This is basically cookie dough, mixed right up there in a mug, in next to no time, cooked until it is in a state of slightly underdone goo-ey chocolate chip cookie perfection, then enjoyed immediately, while warm, with or without a big blob of vanilla ice cream on the top.

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug
- 1 tablespoons / 15 ml oil of choice , liquid coconut oil, sunflower oil, vegetable oil, mild olive oil (or 1 tablespoon of drippy nut butter for an oil-free cookie)
- 1 tablespoon / 15 ml water
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons ground flax seed , if you don't have ground flax you can omit it. It still works but the texture doesn't get so cookie-like. Don't swap the flax for chia seeds. They don't look good in it and give it a weird texture.
- ⅛ teaspoon fine salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar , cane sugar works well but turbinado or white sugar is ok
- ¼ cup / 32 g / 4 tablespoons all purpose flour (in the UK use plain flour). To make this recipe gluten-free, use certified gluten-free oat flour and increase the amount to 6 tablespoons.
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda (bicarbonate of soda in the UK)
- 2 tablespoons dairy free chocolate chips
PLEASE SEE THE RECIPE NOTES BEFORE YOU MAKE A START
- To a mug, add the oil (or drippy nut butter), water, vanilla, ground flax, salt and sugar. Stir them up, then add the flour and baking soda. Stir together until everything is combined. Don't over-mix it. Then add the chocolate chips and stir gently again. If you used nut butter instead of oil, you might find that it's a bit too stiff to stir. If so add a teaspoon or 2 of water to loosen it up slightly.
- Smooth the top out a little then place the mug in a microwave and cook on high for 45 seconds. Leave to stand for 30 seconds to 1 minute before eating for optimum cookie texture.
