Dinner fail, dessert win.

Single-serving chocolate chip cookie

Tonight I attempted an old recipe with a new fish, and it didn’t go well. Haddock is so “fish-and-chips” fish that no amount of leeks, dill, lemon, asparagus, or white wine could dress it up. I decided to make up for the dinner fail with a dessert win: single-serving chocolate chip cookies. If you want to make this gluten-free, add a little less gluten-free flour to compensate for how “thirsty” gluten-free all-purpose flour can be.

This was quite a decadent treat, one we cannot justify more than once in a while, but it made up for my earlier disappointment.

Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie (Single Serve)


Course: Desserts

Cuisine: American

Prep Time: 2 Min

Cook Time: 1 Min

Total Time: 3 Min

Serves: 1


  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate chips


  1. In a small bowl mix together sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Mix in flour, stir until well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Transfer batter into a microwave safe bowl (a ramekin works just fine for me). Microwave on high for 50 seconds. Remove it from the microwave and let it cool for a minute and dig in.
