Sometimes you want a brownie at 10 p.m. but your oven doesn’t work and you don’t have anything to make brownies. So you turn to Pinterest and search “brownie mug” and are eating cookies from a mug in less than 5 minutes. Welcome to my life. Be jealous.
The only pre-made mix I had in my pantry was peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Not a brownie but close enough. And after searching Pinterest for .5 seconds I went to work on the easiest dessert in the history of the world.
I like baking because it requires patient and exact measurement. It’s not often you can stray from a recipe and have the result taste amazing. Well, probably if you are anyone else but me. But not even I could mess this up so go forth and microwave people!
Cookie Mug Recipe
1/2 a bag of cookie mix
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon egg (I used Egg Beaters Egg Whites – I’m watching my figure)
1 tablespoon water
Chocolate Chips (optional)
Step 1: Combine all those ingredients in a bowl and scoop into a microwaveable safe mug.
Step 2: Cook for 1:30 – 2:00 minutes.
Step 3: Eat.
For an extra touch I used all those calories I saved by using Egg Beaters Egg Whites and poured chocolate syrup on top of my cookie. But do as you please, no one is judging you here.
I was so shocked at how good this was that I probably will never make anything without first consulting Pinterest. Thank you for creating a monster crafty ladies of the world! Excuse me while I go and try and figure out what else I can make in a mug.
