Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie — GF, Vegan

The other night, cruising Pinterest (you can follow me here), I spied an Instant Chocolate Chip Cookie that was to drool for. So I repinned it and left a comment wondering if it could be modified to be gluten-, dairy-, and egg-free.

To my delight, Erin of Sift, Stir & Savour responded with an enthusiastic "Yes it can!" and linked to this post.

Well, be still my heart, I have been singing Erin's praises for the past three nights ... because we made these for dessert for the last three nights ... and each time, oh man, good stuff. I mean how can you beat making—and eating—a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie in under five minutes!?

Try it! I dare you.

Using Erin's original recipe, I cut the chocolate chips in half to reduce the sweetness and added an extra pinch of salt and two pinches of baking soda to "up" the cookie dough taste. For the how-to's, visit Sift, Stir & Savour where you will find the original recipe and lots more inspiration. Thanks Erin!!

Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie


1 tablespoon unsweetened APPLESAUCE
2 tablespoons COCONUT SUGAR (or any granulated sugar)
2 tablespoons nondairy YOGURT (I used SoDelicious Vanilla Coconut)
1/4 teaspoon gluten-free VANILLA EXTRACT 
1/4 cup gluten-free OAT FLOUR (I grind oats in my blender or coffee grinder)
2 pinches SALT
2 pinches BAKING SODA
1 tablespoon allergen-free CHOCOLATE CHIPS


For the directions, visit the original post.

Though I have yet to try it, Shirley of GFE left a comment saying she used almond flour in place of the oat flour and that it came out great. Thanks Shirley!

Lexie, I made it today and loved it! I subbed sour cream for the yogurt because that's what I had on hand. And I've had issues with gf oat flour in the last week, so I used almond flour instead. So good!! Now I have a great "go to" treat/dessert, thanks to you! I actually think Mr. GFE and I could split this as it makes plenty and is so filling, but this time around, I enjoyed it all by myself. ;-)


Shirley, that's GREAT to know. I will make those notes in the post for the almond flour peeps :) xoLexie

I'm all about mug cakes, but I have not tried a cookie! I am so making this one! Wow!

Does anyone have suggestions about using this in a counter top convection oven instead of a microwave.?. we got rid of the microwave a few yrs ago due to all the things we learned about how bad it is . Would love to be able to bake this in individual little ramekins or oven proof mugs.

I have tried a lot of different GF baked goods and mug cakes and this is by far the best GF mug cookie I've ever made. Thanks for the recipe! I didn't have any apple sauce so I just used an extra tbs of yogurt and it was great!

Yay Sigourney!! :) Thanks for the extra yogurt tip, too. xoLexie
