To reward myself for surviving midterms, I wanted something sweet. Hey, we all deserve a treat once in a while… or every time we get that pesky essay done at the last minute. However, leaving my apartment in my pajamas wasn’t a very appealing option, so I decided to try out a new recipe.
Instead of baking a whole batch of cookies or buying a dozen from your local bakery, throw this simple cookie together in just a few minutes. As a bonus, it’s also a bit healthier; if you’re not familiar with white whole wheat flour, it’s a fiber-filled baking revelation that can replace all-purpose flour without affecting texture.
Single-Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Prep Time:5 minutes
- Cook Time:15 minutes
- Total Time:20 minutes
- 4 1/2 tablespoon white whole wheat flour
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1-2 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.
Add in vanilla extract, butter, and milk. Stir until thoroughly incorporated.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet and form into a cookie.
#SpoonTip: The dough will be a bit crumbly, but don’t worry — a little molding with your hands will do the trick.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until firm and slightly golden. Let cool for a few minutes before devouring with a glass of milk.
#SpoonTip: If the craving can’t wait, microwave on a plate for 45 seconds to a minute instead of baking in the oven.
