Servings 1


  • 1 Tbsp Dairy Free Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Splash Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Egg Yolk*
  • 3 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Mini or Regular Chocolate Chips


  • Pick a mug of your choosing and melt the butter in it by microwaving for about 20 seconds. Check to make sure it doesn't boil.
  • Mix in the two sugars, vanilla, and salt.
  • Mix in the egg yolk.
  • Add the flour. Mix until it's fully incorporated.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips of your choosing. You can add more or less depending on how much you want. Pat the dough down so it's flat. Microwave for 45-50 seconds. It should feel springy if you touch it.
  • Eat hot out of the microwave. Enjoy!


*If you want an eggless, vegan version just add a flax egg in place of the egg yolk. It's 1 teaspoon of ground flax mixed into 2 teaspoons of water. It works well as an egg replacer.
