Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie

I’ve been asked a few times to make a single serve cookie….I never understood why though. I personally would never choose to only eat one cookie however, I guess this is a great recipe for someone who is in desperate need of a cookie but doesn’t feel like making a whole batch. 

So when making this recipe, I wanted to make sure this cookie didn’t have an egg in it. I see a lot of single serve recipes that tell you to add ‘a tablespoon of an egg’.

This works, but then I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with the rest of the egg. So for this cookie I replaced the egg with a teaspoon of a flavourless oil instead, I used vegetable oil. I also tried making it without the oil but this make the cookie kind of dry and crusty so I don’t recommend skipping the oil. 



Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie

Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie


  • 20g unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon any flavourless oil
    (I use vegetable oil)

  • 30g plain flour

  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

  • 30g chocolate chips


  • Start by pre-heating your oven to 180c/350f.
  • In a bowl, add the butter then put this into the microwave to melt.
  • Once it has melted, mix in both sugars and the vanilla. Then add the oil.
  • Now mix in the flour and baking powder. Once a dough forms, mix in the chocolate.
  • Form this into a ball and place this onto a baking paper line tray.
  • Bake the cookie for around 18-20 minutes, once it has baked let it cool down on the tray for 5 minutes before trying to pick it up.
  • I added some flaky salt on top mainly for aesthetic purposes but that is it, enjoy!
