How To Make Cookie in a Mug

  1. Grab your favorite regular size mug, place butter inside and microwave to melt, about 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir in sugar substitutes until well combined. Add egg yolk and vanilla stirring to combine well. Add almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and chips. Stir until just combined. Use a paper towel to clean edges inside mug if desired. Microwave for 60-75 seconds. My microwave cooked the cookie in 60 seconds. Remove from microwave and use a plastic knife to run around edges of cookie. Let cool for about 10 minutes and carefully remove. I used an offset spatula to help remove cookie from mug. Should come out just fine when you loosen edges with a knife then use an offset spatula to remove onto a serving plate. Whip heavy cream and powdered sugar substitute until whipped cream forms. Spoon whipped cream on top of cookie and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.

Where Can I Find Sugar Free Chocolate Chips?

I’ve had good luck finding sugar free chocolate chips at my local grocery store. If you have a Sprouts near you, they have them too. I get the brand Lily’s. I resort to Amazon if I can’t seem to find things at my grocery stores.

What Kind Of Mug Should I Use?

I like to use a regular size coffee mug. One that is not on the smaller side or larger side. I find that the regular size coffee mug cooks the cookie with the best result in 60 seconds.

When you remove the cookie from the microwave when cooked, use a plastic knife (to prevent sticking) and run it along the sides of your mug to loosen all edges. Let cool for a good 10-15 minutes before removing.

To remove the cookie in one piece, I found it best to use an offset spatula to get underneath the cookie and carefully transfer to the serving plate.

How To Serve Cookie in a Mug

I made some homemade whipped cream with a powdered sugar substitute by Swerve. Takes just a couple minutes and really adds to the cookie! Dust with a little ground cinnamon and enjoy room temperature or warmed slightly if desired.

Leftovers are unlikely, but should you need to store any leftover cookie, place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Can I Freeze Cookie in a Mug?

Yes you can. Once cookie has been removed from the mug and cooled, place it into an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw to room temperature before enjoying.

    I haven’t made this yet but it looks scrumptious!! One note, when choosing the print option the ingredient list and instructions leave out the pumpkin puree.
