Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Eggless!)
An Easy Snack!
There's no doubt about it. Chocolate Chip cookies are a crowd pleaser. But what if there is no crowds? Its just you.... craving something tasty. Well, Mike to the rescue! Here's a real easy Chocolate chip cookie recipe that can be whipped up in a single bowl and microwaved to perfection. It makes one Large cookie, and is easy and fun for kids as well as adults. Just like my brownie recipe, I keep a couple of sandwich baggies with the dry ingredients premixed, just to have them ready to go :)
This is another easy recipe, done all in a single, microwave safe bowl. You'll need:
-4 TBSP flour
-1 TBSP white sugar
-1 TBSP brown sugar (dark or light, either is fine)
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-pinch of salt
-1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
-1 TBSP vegetable oil
-3 TBSP Milk (for more crumbly cookies, use only 2. It'll be a firmer, drier dough rather than a batter. You may substitute water, coffee or any other liquid you choose, I simply prefer it with milk)
--Chocolate chips! (I like semi sweet, but use what you prefer)
-Optional- cinnamon, chopped nuts.
Add your dry ingredients to the bowl (but save the chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or any extras for later, they don't go in yet!)
~~be sure to break up those brown sugar clumps! ~~
Then, pour in the wet ingredients. once they are all in, give it a good mix, until a thick batter forms (or a dry dough if you're trying them more crumbly)
With the batter formed, fold in the chocolate chips. If you went with the dough, simply press them in. scrape down the sides of the bowl and place in the microwave. Cooking times vary, but between 50 and 75 seconds seems to be right (for either soft or more crumbly cookies). I have a 1100 watt microwave, and 55 seconds is just right for the soft ones.
After its done, let it sit for 2 minutes, as contents will be HOT!!!!
Remove from the microwave, and either enjoy it warm, or let it cool off for a firmer cookie :) Anyway is fine, so long as you enjoy it :)
Some Extra Ideas!
Why stop at chocolate chips? You could turn these into any kind of cookie you like with alittle modification. That recipe by itself is easily made into a sugar cookie or snickerdoodle type cookie by adding an extra half TBSP of white sugar, and dusting the top with white sugar and cinnamon.
Other chips go great in this cookie too, such as peanut butter chips or caramel ones.
