  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, or 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 3 tbsp GF flour (I got mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt (Note – As one of my readers pointed out, this may be too much salt for some people, so if you’re not as salt-loving as we are, definitely start with a pinch and adjust based on taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 to 2 tbsp chocolate chips


  • In a small mug/cup/ramekin (I used an espresso mug), mix together all your ingredients except the chocolate chips, until you get sticky cookie dough batter.
  • ** This cookie won’t rise much, so you probably don’t want your mug/cup to be too big. Although I guess you could double or triple the ingredients for more cookie volume!
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Place your mug in the microwave and cook on high for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.
  • ** I suggest doing this in 30 second intervals so you can check on the cookie. If it still looks kind of wet/doughy on top, leave it in the microwave for a little longer. You shouldn’t need more than 1-1/2 minutes though — chocolate chip cookies are supposed to be gooey in the middle!
  • Allow mug and cookie to cool for a little bit, then dig in!
