Single-Lady Cookies

Pin It!

Or, rather, cookie.

Just in case you get bored of the Single-Lady Cupcakes.

Now you can have single-serving cookies too!

Single-Lady Cookies

(makes 1 big cookie)

  • 5 level teaspoons flour (15g) (all-purpose, oat flour, or spelt)
  • 1/16th tsp baking soda
  • 1/16th tsp salt (omit if using margarine)
  • 2 tsp oil or pre-melted margarine (or applesauce, only if you like cake-y cookies)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • A little milk of choice, if needed (I use almond milk)
  • handful chocolate chips (or raisins, nuts, etc.)
  • sweetener (My testers liked 1 tsp brown + 1 tsp white sugar. You can easily sub coconut sugar or sucanat. Or try xylitol for a sugar-free cookie.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, then add wet and mix with a fork. Don’t add water. Form into a big cookie and smush. (Or make two little cookies.) Cook for 7-8 minutes.

A different single-lady cookie idea: Just make a regular batch of cookies, roll them into balls, and then freeze the balls. They’ll keep for at least a year, and you can defrost and bake them in whatever quantity you wish!

  1. Yuuum!!!! I’m soooo excited about this recipe!!!!! Thanks!!!! You know what would be good??? A mint chocolate chip cookie….I guess you could sub peppermint extract for the vanilla…..

    1. Oh I just microwaved the cookie!!! Mixed everything together and nuked it for 1 minute. A little crumbly, so you might need to add some liquid, but still tasty!

      1. Wow, you are fast, girl! :)
        Thanks for reporting back. I’m going to have to try your way, now!

        1. Nothing gets between me and cookies! I made this as soon as I read the recipe!=D

  2. I might quadruple this recipe and make a giant cookie!!!!

    I would love to see a single serving cinnamon roll! Man those are the best :)

    I don’t have a microwave, so I’m not much for microwaved recipes 😉

  3. abby says:

    gah that looks gorgeous! i want one. no wait, i want 5 or 6! right now! :)

    1. abby says:

      and um single serving cinnamon bun? i think i would love you forever!

  4. I love that you have developed single serving baked goods! So perfect when you just want one, thank you :-)

  5. Katie I would love to see a single serving cinnamon roll — that sounds delicious!!!

    I will definitely try this tonight or tomorrow — I can’t wait :) :)

  6. Leslie says:

    Single lady brownie! Yes please!

  7. Awesome! I must make this! I want to try it with gluten-free flour.

    I think a single-serving brownie would rock!

    1. Lisa C. says:

      If you try it with gf flour, let me know how it goes! I’d be interested in that too :).

  8. Lisa C. says:

    Love this idea, Katie. I’m glad you went with the chocolate, too :).
    I’m up for a single-serving pecan sticky bun!

  9. Moni'sMeals says:

    this is awesome!

    I say single Cinnamon Roll or scone-type something!


  10. Cindy says:

    Definitely a cinnamon roll! Oh, pretty please!

  11. i would die and go to heaven if you could come up with a GF cinnny roll, that’s also vegan. And doesnt involve 17 milion steps :) I have seen recipes for them but they are uber complicated AND involve using GF flour which usually tastes like gritty sandpaper to me :) The feather in your hat would be if you could do this as a a single serving.

    I still dont know how to make light/fluffy GF pastries that dont taste like cardboard or sandy/gritty. I dunnno, just dont love GF mixes.

    This cookie, job WELL DONE!!! Vegan and wheatfree, nice work! If i was at home and had my vita handy, I’d grind up oats and see where that got me with it. And trial the nuke-box, too. But I am traveling right now :)

    1. Oh my gosh, I hear you, Averie. I am in love with cinnamon rolls, but haven’t had one in ages because they’re just too much darn work to make! Lazy chefs like me would just rather make something that takes 5 minutes. As good as cinnamon rolls are, I just can’t be bothered… I’m too lazy!

  12. I love that you call it “single lady!” Hehe.

  13. Mary says:

    I want a single serving fruit cobbler. I know it’s not chocolate, but it sounds good to me!

  14. Melissa says:

    This looks great, Katie.

    I’d love a single serving cinnamon roll!
    I didn’t like them much as an omni but now that I can’t find vegan ones readily available I crave them… Isn’t that just the way it goes?

    1. Haha yeah. The other day, I was actually craving gummy worms, of all things. I hated them as an omni!

  15. Thank you so much for this recipe Katie. I was just thinking about baking cookies. 😀 I think a single serving brownie would be amazing!

  16. What an awesome recipe. I always need more chocolate cookies in my life.

  17. This cookie monster right here totally approves of this wonderful cookie! :)

  18. YAHOOO can’t wait to make this!!! Tonight, methinks! 😀
    Ooh single-serving brownie would be AWESOME! But any single-serving baked good’ll do me! So get back to work Katie! 😛

  19. lindsay says:

    hmmm, I am thinking a single scone or cinnamon roll. I love the microwave idea too! Your so brilliant!

    1. Brandie says:

      I agree on a single lady cinnamon roll! (Vegan, of course 😉

  20. single serving brownie :) maybe raw? a challenge!

  21. Brandie says:

    MAN do I wish I had some choc chips so I could TRY this right now! Ack! You are amazing, woman!… 😉 Congrats on yet another single lady success *giggle* :)

    1. What about raisins? I’m thinking raisins (and oat flour) would be pretty yummy!

  22. Missy says:

    I love all of your single treats and I vote for cinnamon roll too! But now I’m gonna be singing “All the single cookies, all the single cookies – op-en ya mouths up” in my head the rest of the day!!

    1. Oh no! Now I’m going to sing that too! LOL :)

  23. Alisa Cooks says:

    I forgot to vote, but this is the one I was going to pick, so glad you made it!

    I have to admit, I hate fat-free baked goods, always a tad gummy, so the oil version looks right up my alley. Of course, if I made a single-serving there would be fighting in this household. I will have to make the sports store hottie double version :)

    1. Oil makes everything better. It’s so true :).

  24. I need a Vegan Sugar Cookie recipe – do you have any Katie?

    1. I used to! I cannot find it anywhere, though, so it’s on my list to make up a new one soon!

  25. Ann Claire says:

    That cookie looks great! A single serving brownie or cinnamon roll would be awesome!

  26. Yum! But I’d have to double that. Who can eat just one cookie?

    1. Haha I know, right? I like my “other version” note, because that way I can make up a whole batch and cook as many as I feel like eating so they stay fresh.

  27. ruby red says:

    I have my cookie on the cooling rack right now! I am so impatient! This is actually the second recipe of yours I’ve made today. I made the boatmeal for the first time for my breakfast! It was so great, I’m gonna post my recipe and picture of it very soon! :) Thank you so much!

    Anyway, I would love to see a single-serving cinnamon roll recipe. I have never made cinnamon rolls because I don’t want a million leftovers, and because I don’t want to make a big ole batch! A single serving brownie would be a perfect thing to know how to make too, but I’ve tried and I can’t figure out the proper cooking time or container. I just think brownies need to be nestled next to each other in a big pan in order for it to work… Microwave ones aren’t quite the same either! 😉

    Okay I have killed 3 minutes….almost time to eat my cookie! Thanks again!

    1. I’m so excited to see your post… mainly because I’ve missed ALL your posts, in general. I’ve missed your smiling face :).
      P.S. I just tried Dagoba 100% chocolate for the first time. If you can find this one, BUY it!!!! Sooooooo good :) :).

  28. Stefanie says:

    Thank you for this recipe. There are times when I just want one cookie and don’t feel like making a big batch just for me. I’ll have to try this when all the cookies in my freezer are gone. :)

  29. Char says:

    this is a brilliant idea! if you can come up with a cinammon bun for one, that would just be tops 😀

  30. Debbie C. says:

    Thanks so much Katie.This will be dessert tonite.
    Doughnut – Yes !
    Cinnamon Roll – Yes !
    Brownie – Yes !

    1. Thank YOU for the single-cookie idea, Debbie :). It’s all thanks to you that I even decided to try it :).

  31. yay perfect! i’m going to try this with coconut flour and oil

  32. Yummy!! I love single-serving anything. The idea of a single serving cinnamon bun is awesome!

  33. Wow! That looks yummy! Because of my annoying cinnamon allergy (picture the rock in “The Game Plan”). I have to vote for a doughnut or brownie.

    1. Oh no, cinnamon allergy?! Eh well at least you can have chocolate ;). As much as I love cinnamon, chocolate is far better!!!

  34. Namaste Gurl says:

    Yee-haw for single- lady recipes! Love that you made a cookie recipe, as there’s times when I just want “one cookie”, but don’t have time or want to make a whole batch. Most of my recipes on my blog serve one, so I feel bad I don’t reach out to those who want to cook for more than one, but hey, I’m a single- girl after all :)

    Brownies would be fun next! Iced with coconut butter, that is!

  35. I can’t wait to make this! I vote for a brownie :)

  36. I say single serving blondies. I love those but don’t want to make a full pan because I’ll eat them aaaall day.

    1. Oh my gosh, now that you mentioned it, I want one too!

  37. The cookie looks delicious…I might try to play around with a sugar cookie version though…not a big fan of chocolate chip cookies. 😕
    OMG! A Single Lady Cinnamon Roll would be awesome! Cinnamon Rolls are my weakness! 😛

    1. Oooh please do! I’m tired of cookie experiments, so I’d love for someone else to figure out a sugar cookie. Then I don’t have to do the work of recipe-testing… but I can still eat the result :).

  38. Fi says:

    You genius! I must make! Well, tomorrow, just after eating too much booja booja ice cream! Xx

    1. LOL what is booja booja ice cream? I just looked at your bloggie… but I still don’t know. It sounds ridiculously-fun!

      1. Fi says:

        hehe! it is fun! google “Booja Booja vegan”-it should come up there :) xx

        1. LOL ok I’m off to do that…

  39. Ash says:

    Brownies or blondies!!! =D

  40. kristine says:

    Sooooo cute, I love single serving recipes.

    Actually, most of my recipes are single serving.

    Love this one :)

  41. Love your single servings! I reckon you might have saved a few lives over Christmas by relieving the potential anxiety attacks stemming the endless flow of slightly unsuccessful (but not to be wasted!) baked goods slowly going stale ; )

    I might be shot, as I have to admit to not liking cinnamon *ducks and covers*, but how about a Single-Lady (or Gent) Banana Cake? The bananas we get are huge, and I find myself with 1/2 spare whenever I use them on cereal/oats… Slicing and freezing is a bit of a hassel, and I always forget, so start a frech one the next day anyway. A recipe to use the other half up, whilst also providing a mid-morning snack would be incredible!

    1. You had me sold at “banana” :)

  42. Izzyy says:

    I will MOST DEFINITELY be trying this in the micro! My dad would shoot me if I preheated the big, huge, energy-draining oven for a single cookie 😉 I’m sure it’ll turn out amazingg.

    I’d love you forever if you created a (yeast free!!) single lady cinnamon roll. With coconut-butter frosting, mayhap?? 😉


  43. purplegirl says:

    1st choice: brownie
    2nd choice: cinnamon roll

  44. Erica says:

    I discovered that it’s possible to burn a single lady cookie. :S oops. I tried it in the microwave and a minute and forty five sec was just too much for the poor thing. The unburnt edges were very tasty nevertheless.

    I was also wondering if you wouldn’t mind doing a shout out to Angela from Oh She Glows. She made it to the finals of Project Food Blog on Foodbuzz (and is the only remaining vegan) and every vote counts.

    1. Of course! She definitely has my support! And my vote hehe :).

  45. BroccoliHut says:

    Delicious! Have you done single-serving spice cake yet?

  46. Kelly Michelle says:

    Sounds delicious! I have found that for recipes such as this a fantastic sub that is in between oil/ applesauce is melted banana, freeze it and then thaw it in the micro or on the stove and it gets liquidy when you mash it. The result is a baked good that is not as cakey as when you use the applesauce PLUS it makes things really sweet so you can cut back on the sugar! I often make protein cakes that are kind of a cross b/t your protein cake, your single lady cupcake that I’ve been making for years and I have tried everything from applesauce to banana, to oil to pureed prunes to pumpkin and the best result is by far melted banana you just have to mash it into the dough really well.

    I bet these cookies would also be great w/ half flour and half oatmeal!

    1. Wow, Kelly, thank you sooooo much for the idea! I’m definitely going to try your advice!! :)

  47. *Andrea* says:

    brownie!!!!!! or blondie!!

  48. VEGirl says:

    Wow, this looks so yummy! I think I could make this in the toaster oven? I wouldn’t feel bad eating one of these for breakfast, with some fresh fruit! Actually, I think I’ll go make the dough for tomorrow morning, right now! It’s so simple looking, and I’m glad there’s an applesauce option. I’m gonna make mine raisin…. and I’ll let you know what GF flour combo I do!

    A single cinnamon roll sounds awesome…. and then a brownie is next on the list. YUM!

    Merry Christmas!

    1. Oh wow, please do try it in the toasted oven :)!
      Just be warned that the applesauce option isn’t nearly as rich/buttery.

  49. Julia says:

    This looks delicious! I love the single serving idea. I might just have to make it tomorrow..
    Also, a single lady cinnamon bun would be AMAZING!

  50. i LOVE YOU- this is beyond awesome

  51. brownie, cinnamon roll AND doughnut!

  52. The perfect recipe!!! Love all the single lady recipes you have done…I would say brownies for your next recipe ; )


  53. inge says:

    Love the idea! How about a one-piece serving of carrot cake? I’m sure that would make all the single chicas happier than ever :)

  54. Gracie says:

    Your single-serving cookie looks so much better (and more like a real cookie) than mine!! Definitely giving this a try :)

    1. Ooh let me know what you think!! :) :)

  55. Tehsina says:

    OMG Katie I just made a cookie with soy flour, pumpkin and dark chocolate chips in the microwave and it was amazing!!!! I had to make another one right away lol. You’re such a darling for posting this, thank you!!!! =D

    1. Aw, no YOU are a darling for leaving such a sweet comment :). How long did you microwave it?

  56. Christa (@ChristineHacksh) says:

    Katie! I tried your cookie and found it pretty dry / too dry to form a cookie, are the measurements correct? (I tried it twice). Either way, I love your blog, every other recipe I have tried has been awesome.

    1. Hi Christa,
      Nope, the measurements are definitely correct, and I’ve actually already gotten around 15 or so comments/emails from people who’ve tried it with good results. But can you tell me what oil you used? And what flour? And did you add any ingredients to the original recipe (or subtract anything? Or add water? Hopefully I can help figure out what went wrong :-?.

      1. Christa (@ChristineHacksh) says:

        I didn’t add anything extra the first time, second time a little water after I followed all the directions so it would stay in tact and be a cookie. Flour-wise I used AP and oil was melted EB.

        Don’t worry too much, it still tasted awesome and served as a yummy break-from-cramming-for-exams-snack!

        1. I haven’t tried it with ap flour, but I did use earth balance for one test, and it came out soft with spelt flour… Maybe it’s an oven thing? Maybe your oven is more powerful?
          Also, every time I added water, it came out drier, so I’d caution against that. Good luck with exams lol :).

        2. Valerie says:

          I just made this, using ap flour, and it turned out nice and moist for me. But if you want it moister, maybe you could try adding a little more earth balance? Also, brown sugar makes moister cookies, so up the ratio of brown to white. And take your cookie out when it’s still a little undercooked, because cookies will still cook a little after they come out of the oven.

  57. bitt says:

    this is actually perfect for a non-single GUY in my house who wants cookies all the time. i like the idea of balls in the freezer for him. then he can pop and bake on his own.

  58. Mia says:

    mine turned out great! i used peanut flour and whole wheat pastry flour and added chocolate chips and nuts. it was delish (i think. i definitely inhaled it in .8 seconds, so the taste probably didn’t even really register. =/)

  59. Natalie says:

    is there a wet ingredient missing – mine is just a bunch of crumbs!

    1. Oh no :(.
      The recipe definitely isn’t missing anything, as a lot of people have already made the cookie with good results. But what ingredients did you use? Did you maybe use margarine and not pre-melt it? Hopefully we can figure it out :).

      1. Natalie says:

        Thanks! I used margarine and ended up having to add water. in my second try I used maple syrup and added apple sauce to make it consistent. I guess it’s just playing around w/ it a bit!

        1. If you use margarine, you DEFINITELY have to pre-melt it first. Otherwise you have no liquid.

  60. This looks great! How DO you come up with your recipes? And who are these “taste-testers” ? Elves? :)…I want to be a taste-tester…and an Elf…y’know, just sayin’….

    Do you not use any oil? A little bit of fat is good for you though! Or melted nut butter or coconut butter perhaps?

    Also, have you ever subbed Stevia in recipes for sugar? I did a couple of recipes without sugar and just added a Stevia packet – seemed okay, but I’m not sure if it’s “correct”.

    LOVE your blog! (and the colors)

  61. Sarah says:

    Hello Katie! I was wondering…if you make a batch and freeze the balls…well, I was wondering how to do that! Would I wrap each ball in plastic wrap, or give each its own ziploc bag, or…? Thank you! I just found your blog yesterday and I LOVE it!

    1. Hey Sarah! I’m so glad you found me :).
      We usually just put all the balls together in a ziploc bag and then freeze them. Because they’re frozen, they don’t stick to each other when you go to take one out. :)

  62. Brandi says:

    I just made this cookie and changed it into a Single Dad Cookie :) It turned out great and so I blogged about it here: Thanks so much for a recipe like this! I know you said no water, but I did add some almond milk and it turned out fine it wasn’t dry like you said it would be with water in a comment before.

  63. I made this using a combination of brown rice flour and tapioca flour, oil and cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. I squashed it all into s small, fairly fat disc and cooked on a sprayed plate for 1 minute in the microwave. Delicious, and so convenient! And I don’t have to feel bad about eating the whole batch, haha!

  64. nadia@ says:

    i tried this for the first time – i used quinoa flour and well lets just say you made my night.
    (as you have made many of my nights) :)
    thank you for all the spectacular “single-lady” recipes. you are Amazing! XXO

  65. Amber Schaefer says:

    Do a single serving brownie! Or single serving ice cream, or single serving banana bread! :)

  66. Ola says:

    just made this! i doubled the recipe and threw in raisins and oatmeal instead of chocolate chips. came out a little crumbly but still delicious and just what i needed. mmmmmmmmm. :)

    1. Oh my gosh, a single-lady oatmeal raisin cookie actually sounds even better to me than a chocolate chip one right now! :)

  67. I vote that you do a Cinnamon Roll…and dare you to either make a gluten free version or a raw version!!!

  68. Alison says:

    Hi Katie!

    I just recently found your blog, and let me just say if I wasn’t married already, I would probably propose to you. You’re so amazing haha (I mean come on, I totally used to eat all my meals with chopsticks as well, but I left them all back home when I moved D:)! Since I cannot however, me and my hubby (well mostly me, muwahaha) can enjoy your awesome recipes! You’re an inspiration to lots of people, whether they are vegan or omnivore (or hardcore steaklovers I’m sure!) It’s blogs like yours that definitely help those who are interested in leading a more vege/vegan lifestyle see how easy and tasty it can be to adjust (such as myself) who also love to bake/eat/swim in chocolate etc!

    ANYWAY, enough gushing, I just wanted to let you know I’ve just made and consumed a very delicious single lady cookie. I was very limited in what I had (didn’t go shopping today, so no chocolate!), and combining with another reader’s (Brandi’s) tweaks, I cut the flour down to 4tsp since I was using regular wholewheat flour, added 1tsp of oat milk (soo delicious), and added a sprinkle of allspice. Microwaved it for 50 seconds…and OH MAN, it was so delicious! Reminded me of Christmas haha, was cakey but not dry (I used oil), and reminded me of hermits or gingerbread. I’ll definitely grab some spelt flour and chocolate chips and try your recipe properly, as well as other flavor combos, but I just wanted to thank you for such awesome inspirations and how much effort you put out there for your readers! I’m glad I found your blog! Take care!


    1. Awwwww!!! !!! Well, if you offered chocolate, I’d probably say yes ;).
      Thank you so so much for such a kind comment!

  69. Em says:

    hey i am LOVING ur blog!! my sixteenth birthday is soon and i sO wanna try some recipes to take to the beach with me (: (:
    btw how would you make this if you wanted to make a lot of them?? like lets say–16? not sure how id double it all up–

    my blog is — hope you follow/subscribe!
    I’m also on twitter-Marielxox16 and i am now following u!
    hope u follow back!

    1. Hmmm… I haven’t actually made a bigger batch yet LOL! I do have a chocolate chip cookie recipe listed on my blog, but I haven’t “healthified” it yet; I posted it a long time ago.

      I’ll definitely be sure to check out your blog, pretty lady! And happy almost 16!!!

  70. Paige says:

    If I wanted to make an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie (my fav) should i sub it for some of the flour?

    1. Hi Paige,
      I actually don’t know… I would assume that yes, you should replace some of the flour if you’re going to use oats. But I can’t say for sure. If you try it, let me know how it goes! :)

  71. Pine Apple says:

    Mmm, I just made this with a few alterations and it’s so yummylicious and convenient! Instead of oil I used 3T soy milk and then I nuked it on a lower setting (480W) for 2 minutes. It’s more like a single pancake than a cookie, but fabulous nonetheless (maybe I should have left it in longer but the phone rang, lol)

    Oh and I sweetened it with stevia … I’m gaining confidence in sweetening small amounts of food with it but have no clue how I would do it with normal sized cakes and such. Maybe you could do a post about baking with stevia some time? Like how much should go in, if and how it changes the baked good, what we need to watch out for?
    Here in the EU, stevia is not yet approved as a food, but most organic stores carry it as a “bath additive” (it’s already approved as a cosmetic) so they can’t really give any instructions on the bottle (would be a little … suspicious).

    Haha ok, thanks for the great recipe and all the trying, testing and developing you’re constantly at! I appreciate your hard work!

  72. lovefoodlove says:

    I was wondering what the nutrition stats for this is?

    1. Sorry, I don’t know. But just add all the individual ingredients up to find it. Since it’s single-serving, you don’t need to do any dividing.

  73. Bethany says:

    I just made this cookie and it was pretty good–note: vegetable oil was a bad choice in oils but it was all I had in the house! Next time I’m totally using coconut, it probably would have been WAAYYYYY better.

    My husband was mocking the name of the cookie and booing the size, so he decided to Google the “single man cookie” in order to prove the size would be bigger. I laughed my butt off when his search turned up nothing because as we all know…single men don’t bake!

    This is the third recipe of yours that I’ve tried and so far I’m a big fan. I love your blog and your attitude–you are so positive and sunny! It’s very uplifting to read your posts and I look forward to them daily!


    1. Aww thanks, Bethany!
      And lol… for some reason, men seem to be bigger on savory foods than sweet ones! And I even know some men who don’t like chocolate!!!

      The single lady cookie is actually not my personal favorite… I like these better:
      Thanks for such a sweet comment! :)

  74. Camille says:

    Made this tonight and really enjoyed it! It has been months since I’ve had a chocolate chip cookie! It definetely satisfied that craving! Also, I made it with oat flour and it was very nice! I love the oaty-flavor :)

  75. LilVeganBunny says:

    Just made this in the toaster oven! I used half spelt and half oats. Also, I added cinnamon! It came out PERFECT! The best part is there’s nothing to clean except a tiny mixing bowl :) thank you for this!!

  76. Hope says:

    I request a Red Velvet single lady!

  77. Steph says:

    I just made this – delicious! Do you know if there’s a way to make it chewy? Mine came out really soft (just the way you like it!) but I like chewy cookies :)

    1. cck says:

      Hmmm… I think it depends on the flour you use. And how long you cook it! And what oil/fat you use. Can you tell me more specifics about what you used?

      1. Steph says:

        I used all-purpose flour, coconut oil, brown sugar+agave and cooked it for 8 minutes.

        1. Maybe try not using the agave.
          And also, you could try spelt flour or ww pastry for a more dense cookie.

          1. Steph says:

            Thank you! I’ll try that :)

  78. Jennifer says:

    I make this cookie all the time! Especially when I make banana ice cream. It’s so delicious! Always come to your blog to make any type of sweets, since their healthy, vegan, and gluten-free! I’m so glad I came upon your blog! 😀

  79. Felicia says:

    Made mine with applesauce and it turned out delish! I’m really excited to see a single lady cinnamon role soon, hint hint, haha…

    1. I have a cinnamon roll recipe… unfortunately it is nowhere near single-lady lol

      1. Felicia says:

        Oh, really?! I love cinnamon rolls! I guess I’ll have to make it and share… Sidenote, I gave my ten year old sister a bite of my single lady cookie, and she said it was the best cookie she’d ever eaten, and it was FAT FREE. Woah! The applesauce actually gave the cookie an incredible texture… Thanks for sharing, Katie (:

        1. Aw lol thank YOU for making them!

    i know you dont like doing calories but do you happen to know what it is for this?

  81. Hayley says:

    I just made this after three attempts! First time I accidently used five tablespoons of flour instead of 5 teaspoons. Second attempt I actually read the recipe properly but then proceeded to catch it on fire in the microwave. Third attempt it was FANTASTIC! So soft and crumbly! I’ll def. make these again! I love all your recipes that I can never decide what to make! Thank you for sharing all your recipes!

    1. Oh goodness lol! So glad third time was the charm :).

  82. Rachel says:


    I love your blog! These recipes are awesome especially since I’m a chocoholic!
    Just wondering, do you have calories/nutritional info somewhere for the recipes?

    Thank you!!

    1. Thanks, Rachel :)

      Yes, if a recipe has nutrition facts, they’ll be listed in a link that says something like “click for calorie info” right under the actual recipe ingredients in that post. All of my newer recipes have nutrition facts.

  83. Sophie says:


    This seems like an awesome recipe, but i was just wondering if it would be possible to add some oats. If so, what changes should i make to the recipe and cooking instructions? i am in no way an expert on changing recipes so any words of advice would be really helpful.


    1. Sorry, I never know how a recipe will turn out unless I try it. But edible experiments are always fun!

    2. Sandi says:

      Hi Sophie, sorry to jump in here but if I were to try this with oats I would probably eliminate 1-2t of flour and add 2t of oats. It’s hard to say what will work with such a small recipe, but I hope it works out for you!

  84. Sandi says:

    Today I made a big batch of cookies and they got eaten before I could have one! I was so disappointed, but then I found this recipe and made one extra cookie just for me! It was so delicious! You made my day! Thank you!

  85. Amelia says:

    Hey Katie,

    Love your website :) everything is so delicious! I made this cookie yesterday after searching through your website for hours (haha mind you I loved every second of it) but could you please put this recipe on the recipe index with the other cookies :) Thank you! Ps the cookie was amazingly scrumptious!!

    1. Wow, so weird! I thought it was there. I’ll make a note to fix it today. Thanks for letting me know!

  86. Mariel says:

    will oat flour work for these??? 😀

    1. I haven’t tried it, but I love oat flour in other cookie recipes… so probably. :)

  87. AK says:

    You are a genius! Tonight I had a total sugar craving. I was dead tired and craving sugar and wanted something NOW. I am currently trying to not eat sugar. I have followed your blog for a while now, but haven`t tried any of your yummy recipes..until now and now I`m hooked! I tried your single serving cookie ball, and single serving cookie:) As sweetener I used 1 tsp xylitol and 1 tsp brown coconut sugar, and added raisins instead of chocolate chips. What a delicious recipe, almost taste like regular cookies, except much more healthy. My sugar craving is totally satisfied and I`m happy again:) So simple, so delicious! Thank you!

  88. Sophie says:

    Ok, so I know this post is from like a year and a half ago, but a Single serving brownie would be INCREDIBLE!!!
    :) Gotta go make this!!

    1. Maybe try the One Minute Cake in a Mug recipe? It’s the closest thing I have to a single-serving brownie.

  89. Katie says:

    I like the idea of a single serving cinnamon roll! I would use that recipe like it’s nobody’s business! Ps. I love your blog…and not just because I love chocolate and my name is also Katie :)

    I figured nutrition information based on 1 tbsp skim milk, 1 tsp chocolate chips, and sweetener as suggested.

    240 calories, 11 g fat, 33 g carb, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein

  91. Anita says:

    As soon as I saw this, I had to try it. As I was mixing it up, I thought to myself, “This might be good with some pumpkin in it.” So, I added a couple teaspoons of pumpkin and a half teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. It turned out SOOOOOOO GOOOOD. I’m still giving you all the credit though, because I would not have known where to start this by myself.

    Also, thank you for giving creating such delicious desserts that don’t wreck my healthy eating efforts. I recommend you to all my friends! :)

  92. Susan says:

    So, just wanted you to know that I made these tonight! I changed up and replaced one tsp of flour for 1 tsp of PB2. I love peanut butter chocolate chip cookies!!

    I also made this in the toaster oven. Of course I did NOT preheat it (does anyone pre-heat a toaster oven?) so it did take longer to bake, about 15 min for me. Yummmmy!

  93. Carrie A. says:

    I can’t wait to try this! Do you have the nutrition information for these? I will be making a cookie for my snack tonight! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!

  94. Morgan says:

    What is the nutritional content on this recipe i cant find calories on any of the single serving recipes? Can anyone help please

    1. Sorry, I don’t have nutritional info for this cookie. I didn’t start including calories until about a year ago. But all posts as of that time will have nutrition info :).

  95. Rachel K. says:

    I just tried this recipe! I was really in need of something sweet and I have been trying out some of your recipes the last couple weeks. I have made the 1-minutes choc. cake 3 times and it is delish! I figured I would try something else today. My cookie does not look like yours. It puffed up quite a bit and is cakey (probably because I used applesauce) but it is amazing! It is sort of a combination of a scone and a muffin. Thank you for helping me satisfy my sweet tooth while keeping my WW points in check. :-)

    P.S. I also added some shredded coconut. It adds some nice crunch and flavor.

  96. Tara says:

    I made this tonight and it was yummy! I used melted coconut butter instead of oil and added a little oatmeal. Ill be trying out more of the single serving recipes!

  97. Chelseaaaaa says:

    I just made this with 3 T spelt flour and 2 T rolled oats (not ground into flour, but whole), coconut oil, 70% choc chips and walnuts. Amazing!!!! Thanks! :))

  98. Jaime says:

    You. Are. Win.
    I made a larger batch because I wanted a few smaller cookies to share.
    I made my own oat flour and applesauce, and I did need some milk with it. I also used a dash of cinnamon.
    This is the first time in ages that I haven’t felt guilty (or disgusting from added sugars) from eating more than one chocolate chip cookie. My sister-in-law enjoyed the oat-y flavor and the hint of apple.

    Thank you!

  99. Avery Chris says:

    Just made this with homemade nutella chips and it was AMAZING ! Your single serving desserts make my day !!

  100. Jordan says:

    Didn’t have a 1/16 tsp measuring spoon, so obviously I doubled the recepie. Ate the whole thing (pretty sure that defeats the whole healthy thing, but oh well)

  101. Sarah says:

    Made five of these tonight for me and my roommates and everybody loved them! :)

  102. Emily says:

    I made this yesterday and it was super good! I made mine with apple sauce though and it was definitely more cakey than a cookie. Next time I think I will try it with the oil instead. Awesome recipe!

  103. Lindsey Oliver says:

    Hello Katie!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful inspirational and motivating recipes. I have recently turned a new leaf in life and have completely change the way I eat. Your website is so helpful to me when knowing what and how to substitute healthy ingredients. For the past month I have been trying out one of your recipes each week and every one of them have been delicious! Thank you for all of your insight into living a healthier happy life!

    How many calories are in this recipe?:)x

  105. Tobi says:

    Hi! I just wanted to thank you for your single serve desert recipes! They are saving my waistline (as I will eat an entire batch of cookies in two days!). The only trouble is that they are so easy to make it is hard not to go back to the kitchen and make more ;).

  106. Alexis says:

    Just made this in the microwave and it worked quite well (not as perfect as an oven baked cookie, but good for when you need a cookie NOW or can’t use an oven.) I recommend oiling the plate that you microwave it on as the cookie stuck a bit. Thank you Katie for your small batch and single lady recipes!

  107. Cat says:

    my favorite thing about vegan baking is that you don’t technically have to bake anything—these were superb raw!!!

  108. Cyrielle says:

    Seems very good! what’s the nutritional value?
