Chocolate Chip Microwave Cookies

Chocolate chip microwave cookies –

Because sometimes (all the time?) you need chocolate chip cookies even in the summer.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies Without An Oven - Soft and delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies using basic ingredients, ready in 5 minutes or less:

And by you, I mean me.

But surely I can’t be the only one who craves chocolate chip cookies year-round, right? For the record, I also crave sweet potatoes year-round. And gingerbread year-round. And roasted vegetables year-round. (Thankfully, you can roast vegetables in the slow cooker!)

For recipes like pumpkin pie or double layer chocolate cake, you’re probably going to have to turn on an oven. But for chocolate chip cookies, luckily an alternative exists!

There are three options with this recipe: Option one lets you make chocolate chip cookies in the microwave. The microwave cookies have a chewy texture, almost like chocolate lace cookies. (Chocolate chip lace cookies?!) And they only take about a minute to make! For readers who don’t have access to a microwave or choose not to use one, you can also eat the raw dough, as it’s free of eggs. Or you can make these in a toaster oven. Or, if it gets hot enough, you could go outside and bake them on the pavement.

Maybe notsomuch that last option. But when I lived in Texas, the summers were so hot that it just might have worked!

Although… I think that would have been stretching the 5 second rule just a little. 😕

wholesome sweeteners

For this particular batch of microwave cookies, I used Wholesome! organic coconut sugar, an unrefined sugar–not an artificial sugar substitute–that can be used like regular brown sugar in any of my healthy cookies recipes and is sustainable and also safe for vegans.

Wholesome! sponsored this post; they provided samples for me to use in experimenting. But even if they had not, they’ve been my go-to sweetener company for years.

(The company recently went through a rebranding, so you might remember them as Wholesome Sweeteners.)

Chocolate Chip Microwave Cookies

(Makes 6-7 chocolate chip cookies)

Adapted from my favorite Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/3 cup + 1/4 cup oat, spelt, or white flour (70g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar – I like Wholesome! Organic Coconut Sugar  (22g)
  • 1-4 tbsp chocolate chips, as desired
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp (12g) vegetable or coconut oil (or pre-melted margarine)
  • 1-3 tbsp milk of choice, as needed (15-45g)

Microwave Cookies Recipe: In a mixing bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients, and stir to form a thin dough. Freeze the dough until it is firm enough to form balls. You can either keep them in the freezer and eat the unbaked cookie dough balls whenever you wish, or “bake” in the microwave or toasted oven. If using the microwave: put each cookie on a separate (greased) plate so they won’t run together. Microwave each cookie 1 minute. (This is based on a 1000-watt microwave. Baking times may vary, depending on your microwave’s wattage.) The cookie will look a bit underdone, so let it cool for at least 15 minutes before touching. If using a toaster oven: Preheat oven to 325F, place 2 cookies on a greased oven tray, and bake 7 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before handling.

You can also store uneaten cookie dough balls in the freezer for another day. Let frozen dough balls thaw before cooking. These cookies are very soft and thin, almost like chewy lace cookies.

    I am a teacher and I love your recipes. Whenever I need to make a special treat with or for my kids your recipes are the ones I use. In my classroom I do not have access to an oven, so I brought my toaster oven to school . I have made muffins, cupcakes, doughnuts, and several different kinds of cookies with my kids and they all bake beautifully in the toaster oven. You can pretty much bake anything in a toaster oven, it just takes more time because you have to bake them in smaller batches

  2. Lauren says

    Thank you! No you aren’t the only one that needed a cookie 5 minutes ago 😉 my oven isn’t working either but since it is July I haven’t been proactive about fixing it. Yay for procrastination and cookies!

  3. Nicole {} says

    I don’t have a microwave but I’m totally all about trying these in the toaster oven! Why haven’t I thought of that?! I usually eat half the dough raw whenever I make cookies though and by the time they get baked I don’t even want any (but I have some anyways : )

  4. Sherry says

    Yum! Will be trying this recipe! I’m thinking pizza stone outside in the sun might work (don’t too fond of the microwave).

  5. Anne-Sophie says

    These look amazing!
    I have had success in the past with making a giant cookie in a skillet and cooking it on the stove, or putting the cookies on foil and then baking them on the higher rack in the BBQ!
    Sometimes its just too hot to start up the oven, but you need cookies 😛
    Thank you for the recipe, love your blog!

  6. Hannah says

    Oooh I didn’t know that coconut sugar was unrefined! I don’t make recipes that call for granulated sugar because I only knew of the refined kind. Going out to look for it today!

    The cookies look delish!

  7. Jenn says

    Hi Katie,
    I made these today, using the microwave method. They were perfect! I made two cookies and have more for later 😉

  8. Jill says

    For a paleo version of these, I used 1/3 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup arrowroot in place of the flour. I haven’t tried cooking them yet, but the batter is delicious! I have cookie dough balls in my freezer for tonight’s snack!

    • Lorraine says

      July 18th is my birthday. I randomlyy read these posts ’cause my oven broke and microvave cookies sound good,
      But this post made me laugh. Thanks

  9. Hannah says

    I am like cookie dough’s biggest fan ever. Thank you VERY much!!! This will be my summertime cookie recipe when it’s too hot to use the oven. =)

  10. Avra says

    I don’t know about the sidewalk, but on a really hot day you can actually bake cookies in your car. Google it. 😀

  11. kaytee says

    Oops – my dough was pretty firm so I didn’t freeze it, but I didn’t think about how that might affect the cooking time. My first cookie started to burn and filled the microwave with smoke! For the second one I cooked on a lower power for about 30 seconds and that one looks okay… I have put the rest in the freezer, but I may just eat the dough 😀

  12. Another Katie says

    In case anybody has the bright idea of putting three cookies on one plate and microwaving for three minutes, don’t do it. I did and was alerted at one minute left by the smell of smoke. Opened the door and saw the cookies blackened and smoking. I touched the plate tentatively to see how hot it was at it cracked right in half :(. So, again, DO NOT put the cookies in for three minutes, or even two. Bad, bad idea.

  13. Sarah says

    The cookie dough is great and microwaved well, but like Another Katie mentioned, my china plate cracked due to the sudden and uneven heating and cooling. (I didn’t try her three-cookie method but stuck to the recipe and was pretty dismayed by the cracking.) Unless you’ve got plates to spare or are able or willing to try this with a plastic or glass plate, which heat and cool differently than ceramic, I really would not recommend trying the microwave method. Just eat the raw dough, bake it, or fry it (if you don’t want to turn on the oven).

  14. Jamie says

    WOW these are really good! Like so good I couldn’t just eat one or two. Nope, I had to microwave three separate cookies. And now I am very very happy because I am on a chocolate high from some really great chocolate chip cookies that I didn’t even need an oven to make. Brilliant! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  15. Teesha says

    I have to leave a comment. This is my go to! I’m super impatient but with this cook “one at a time” nonsense (:P) I actually can portion control for once! THANK YOU so much! It’s delicious and helps with people who lack self control!



  16. Andreia says

    What kind of plate did you use in the microwave? Some comments talked about plates cracking so I’d like to know what kind you used.

  17. Sophia Greacen says

    Omg Katie!! Finally a cookie recipe featuring ingredients I already have!! I live in Ireland though so it’s never too hot for ovens! Could I use an oven like a regular cookie recipe? I assume it’s a regular dough! Thanks 🙂

  18. Jane says

    I didn’t read the serving size and accidentally made one thick cookie with the entire batch- can’t say I regret it though!

    • mushka fisch says

      If you’re using oat flour it is safe, but indeed if you use regular flour it can contain E coli because it’s not heat treated. A way to get around this though is to just bake your flour for a few minutes in the oven before making the cookie dough
