Single Lady Cookies

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!

    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!!

  2. 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

    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! 🙂

    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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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! :))

  11. 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!

  12. Avery Chris says

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

  13. 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)

  14. 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!

  15. 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!


  16. 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 ;).

  17. 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!

  18. Cat says

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

  19. AL says

    I think cookie dough will NOT keep a year in the freezer. That’s too dangerous. I don’t want to harm you all–please, please keep safe and don’t take risks with food safety.

  20. Jenelle says

    I’ve made this at least 20 times. It’s so great for when I want to eat an entire bag of chocolate chips but my conscience kicks in. Sometime I add a tiny bit of almond extract or some small coconut flakes depending on my mood. Thank you for this recipe!

  21. Michelle J Mercure says

    Made this just now! It didn’t make it into the oven, though. I ate the cookie dough and it was soooooo yunny!

  22. Mo says

    I made them according to the recipe and they came out a little too crumbly. Will have to add more milk next time. Maybe a whole tablespoon. Delicious though!

  23. Laura Parker says

    I made this last night and it was absolutely perfect. I will add this to my regular dessert repertoire.
