Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Mug Cake {cooks in 1 minute!}

I recently came across a recipe for a chocolate chip mug cookie. I didn’t just come across it, I suppose. I also made that mug-o-cookie and ate it too. Yum-o. Both gluten and dairy free, and it took less than five minutes from start to finish and was on its way to my tummy.

This is that recipe doubled, essentially. The mug cookie uses 1 egg yolk. When I doubled the recipe, instead of using 2 egg yolks to make a double cookie, I used 1 whole egg. The added egg white causes there to be more rising in the batter and makes more of a cake texture, rather than a cookie…hence why this post is for a chocolate chip cake and not cookie. If you’d like more of a cookie consistency, use two egg yolks in replace of the 1 whole egg.

You will want to use a good sized cereal bowl or jumbo mug to cook this in. It makes a great dessert to split with a loved one. Or have all for yourself if you happen to be in that kind of mood. Enjoy!
