Lately, I’ve been craving pumpkin! From Pumpkin Dip to these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, I can’t seem to get enough! And while I love that recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I started thinking about a single serving way to curb a pumpkin craving. Luckily, this recipe worked like a charm!

Why I Love This Recipe

Sometimes I get a craving for a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie but I don’t want to tempt myself with a whole batch of cookies. Or maybe I’m just in the mood for something sweet, but I don’t want to preheat the oven. That’s where this recipe comes in! This is a “mug cake” style cookie which means it cooks in the microwave in just a couple of minutes. Plus, this recipe is vegan!

How to Make a Single Serving Cookie

Mix all the ingredients together, then transfer the mixture to a greased, microwave-safe dish. Microwave on 50% power so you can cook the cookie slowly without risking burning the edges. Microwave times vary so keep a close eye on the cookie!

Recipe Tips

  • I like using mini chocolate chips, so you get a little bit of chocolate in every bite! But you can use any chips you have on hand.
  • To keep this vegan, I used dairy-free chocolate chips. Enjoy Life makes great vegan chips!
  • Be sure to spray the ramekin before adding the dough, so your cookie doesn’t stick to the cup!
  • If you want to add frosting, try a dollop of this vegan tahini buttercream or whip up this coconut frosting recipe.

The Best Container for a Single Serving Cookie

I like to use a microwave-safe ramekin, which is the perfect size for one of these cookies! But if you don’t have a ramekin, you can use a mug or a small microwave-safe glass dish.

Can I double the recipe?

Yes! But I recommend making the cookies in two separate ramekins, rather than making a larger cookie. This will help the cookies “bake” more evenly. If you want to make a whole batch of cookies, try my vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

Can this cookie be made in the oven?

Yes! To make this single-serving pumpkin cookie in the oven, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then bake for 15 minutes or until set. Insert a toothpick in the center and when it comes out clean, it’s ready to enjoy!
