Here’s a typical scenario from my past couple weeks of gradschoolpocalypse:
It’s a weeknight, about 8 pm, I’m studying or data-entrying away on my couch and my night of work is just beginning. All of sudden, my hankering sweet tooth emerges and I’m craving warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies. Like, I’m salivating at the thought and can no longer concentrate.
While some nights I can be good and fight the urge by reaching for an apple or banana, some nights, I just have to have that satisfaction!
Enter in my next dilemma: I do not have the time nor the energy to whip up an entire batch of cookies. Furthermore, if I made an entire batch of cookies, lord knows I wouldn’t be able to contain myself in my state of stress and then there goes everything I believe in health wise.
THE SOLUTION? SINGLE SERVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! It only makes 3-4 cookies and takes literally 15 minutes to make. I usually eat two to satisfy my craving and save the last one or two for a treat the next day.
Ingredients for Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp. butter (melted) OR (1 tbsp butter + 1 tbsp. applesauce for substitute)
3 tbsp. chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips
Combine all dry ingredients except chocolate chips in a small bowl. Mix in egg yolk and butter until well combined. If batter is too runny, add in 1 tsp. flour. Stir in chocolate chips last!
Drop by the spoonful onto a greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
