5 Minute Peanut Butter Cookie

Continuing on with my 5 minute cookies, this time I tackled peanut butter. This recipe makes either one large cookie or two smaller ones.

I love how quick and easy these cookies are. I think the best part is that it only makes one individual serving so you don’t have the temptation of a whole entire batch of cookies.

Other 5 minute cookies I’ve made include: chocolate chip, Nutella and pumpkin.

5 Minute Peanut Butter Cookie


1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsp chocolate chips


1. Melt butter for 20 seconds in a small bowl or mug. Add in sugar, egg yolk, peanut butter, nd flour. Mix with a fork until dough comes together. Add in the chocolate chips and mix into the dough.
2. Shape the dough into shape of a cookie. Place on plate lined with parchment paper. Microwave for 50 -55 seconds. Cookie should looked cooked but may still be delicate/falls apart easily. Let cookie cool and firm up before eating. This makes one large cookie or you can split dough in half and make two smaller cookies. Microwave each separately, for about 35-40 seconds.

  1. Um, I tried this, but I don’t know if I added too much of one ingredient or too little of another or maybe because my microwave was on full power, my cookies turned a bit… rubbery… =_____=

  2. what kind of flour did you used?

  3. Can i use whole wheat pastry flour?
