Single Serving Peanut Butter Cookie

I’ve been working on a creating a better version of my single serving peanut butter flavored cookie.

I previously made an eggless version. It was thick and rich, but I wanted something that is more crispy and chewy.

Now this is a cookie. This cookie has crispy edges and flattened out while baking, which is what I was looking for. I couldn’t quite get the chewy part, probably because of how thick peanut butter is. Still, this was enjoyable and chock full of peanut butter flavor. I studded the surface with peanut butter chips giving it an extra peanut butter boost.

Like all my other single serving cookies, this comes together super quick. Even though I couldn’t get it to be chewy, I still really liked this and it satisfied my sugar cravings.

  1. Can I do this in a microwave? I don’t have an oven but would love some peanut butter cookies or actually any kind of cookie. 

    • not this recipe. But if you type in “microwave cookie” in the search section near the top of my blog, you’ll find a ton of microwave cookie recipes I’ve done in the past. Here is the link
