This super simple chocolate single serve vegan cookie takes less than 5 minutes to make and cooks in less than 1 minute! Quickly make the cookie dough, mould it into a round shape and microwave.
Considering how easy the process is, the cookie tastes unbelievably delicious. It's very soft and slightly chewy slightly just like a good double chocolate cookie should be and it's topped with melty vegan chocolate chips too which make this treat even more attractive.
Sometimes it's the most basic recipes which are the most comforting. This one certainly fits into that category. You're going to be in disbelief of how delicious this cookie is, once you try it.
Why You Will Love This Cookie
- Small Ingredient Amounts - There are 8 ingredients which go into making this chocolate cookie recipe but the great thing is, that you only need a tiny amount of each. This is also the case for recipes such as, my vegan pan fried caramelized bananas. In fact, 2 Tablespoons is the most that you'll need of any of the ingredients, making this recipe difficult to get wrong.
- Quick & Easy - The process for making the cookies only takes a total of 5 minutes, so when you're in desperate need of a sweet treat this could be the one that you need in your life. Another quick snack that you should try is my vegan chocolate mug cake.
- Delicious Texture - Although, this single serve cookie only cooks for 1 minute, the texture is fantastic. It's fudgy, soft and an all-round tasty option. Somewhere in between a chocolate cookie and chocolate cookie dough, you will adore it.
- Allergy Friendly & Plant Based - This vegan single serve double chocolate chip cookie recipe is fully vegan and dairy free.
- Peanut butter - Not only does the peanut butter help to thicken the chocolate cookie dough, but it also gives the taste an uplift. The fusion between the chocolate and peanut butter is delectable. I advise that smooth peanut butter for this recipe.
- Light brown soft sugar - I love to use light brown soft sugar for the cookie as makes it extra soft in comparison to other kinds of sugar that I've used. Even for cookie recipes that yield much more like the vegan oreo chocolate chip cookies and vegan twix cookies use this 'gem' of an ingredient.
- Cocoa powder - I chose to use regular cocoa powder and it gave the cookie a nice chocolatey taste. If you prefer your chocolate desserts to be on the richer side, you can use a higher quality cocoa powder instead.
- Soy milk - Adding even just a little too much soy milk to the cookie dough can change the texture considerably so be vigilant when adding it.
- Vegan chocolate chips - These are used solely for the topping. They make a nice addition to the recipe and they also go all melty on top too which is definitely my favorite part.

Substitutions & Variations
- I used dark dairy-free chocolate chips for this recipe successfully but if these aren't your ideal preference, you can add dairy-free white chocolate chips or dairy-free milk chocolate chips on top instead. Both of these make a nice change as the majority of vegan chocolate chips are dark. See my vegan triple chocolate cookies which use more than one type of chocolate chip.
- I recommend the use of soy milk for the cookie as that was the plant milk that I tested the recipe with, but if you have an allergy to soy or you simply don't like it, you can try using other plant milks. Although I haven't tested other kinds, I'd imagine that almond milk and oat milk would work well.
How To Make A Single Serve Chocolate Cookie
For the full method, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
1: Mix together the wet ingredients, excluding the soy milk.
2: Add in the dry cookie dough ingredients and the soy milk.
3: Form a cookie shape on a square of parchment paper. Place it onto a small plate and cook in the microwave.
4: Serve warm and enjoy.
Don't over-cook the cookie - Be aware of how long the single serve vegan cookie has been in the microwave. If it stays in for too long the chocolate cookie will harden and become very unappetising. Be as attentive to the timings as possible so that your cookie doesn't become ruined.
Make sure that the cookie is flat enough - When spreading the cookie onto the parchment paper, make sure that it is as flat as an ordinary cookie and not too thick. If the cookie is too thick when it goes into the microwave, it will require more cooking time and as a result it will come out under-cooked.
Keep a close eye on single serve cookies while they're cooking in the microwave and check on them several times if necessary. They shouldn't burn if you follow the recommended timings properly.
Yes! Even though this recipe only yields one single serve cookie, you can simply double or triple the recipe amounts to make more.
I recommend that you eat this cookie as soon as it's cooked as it will taste fresher. Remember that this is a microwave cookie and not a traditional baked type. If you intend to eat it later on the same day, you can cover with plastic wrap on a small plate at room temperature.
