Recipe for One Chocolate Chip Cookie


I kid you not when I say, for me, this recipe is EPIC! How many times do I sit around craving a chocolate chip cookie but I’m too lazy for the time and patience to make make a whole batch, plus I never want to clean up all the mess. This recipe only takes about 5 minutes prep, a few prep tools, and a quick bake in the oven and you’ve got yourself an unbelievably delicious chocolate chip cookie! We are talking just the right amount of crisp to the edges, a perfectly soft, moist and chewy center and it’s laden with a generous amount of dark chocolate chips. Just the way a chocolate chip cookie was meant to be but in this simplified single (or double) serving form (I list it as double serving, but we all know we’re going to eat the whole thing ourselves, right?).

The other reason this recipe is so awesome for me is because how many times do I want a quick dessert to take to someone? Again no full batch of cookies here. This is the perfect pick me up or a simplified thank you for that someone and they’ll never have to know how easy it was to make.

I know the egg part of this recipe is annoying, 1 Tbsp, gotta save or toss the rest. But it’s worth that little bit of extra effort. 1 whole egg would be way too much and I tried alternate methods like other recipes that use water. Not a fan, it tasted like flour with chocolate chips mixed in and had just an off texture. I’m thinking the little bit of egg is a must, then the following morning you can just add the remainder to scrambled eggs (mashed avocado, scrambled egg and sliced tomatoes on toast, oh yes!).


This is one of my favorite recipes I’ve posted to this day, and one of the most dangerous for that matter. I can totally picture myself at midnight unable to stop thinking about chocolate chip cookies, then I’m going to remember this recipe. How will I resist?

Try this, you’ll see what I mean :). Enjoy!

Recipe for One Big Chocolate Chip Cookie

5 from 11 votes

Yield: 2 servings, one 7-inch cookie

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp salted butter
  • 3 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips , divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl. Heat in microwave until nearly melted (you want it almost all the way melted, remove from microwave just before completely melted and stir to fully melt. You just don't want it too hot or it will cook the egg and melt the chocolate chips when stirring).
  2. To melted butter, add brown sugar, salt, 1 tbsp egg, the vanilla, flour and baking soda. Stir with a spoon until well combined, about 20 - 30 seconds. Mix in 3 tablespoons of the chocolate chips. Shape dough into a 3 1/2-inch disk on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet, gently press remaining 1 Tbsp chocolate chips randomly over top and sides of cookie. Bake in preheated oven 12 - 14 minutes, until cookie is golden. Serve warm or allow to cool on a wire rack then store in an airtight container.
  3. *To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp. Reserve remainder for another use (aka tomorrows breakfast).

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks: I love this one! And you tried getting around the egg issue, too, but using water ‘tasted like flour with chocolate chips mixed in and had just an off texture’ = yes, I totally agree. I’ve tried that myself and just accepting the partial egg situation is best so the cookies taste best, right! Love the soft, gooey centers, mmm! June 17, 2014 at 4:25pm Reply

    • Njane: I use egg whites for dietary reasons and used 1tbsp egg white+a drop of oil. Came out just fine and if you use egg whites often and have a carton sitting around it’s nice and easy. February 22, 2015 at 6:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That’s usually what I like to do just because it seems to yield the most tender results, usually I just place them in the crock pot on low with chicken broth for about 6 hours. In a rush, I will boil it in water with salt, but I trim the breasts in half through the thickness first. I also love it grilled of course too. June 19, 2014 at 11:17pm Reply

  • Laura: Can you check the amount of flour? This didn’t turn out right and I made it twice. Too cake-like. June 19, 2014 at 5:46pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That’s strange it came out cake-like, sorry that happened! Just be careful not to pack the flour when measuring and not to over-mix the batter (just blend until you feel it’s fully combined), and also and don’t over-whisk the eggs (which could add air and fluffiness). It could also just be the amount of protein in the flour you’re using so you may want to go down to 1/4 cup since you’ve had problems with it, you could even add in another 1/8 tsp baking soda for more spread. Hope those suggestions help! June 22, 2014 at 10:10pm Reply

    • Rose: Hi! I know this is a long time to respond but I had this issue with basically all cookies I tried to make, and realized it was from using margarine or ready spread instead of real butter! Maybe that contributed to the cake-like texture!

      Have a good one! February 4, 2015 at 9:36pm Reply

    • Kristina: Laura, I followed the directions and ended up with batter that was way too runny. In an attempt not to waste all of the ingredients I had already put into the bowl, I added more flour. What I ended up with was a muffin-batter-like cookie blob. I put it into the oven and the result resembled a chocolate chip muffin and tasted of flour. It was edible, but definitely not great. Yuck. Will not be making again. February 6, 2017 at 8:34pm Reply

  • Alyssa {Cake, Crust, and Sugar Dust}: I agree, lots of other one cookie recipes omit egg, and that just doesn’t make a normal cookie! I’m sure I could think of plenty of things to do with the remaining egg. This actually looks like a single serving cookie I’d crave! Not one that I’d settle for :) June 19, 2014 at 11:11pm Reply

  • Avra-Sha Faohla: This is perfect for me! Having an obsession with trying out new baking recipes, I have no interest in making big batches that last for a while. I like small, small batches that get finished the day they’re made so that I can make new stuff the next day! Anyway, I’m always dividing recipes, so using only part of an egg in a recipe is completely normal for me. This recipe’s great; it’s easy, it comes out beautiful and delicious, and there’s no fussing with refrigeration. I love that it uses a liquid fat. ;) June 24, 2014 at 9:04pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes I think that should be just fine, but I might reduce the flour to 1/4 cup just because if you put the dough in when it’s chilled from the refrigerator (I’d thaw when frozen) it will spread less, so reducing the flour should make it about even. Hope that makes sense and I hope you love it Shirley! June 27, 2014 at 1:05pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: They might work fine I just can’t say for sure since I haven’t tried yet. Since it’s a small amount, even though they’re usually made from primarily whites that should be fine since it doesn’t need much. I’d say it’s worth a try since it’s such an easy recipe.

Sometimes they’re flat, sometimes they’re puffy, sometimes they have more of a cake consistency than a cookie. They’re all good—they’re just all different.

  • Jacinta: So, I have never commented on a recipe before. However, I did want to comment on his one. I was sitting here desperate for just a few M&M cookies. I was looking up recipe after recipe and I was constantly being disappointed! I found one that seemed simple enough, but I would have a whole 2 dozen cookies just sitting around and I’d be forced to just eat them all! Then, I stumbled across this recipe for ONE giant chocolate chip cookie. I almost fell out on the ground! I’m all about single serving baking! I’ve become a HUGE fan of mug cakes for that reason, but I wanted a cookie! So I made this recipe and instead of chocolate chips, used my pack of M&Ms and I feel so happy and fulfilled!

        I doubled the recipe and made three big cookies. And the best part was I was able to start and finish AND eat this all while my son was still napping! That is what makes baking hard for me, is dealing with my one year old wanting to follow me into the kitchen and touch everything and demand my attention. So this quick recipe made me very happy!

    • Jaclyn: You’d want to multiply the recipe by 3 or 4 if using a whole egg, there is generally 3 1/2 Tbsp in one egg. November 5, 2015 at 6:32pm Reply

  • gina: I made 4 of these this weekend for my family. They were SO delish. Thank you for sharing this recipe! November 20, 2015 at 1:31pm Reply

  • Aziza: Hi Jaclyn,

    I’m not sure what I did wrong, but when I tried to make this cookie the dough for it was really crumbly and not as smooth as yours was. I tried baking it and it is a crumbly and bumpy looking mess. Any suggestions? January 12, 2016 at 7:04pm Reply

  • Meaghan: This is absolutely delicious!! I made this for my dads birthday, and put his initials in chocolate chips on top. Wonderful! :-) February 9, 2016 at 8:27am Reply

  • Meaghan: Can i make a few (maybe five) mini cookies with this? February 9, 2016 at 8:29am Reply

  • Sara: Best cookie ever! I’ve made this big guy twice now! I may wish I hadn’t found this recipe. lol Perfect! Thank you so much! February 26, 2016 at 12:31pm Reply

  • windella: This is perfect for when I want to be “sorta good”!I wanted something sweet but not a whole batch of cookies,when I googled,one of the many recipes that popped up was yours,I loved the title,exactly what I was looking for.I was still naughty,I doubled the recipe(I have no self control) DELICIOUS cookie! Came out just right! I still made 6 cookies but not as bad as 2 dozen.I’ll need to take baby steps,next time and there will be a next time,I’ll make one recipe. I love using only brown sugar,nice flavor! April 17, 2016 at 12:02am Reply

  • sim: Hi Jaclyn,
    When I baked the cookie, it didn’t spread out as much as it was supposed to. It ended up being pretty thick and kind of doughy. The second time I made one, I used more butter but that didn’t seem to help. Do you have any suggestions? April 24, 2016 at 6:14pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Less flour would probably help then it should spread more. April 25, 2016 at 12:12am Reply

  • Theresa Wade: So perfect! I used this recipe to make each of our kids’ teachers a giant cookie for teacher appreciation day. We made one extra one so we could taste test it and it was amazing! Great recipe! May 2, 2016 at 7:35pm Reply

  • Steph: Seriously this cookie is absolutely amazing. I love the giant size cookie. I just need to figured out how to make a dozen now! June 3, 2016 at 8:23pm Reply

  • leena kothari: I am vegetation, so can’t use egg.please let me know , how to make Eggless cookies June 4, 2016 at 11:32am Reply

    • Harper: Banana is what I use as an egg substitute, it just becomes a weird sort of texture but still tastes delicious! July 5, 2016 at 5:57pm Reply

    • Simone: You could also try a flax egg, this works for me in baking as an egg substitute. Take 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds and 3 tablespoons water, stir gently and then let it sit for 5-7 minutes. Will become a runny, egg-like consistency. When you bake, it gives similar results to real eggs. Good luck! July 10, 2016 at 4:10pm Reply

  • Shruti: Thank you for the recipe !! The cookies came out really well! Very happy with the result !
    I made 4 cookies out of them, and ate most of them 😁 June 8, 2016 at 1:16am Reply

  • Marwa K.: To substitute the egg I used 1 tbsp of milk. It came out great! July 10, 2016 at 8:43am Reply

  • REBECCA: So delicious. I’ve made these twice following directions exactly. Turned outo great both times … I cut the cookie into 4 even servings … perfect. I haven’t read each and every thread above, though I’ve read many…but didn’t see if anyone calculated calories. Anybody know? 😊 August 9, 2016 at 10:33pm Reply

  • Navia: Oh my goodness thank you for this recipe! Whenever my husband and I need something sweet (always) I just pull this up and double it :) August 13, 2016 at 8:46pm Reply

  • LouAnn Livengood: I LOVE(!) this recipe!!! I don’t like making a full batch when I get the craving for a chocolate chip cookie so this is perfect!! I use egg beaters & the Splenda blend brown sugar & it always turns out sooo yummy!!!!! August 19, 2016 at 12:52pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks LouAnn! August 25, 2016 at 2:10pm Reply

  • Tamera: Thank you thank you thank you sooooo much for this. I work in a childrens art center and we do have our cooking days. So finding recipes that are easy to divide so each child can do his/her own thing is difficult. This is perfect for them and easy on me!!! August 24, 2016 at 8:12am Reply

    • Jaclyn: So glad it will work for you Tamera! Good luck! August 25, 2016 at 12:52pm Reply

      • Tamera: It worked out perfectly…i was able to measure out the dry ingredients and put them into individual zipper bags…the kids enjoyed adding the wet ingredients and mixing…thank you again!! August 27, 2016 at 6:41am Reply

  • Krystal: I converted this recipe to grams and used a bowl, spoon and a scale. Not only was it a cookie for one, it was also dishes for one. September 5, 2016 at 11:12am Reply

  • Sue: This is, by far, the best single recipe for one chocolate chip cookie. Please post the recipe for an entire batch. WONDERFUL flavor. October 17, 2016 at 2:03pm Reply

  • Morgan: i just made this recipe. haven’t eaten it yet, but my cookie came out nothing like this. it barely spread and is just thick. November 6, 2016 at 7:21pm Reply

  • Darlene: The only one down fall of this cookie it is easy to make. Since I found the recipe I have made it so many times. It is so good. I don’t need 25 cookies one is fine. Really it’s like 2. January 27, 2017 at 1:20pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes! Me too! I’ve made it way too many times. :) January 31, 2017 at 10:29am Reply

  • Lisa B: Hi! I made this the other day and it was AMAZING! I live in Quito, Ecuador and the recipe worked at about 9,000 ft above sea level. Do you have this as a full recipe? (like with 1 full egg?) I’d love it if you do! Thanks! Lisa February 1, 2017 at 5:01pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m glad it worked well for you Lisa! For a larger recipe I’d just do 4 times the amounts so 1 whole egg and 1 1/3 cups flour and so forth. February 1, 2017 at 5:24pm Reply

      • Lisa B: Thank you! I plan to make them next weekend for a friend’s party! February 3, 2017 at 3:11pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m so glad it worked for you! May 2, 2017 at 10:40am Reply

  • Vanessa: I’ve made this twice and the consistency is off somewhere. I end up with more of a muffin too than a cookie. What am I doing wrong?! Definitely not getting the Ooey gooey cookie I want. I mean muffin tops are all fine and good but still. May 23, 2017 at 6:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: It sounds like there’s too much flour being added so I’d either reduce the flour or add a little more butter. Hope that helps! May 25, 2017 at 10:55am Reply

  • Sarah: I have made this cookie three times so far; once as a trial, once for a crush; and once for a few hungry family members. As someone who gets random spurts of baking frenzy, this was definitely the perfect recipe for me. I loved everything about it. I forgot about my crush’s birthday and whipped this up the day before. He absolutely loved it. However, the cookie ended up bigger than I expected – not that I’m complaining. It is the size of a saucer. Thank you so much for this recipe! June 28, 2017 at 3:06pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You’re welcome! Thanks for the great review! July 11, 2017 at 2:14pm Reply

  • Taylor: Not sure what I did wrong. Followed the recipe exactly and ended up with an extremely runny mixture. Tried adding a little more flour and that didn’t work. July 18, 2017 at 4:02pm Reply

  • Shannon: I’ve made this recipe a half dozen times since I discovered it last month. Even though this makes a huge cookie, I typically double it so my husband gets one too (or half of one if I’m PMSing lol). Thanks so much. It’s perfect. August 4, 2017 at 5:11pm Reply

  • Sara: A flax egg worked for me! So, mix about a tablespoon each of ground flax and water, then use however much of that. October 8, 2017 at 10:09pm Reply

    • Sara: Full disclosure: I added three tablespoons of flour. And didn’t have quite enough butter so used a splash of vegetable oil as well. So basically…..ymmv with the flax egg. October 8, 2017 at 10:11pm Reply

  • Stephanie Baker-Thomas: I just made this and it turned out great! Totally delicious! It took a bit longer to cook, about 18 minutes. :) November 14, 2017 at 8:25pm Reply

  • kitti steiner: i did a baking project with 25 young adult handicapped people today. i used a regular recipe and broke it down so that there could be participation in the process. it went very well, but not all of the attendees were interested in participating in the measuring and adding of ingredients. while we were baking, my helpers (one of them my daughter) wished there could have been a recipe to make one cookie that we could put together so that each attendee could participate in their own fashion. i am going to try this next time i do this. how brilliant you are. i would imagine that i could use liquid egg? or well beat a dozen eggs myself and allow the participants to measure out a tablespoon on their own? December 28, 2017 at 5:40pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: How fun! I’m guessing the liquid egg would work fine but even better would be to whisk up the eggs well yourself (you’ll get about 3 1/2 Tbsp per egg) and like you say they could each take 1 Tbsp. Hope everyone has fun making them :)! December 31, 2017 at 11:35pm Reply

      • kitti steiner: thank you. i will keep in mind that one egg gives about 3.5 tbsp when well beaten. i’m guessing a dozen well beaten eggs would make a great many cookie recipes January 1, 2018 at 7:23am Reply

  • Jessica: So I’ve made this cookie a million times and it tastes better than an entire batch of cookies. The ingredient proportions are spot on making this one of the best cookies I’ve ever had. I’ve even substituted chocolate chips for Heath Bar pieces, Reece’s Pieces. I’ve also ommited the chips and added about a tablespoon of peanut butter , and once again turned out to be the best PB cookie I’ve ever had. I love this recipe because it allows for a little bit of creativity also. January 3, 2018 at 11:31am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I need one of each now! :) January 4, 2018 at 12:47pm Reply

  • Raufikat: Hi, I came across this recipe looking for a single serve cookie for my toddler. It tasted very good but it was puffy and cakey. What could have happened? TIA! January 6, 2018 at 4:57pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’d recommend trying it with a little less flour or another tablespoon of butter that way it should spread and thin out more. Hope that helps! January 6, 2018 at 11:16pm Reply

  • Raufikat: Thank you Jaclyn, I will try and let you know! January 7, 2018 at 11:39am Reply

  • Arlene A Slobecheski: I have been looking for a recipe like this as I have one for a single giant PB choco chip cookie. I looked all over for an Oatmeal Cookie for 1 and found this to share.
    Jumbo Cinnamon Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie
    Yield: 1 jumbo cookie (or 4 small ones)Prep Time: 5 minutesCook Time: 14 minutes
    Sweet jumbo oatmeal cookie…for one!

    2 Tbs. packed brown sugar
    2 Tbs. beaten egg
    1/4 tsp. vanilla
    4 Tbs. flour
    4 Tbs. old-fashioned oats
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. kosher salt
    1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
    2 Tbs. butterscotch chips
    2 Tbs. cinnamon chips

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.

    In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the butter and sugars together until creamed. Add the egg and vanilla and mix.

    Stir in flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir until fully incorporated. Add in butterscotch chips and cinnamon chips and stir.

    Place the dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, until the edges are browned.
