Let me say this: It’s not that this is necessarily a bad recipe, I just failed at it. The original recipe called for microwaving the cookie-goo, but I really wanted that fresh from the oven taste. That maaaay have been a mistake. Also, when combining the ingredients, I just made a crumbly mess and had to add a little more butter to make it work. Feel free to try this in the microwave for 1 minute, but I’m still not sold because of the crumbliness. Let me know if you got it right! I need to learn!
Instead, I would recommend trying out the Oatmeal Breakfast Bake, which is VERY cookie-like. Swap out a few things for other things and I’m pretty sure you’ll get even more of a cookie taste. If I get around to it, I’ll post my attempts to make the breakfast bake a cookie. Until then, let me know if you tried it!!
1 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 3 drops vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- 1 egg yook
- 1/4 cup bread flour
- 2 tbsp chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients.
- Transfer to oven or microwave safe bowl (depending on what you do in step 3).
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 – 25 minutes in oven or toaster oven. -OR- Microwave 40 – 60 seconds.
*So obviously, baking it was my first mistake. After describing my failure to friends at work the next day, their response was “why didn’t you just make a batch of cookies? You did almost the same amount of work and let it bake for longer.” Truth. Next time, I would just try microwaving this.
