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



  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Transfer to oven or microwave safe bowl (depending on what you do in step 3).
  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.

This is delicious.  I really have no other words about this than DELICIOUS!  Eat this now.  Here are a few other words:  this is a single serving thingy.  If you have a half-hour to kill and want something besides cereal, try this out.  You won’t be disappointed!
