An easy treat that you can make when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t feel like making a big batch of cookies. This single serving chocolate chip cookie also happens to be vegan and gluten-free!

This recipe is great if you’re living alone, or with someone who doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. The last thing you want to do is make a big batch of cookies only for them to end up being wasted or you feeling like you have to eat them all before they go off.

It’s also a great recipe for young couples who don’t have a family and many mouths to feed. You can double the recipe and make one for you and your other half.

This recipe was adapted from these chocolate chip cookies, which I made years ago! So if you feel like making a big batch, you can find the full recipe here.
