Low-Fat 5 Minute Skillet-Cookie in a Bowl
September 6, 2011 § 8 Comments
If you cook for only 1 or 2, you know that it’s often hard to bake. You end up with a full batch of treats which just don’t taste the same a few days later when they aren’t fresh. Plus a million bowls, mixing spoons, etc. to wash. What if you could make fresh dessert every day and it only took you 5 minutes? And could be made in one cereal bowl? AND it wasn’t crazy bad for you?
Have you ever had one of those awesome skillet cookies at a restaurant that comes out freshly baked and covered with ice cream? Welcome to the skillet cookie in a bowl. It is basically a result of experimenting by throwing ingredients together until you have something that resembles dough, and then microwaving it. I don’t even think these measurements have to be exact (I’ve made this a lot and this was the first time I’ve measured)- just make sure everything blends together. Perfect size for a 1 or 2 person dessert 🙂 And so easy you can make it every night. Or morning- I wanted another picture of this guy so I just made myself one- for breakfast.
Chocolate chip is a no fail favorite, but you could experiment with different types of cookies. Or, blend cocoa into the mix and make a chocolate cookie. Oh my wheels are turning…Maybe I’ll try a brownie in a bowl next…Here’s me, excited to devour my skillet cookie after our disappointing fantasy football draft.
- 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP flour (we used white whole wheat)
- 1 TBSP sugar (I don’t have a crazy strong sweet tooth, so you may find that you need more)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 TBSP applesauce
- 4 TBSP water
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 2 TBSP chocolate chips (more or less depending on your preference)
