Peanut Butter & Nutella Single Serve Mug Cookie 

Remember those Crunchy Peanut Butter & Nutella cookies I shared a few weeks ago? Before those were born, I created this personal-sized baby. It had been a rough day: we'd had tantrums over absolutely everything. Including the fact that we were having tantrums! When Callum finally gave in and collapsed on the sofa in exhaustion from all the shouting and crying and put himself to sleep, I escaped into the kitchen, in need of something indulgent. You know how they say "necessity is the mother of invention?" Yup, totally.

I'll admit it was almost blind fury and desperation--I was just chucking things into my favorite blue mug and stirring like a mad woman. I even forgot to write this recipe down! (It's a good thing I've made it about 2312598 times since!) I whacked it in the microwave and about 5 minutes later (after it cooled) I leaned up against the kitchen counter and dug in, sipping on a cold glass of almond milk between forkfuls.

So when I say this recipe is perfect for when you need a hit of peanut butter and Nutella, you know what I mean. I always need a hit on those screamy, I-am-a-2-year-old-hear-me-roar days. Not that I'm encouraging emotional eating or anything like that, but when do you find yourself in the throes of a problem only the holy union of chocolate and peanut butter can fix?

Peanut Butter & Nutella Single Serve Mug Cookie
  1. Put peanut butter, Nutella and butter in your mug. Pop in the microwave for about 20 seconds to slightly melt.
  2. Add sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Stir well with a spoon.
  3. Stir in the egg yolk.
  4. Stir in the flour once the egg yolk has been fully incorporated.
  5. Microwave on high for about 3 minutes. After the first minute, check for doneness every 30 seconds or so.
  6. Serve with a nice cold glass of almond milk. Or cow's milk. Or soy milk. Or rice milk. Or, on those really bad days, no milk and just wine? I'm not judging.
