Microwave cookies

Attention all biscuit lovers: this peanut butter and chocolate chip recipe is a game-changer. Why? Because in under three minutes, you'll have baked yourself a batch of cookies with perfectly crunchy outsides, and oh-so-deliciously gooey centres - without so much as pre-heating the oven. A quick-fix for sweet cravings and 100% acceptable to send in for the school bake sale (we've even hacked a way of making sure they're all the same size). Microwaves at the ready!

  • 100g butter
  • 225g soft brown sugar
  • 100g peanut butter - smooth or crunchy to your taste
  • 1 egg
  • 175g plain flour
  • pinch baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Take a large mixing bowl and mix together the butter (softened), brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla extract and egg
  2. Add flour, salt and bicarb in stages. Mix - then add chocolate chips. 
  3. Roll into small balls and place on to a microwaveable plate - we did it in batches of four, allowing space for them to expand - and microwave on high for 2.5 minutes. Expect them to cover the whole plate in cookie goodness... 
  4. Grab a tumbler, turn it upside down and use it to cut out evenly-shaped cookies from the cookie dough. Remove the excess (we challenge you not to devour it...) and place the shaped cookies on a wire rack to cool, where they'll firm up. 
  5. Tuck in!
