A mug can be used for the entire process, reducing cleanup. Mix peanut butter, pure maple syrup, egg yolk, and vanilla essence until fully blended.

Note: Microwave peanut butter and butter together to soften them so they stir easily after being refrigerated.

5

Mix in the gluten-free all-purpose flour and sea salt until a homogeneous dough forms. The mixture will be thin and not like cookie dough—this is normal!

6

Add chocolate chips to the cookie dough or sprinkle them on top. Use the microwave's default high heat setting for 45–60 seconds to set up.

Start with 45 seconds and microwave longer if needed. Wait a minute or two before eating the peanut butter cookie because the mug will be hot!
