Microwave Oatmeal Cookie is a quick, easy, and healthy cookie made in the microwave. It only serves one, so there’s no need to make extra cookies you don’t need. Add chocolate chips or raisins for a little something extra. Great dorm room recipe.

There are times when I need dessert (which happens pretty often), and I don’t want to turn on the oven or do much work.
While I usually have some sort of dessert hanging around my kitchen since I’m always testing recipes, sometimes I am in the mood for a cookie.
And this is exactly what I love to satisfy that craving…
Microwave Oatmeal Cookie
This oatmeal cookie made in the microwave is perfect for those times!
Plus it takes less than 5 minutes and serve just one, meaning you don’t have to worry about making extra cookies you don’t need.
Oh and it’s 100% whole grain, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and can be gluten-free (see note and be sure to use certified gluten-free ingredients).
The cookie in the picture is made with brown rice flour, but I normally use white whole wheat flour.
I just wanted to double check that the brown rice flour cookie turned out normal 😉Microwave Oatmeal Cookie is a quick and easy cookie made in the #microwave. It only serves one, so there's no need to make extra cookies you don't need.Click To Tweet
I don’t eat microwave oatmeal cookies only for dessert, though!
Like the broiled grapefruit, this cookie is good anytime of the day, especially breakfast. And it has much less sugar than most cereals.
I prefer mine with chocolate chips, but you could certainly use raisins if that’s your thing.
