The problem is, it can sometimes be a struggle to find a recipe that makes just enough to satisfy your cravings, without leaving you with a large batch of cookies to munch through. But luckily this ingenious recipe for a single-serve cookie is here to save you from those cravings! This recipe itself makes quite a large cookie, like the ones that you see in those beautiful cookie stores – the texture is moist with a crisp outside and it makes a cookie that’s rich with a good snap as you break into it.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

By Harriet Smith (


Serves 1


  • 1 tbsp brown rice flour
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp raw coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Ground vanilla (or vanilla pod), to taste (I use Dr. Oetker’s vanilla grinder)
  • Tiny pinch salt
  • 2 squares dark chocolate, cut into 8 chunks – preferably at least 70% cocoa



  1. Add the rice flour, ground almonds, bicarbonate of soda, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and tiny pinch salt into a bowl. Using a fork or small hand whisk, mix the ingredients together until a smooth, moist/sticky dough has formed.
  2. Then, place some baking parchment onto a baking tray. Scoop the dough into the parchment and roughly press it into a circular shape. Then, top with the dark chocolate chunks. Add the cookie into the oven, and cook for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden.
  3. When the cookie has baked, remove from the oven to cool slightly before eating.
