Magic Mug Cupcakes {Chocolate chip cookie}

Who doesn't love a fresh chocolate chip cookie? We all have our favorite recipe - there are those that like them soft and cake-like, others that prefer them crispy and crunchy, and, if you're like me, you want your cookie to be thick and chewy.

I had perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe and I was oh so proud of it! Everyone who tasted it asked me for the recipe. It was perfect.

Then I discovered what evil gluten and dairy were doing to me and how much better I felt without them. I had to say goodbye to my beloved recipe for good.

I am still on a quest to recreate my perfectly chewy chocolate chip cookie, but to tide me over I've managed to recreate that same yummy taste in cake form. I personally find the different flours combine to create that very unique cookie taste, but feel free to use what you have on hand.
