  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce or mashed banana, pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon unsulphured molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats certified gluten free, if required
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain or oat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon gingerbread spice mix
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate chips or golden raisins or a mix of both


  1. Place the butter in a large mug and microwave until melted (about 30 seconds).
  2. Add the brown sugar, apple sauce (or mashed banana or pumpkin puree), unsulphured molasses, and vanilla extract to the mug and stir with a fork or small whisk to combine.
  3. Now add the dry ingredients of old fashioned rolled oats, whole wheat or oat flour, gingerbread spice mix and sea salt and mix in. Once incorporated add in chocolate chips and/or raisins.
  4. Using a small spatula, clean the sides of the mug and make sure the cookie dough is only at the bottom of the mug.
  5. Microwave the cookie for about 1 minute. Since microwaves vary in strength, start checking around 50 seconds and add 10 second bursts as needed.
  6. This gingerbread oatmeal mug cookie is best enjoyed while warm.
