We’ve compiled some of the best one-cup dessert recipes for you to try when your sweet tooth kicks in.

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon water

Chocolate chip cookie.

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • Melt the butter, add sugars and stir. Add egg and vanilla, whisk. Add the flour and baking powder, and stir. Add chocolate chips, then microwave for 1-2 minutes until the toothpick comes out clean.

Apple crisp for one.

  • 1 small apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup oats
