Being a college student, I know all the trials and tribulations of trying to bake at school. Some schools have limited kitchen access. Some schools, like my own, have ancient kitchens that are hard to use and often crowded. But on a college campus, microwaves are everywhere. Here are five awesome recipes that use microwaves instead of ovens.
Seriously, nothing beats a good ol’ chocolate chip cookie. (If you can nick milk from the cafeteria, that makes it even better.) This recipe is quick and easy, leaving you less time baking, and more time eating those straight-from-the-oven…er, microwave cookies.
The simplest of cookies, these microwavable treats can be dyed, shaped, and decorated to your heart’s desire, making them perfect for any occasion.
Though these cookies are more complicated, they’re still delicious — and low in calories! Which is great for anybody trying to beat the freshman fifteen.
This recipe is very healthy, but only makes one (large) cookie at a time. Which is great when it’s just you. But when your roommate starts looking hungry…you might have to hand half over.
This itty-bitty cookie takes just 30 seconds to cook, and any recipe can be used. The best part of this trick? If you make a large batch of cookie dough, then freeze it, you can hot, fresh cookies whenever you want without having to mix up new dough or wait for the oven to heat up.
