'Instagram famous' baker Eloise Head has shared her simple recipe for Lindor-stuffed cookies - and you can make them in a mug in less than five minutes.

The 26-year-old, who is the founder of FitWaffle Kitchen, an Instagram page dedicated to decadent desserts that take just a few minutes to prepare, is renowned for developing dishes that are suitable for bakers of all skill levels - even beginners.

In a video uploaded on December 22, the self-taught chef from London - who has 837,000 followers across four Instagram accounts - shows viewers how to make the cookies from butter, sugar, flour, eggs and the iconic Swiss chocolate balls.

Ms Head, who shot to online stardom when a baking craze swept the globe during the first Covid lockdown, describes them as 'warm and gooey' with a 'melt in the mouth centre'.

Ms Head starts by adding one tablespoon of melted butter, caster sugar, light brown sugar and one egg yolk to a mug, mixing until smooth.

Next, she adds flour and salt until just combined before sprinkling a generous handful of chocolate chips into the dough and folding these in.

Finally, Ms Head presses one Lindor ball into the middle of the mixture, folding it gently to cover the chocolate.

She microwaves the mug for one minute on a high heat and serves the warm cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ms Head warns against over-mixing the flour, which causes the cookie to become crumbly rather than gooey.

She says it's also important to use 'level tablespoons' rather than heaped to prevent the mixture drying out.

Photos of the cookies, which have racked up more than 22,200 likes since they were uploaded online, have drawn some delighted responses.

'This looks amazing,' one woman replied.

Others tagged their friends, suggesting they make the treats to pass time as escalating coronavirus restrictions confine millions to their homes once more.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
