Brownie in a Mug: A Better Option than Eating Half the Pan!

Have a craving for something chocolate? Maybe a rich chocolate brownie? 

Have a craving for something chocolate? Maybe a rich chocolate brownie? Worried you will cave in and eat the whole pan? Never fear! Try this Brownie in a Mug for One!However you know if you make a whole pan you will eat more than you should? Like half the pan? Eeek!

Never fear! I have discovered a brownie that is cleaned up, cooks in less than 2 minutes and oh so rich! Can it get better? Yes! instead of white processed flour I used organic oat flour along with organic safflower oil, grass fed butter, organic brown sugar, rich chocolate chips and  organic cocoa powder! And let’s not forget a touch of vanilla! 

You mix it all in a mug and pop it in the microwave for less than 1 1/2 minutes!  So it minimizes the dishes to clean up.

You could eat it all yourself but I suggest sharing the love as it is super rich. If you dare top it off with a spoon of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!

Due to fats and sugar it is definitely higher in calories than a sugar free, low fat treat…. So feel free to experiment with different sugars and oils to reduce the calorie count. However it is a treat and you won’t be eating half the pan so enjoy! Sometimes it is just what you need!

Let us know what changes you make!

  5. 3 tablespoons brown sugar

Notes
  1. Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use is about 1 cup
  2. Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook. Start with 1 minute and extend the time if needed.
  3. Due to fats and sugar this is definitely higher in calories. Feel free to experiment with different sugars and oils to reduce the calorie count. However it is a treat and you won't be eating half the pan so enjoy!

At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
