Brownie in a Mug: A Better Option than Eating Half the Pan!
By Donna&Danielle on November 1, 2017
Have a craving for something chocolate? Maybe a rich chocolate brownie?
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.
The result is nothing short of chocolate bliss!
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!
Brownie in a Mug
A rich, moist brownie that cooks in less that 1 1/2 minutes! It is cleaned up and serves 1 unless you decide to share! No worry about eating half a pan of brownies!
- 1 tablespoon melted grass fed butter
- 2 tablespoons flavorless oil (canola oil/coconut oil/sunflower oil)
- 4 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons oat flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- pinch of salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tsp dark chocolate chips and a couple to decorate the top after it is cooked
- Add ingredients in the order listed into a microwavable mug (roughly 1 cup)
- Mix well.
- Microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 15 seconds.
- If desired sprinkle a couple chocolate chips on top.
- Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
- Serve warm.
- If desired serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
- Cooking time will vary depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use is about 1 cup
- 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.
- 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!
