Rich, decadent, fudgy and just pure deliciousness. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
Healthy & Simple Ingredients
This recipe is especially special because it’s made with just 6 pantry staple healthy ingredients!
- Drippy Nut Butter: Replaces the oil and gives a lovely fudgy texture. I love using tahini and peanut butter for this but you can use any variety you have on hand. I have also tried doing half nut butter and half apple sauce, the texture is slightly more dense but still delicious!
- Coconut Sugar: Any granulated sugar of choice can be used here. If you prefer a richer, less sweeter brownie reduce by half.
- Dairy Free Milk: No milk? No problem. Substitute with water! A tad less rich but still delicious.
- Oat Flour: I have tested this with all purpose flour, gluten free all purpose flour and spelt flour with success. I have not tried it with almond flour and coconut flour so can’t guarantee it will work.
- Cocoa Powder: Cacao powder can also be used.
- Chocolate Chips: Add it into the batter and more on top!
Aaand if you have some vanilla extract, instant coffee, cinnamon and salt around add those in too! It really compliments the flavour of the chocolate.
How to Make a Brownie in a Mug
- Combine all the wet ingredients into a mug and stir well until combined.
- Add in the oat flour and cocoa powder and stir until there are no more lumps. If you have a little extra time, sifting the flours help with removing any of those pesky lumps of flour. Then, fold in the chocolae chips.
- Into the microwave it goes for 50 seconds. If it looks very undercooked just by looking at it, give it another 10 seconds.
And thats it! An ultra decadent single serving brownie, ready in 1 minute, crazy right?! Don’t forget to top it off with some maldon salt, vanilla ice cream or coconut whip cream for extra yumminess (kinda not optional??).
Texture of Mug Brownies
This brownie is meant to be ultra fudgy but not pudding-y. You should still be able to detect crumbs so it’s not just raw batter. Because there is no egg or egg replacements used, there isn’t any structure so it is best eaten straight out of the mug.
If you prefer a more cake-y brownie, add in 1/8 tsp of baking soda or 1/4 tsp of baking powder. Adding a bit of leavening agent will help rise the brownie just a bit to achieve that texture.
This brownie is best eaten warm (after it’s been cooled for 2 minutes). As it cools, the texture tends to get more pudding like because it continues to steam as it sits in the mug adding more moisture. I also wouldn’t recommend re-microwaving it. If you do want to re-warm it, I suggest putting a damp paper towel over it and nuking it for just 10 seconds.
