Brownie In A Mug Recipe

A single serving brownie in a mug recipe that's perfect for any time you’re craving chocolate.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 mug brownie

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp dutch cocoa, or additional regular
  • 3 tbsp spelt, white, or oat flour (Here’s a Keto Mug Cake Recipe)
  • 2 tbsp sugar, or sub erythritol if desired
  • scant 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt – don’t forget
  • 1 tbsp oil or nut butter (some readers sub applesauce or banana)
  • 3 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Notes: If you want to remove the cake before eating it, be sure to grease the mug before starting. If you can’t find dutch cocoa, subbing additional regular will still work; it will just have less of a brownie flavor. I haven’t tried subbing applesauce or banana for the fat and therefore can’t vouch for the taste of that substitution.
    If baking, preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients in a mug or 1-cup dish (or two 1/2-cup dishes). Either bake around 14 minutes, OR microwave until set. Microwave times will vary depending on wattage and if using one or two dishes – I cooked mine for 1 minute, followed by two 10-second increments.
