Easy Brownie in a Mug



1/4 cupsugar
  • 1/4 cupflour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 pinchsalt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used coconuti oil)
  • 5 tablespoonswater
  • Directions:

    1. Add all of dry ingredients to mug.
    2. Mix well with a fork or small whisk until blended.
    3. Add oil and water.
    4. Mix well (add mix-ins if using).
    5. Put in the microwave and cook on high heat for 1 minute 40 seconds - 2 minutes.
    6. Add toppings or a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!

    Variations:

    I use Whole Wheat Pastry flour to make it a bit nutritious.
    Mounds: add 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips and a sprinkling of sweetened flaked coconut on top of cooked brownie.

    Peanut Butter Swirl: add 1-2 tbsp creamy peanut butter into mix before microwaving, or add 1 tablespoons on top of brownie after its cooked.(I use chunky. Smooth peanut butter doesn't have has much fiber in it compared to chunky)
    I tried Nutella till I noticed
    Berry Jam: top cooked brownie with 1-2 tablespoons melted berry jam (strawberry, raspberry or blackberry is best. Just heat in microwave until melted then pour over brownie).
    S'mores: top cooked brownie with mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs
