Brownies In A Mug – Quick & Simple Dessert

Brownies In A Mug – Quick & Simple Dessert

I’m going to warn you, this information may be detrimental to your diet plan. When I learned I could make brownies in a mug in a matter of minutes from ingredients I already had on hand, it was dangerous for at least a week!

Nonetheless, I HAVE TO share this with you, my friends! It’s too good not to… and let’s face it… life is short… and if a brownie can arrive in my hands in less than a minute we must savor that miracle! 😉

I like to make these brownies in smaller portions… so I can add a scoop on ice cream on top! Haha!

Balance right?!

Here’s what you need to do for your brownies in a mug:

Brownies In A Mug – Quick & Simple Dessert

  • Microwave Safe Mug (or ramekin)
  • 2 Tbsp. Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp. Oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Water
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla
  • OPTIONAL: Ice Cream, chopped nuts, fruit, etc.
  1. Mix ingredients together thoroughly inside the mug.
  2. Microwave for 45 sec – 1 minute (Every microwave will be behave differently so you may have to experiment! There are no raw ingredients in this so I always leave them a bit gooey.)
  3. Double the recipe if you like! The recipe I listed above is a smaller portion because I find it very rich and like to have space for ice cream in my mug! YUM!

These are great for a last-minute craving, quick kid-friendly dessert, or maybe even a fun activity for a party! You could have the brownies ready to go and let your guests decide what toppings to add to their mug!

Make your own brownies in a mug party! Now, that would be my kind of party! Please send me an invite! Haha!

Umm…yum! Warm brownies and cold ice cream are the perfect pair! <3

Well take care! And enjoy those brownies! You deserve a treat! 😉
