{3 Minute Mug Brownie}

Mmmm..... got your attention?
Well, this little delicious creation has had my attention 
every night for the past 3 nights...
I simply cannot get enough of this brownie!

Sometimes, I just need a little chocolate pick-me-up,
but I don't always want to bake a whole batch of brownies.
Because I usually eat the whole pan in a day....
It's no bueno.
But! With this mug brownie,
I have one single serving, 
I get my little chocolate pick-me-up,
and I feel good!

The recipe is super easy (I had it memorized after just using it one time),
and it takes about 1 1/2 minutes to prepare, and 1 1/2 minutes to bake!
Say what? 3 minutes from start to finish? 
Yeah, I know you're liking this already. Ha!

I wish I would have been clever enough to think this up,
but I wasn't. I found the idea here

So, if you try this, let me know what you think!

3 Minute Mug Brownie
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt

Mix all dry ingredients in a microwavable mug.
Mix until there aren't any lumps.
Lumps are no bueno.

Then add:
2 TBSP vegetable or canola oil
2 TBSP milk

Mix until a paste forms.

Cook in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes.
The time may vary because all microwaves cook differently. :)

After it's done cooking, let it sit for awhile.
It's extremely hot, and I don't want your little tongue to get burned!

You can add a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream,
or a spoonful of peanut butter (like I usually do) for some added calories goodness. 


  1. MMMM! I wish my family had a microwave now..... :(

  2. You told me about this and now I'm going to have to go and buy some more cocoa. I just ran out, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow and I'm dying to try it.

  3. Okay, I'm trying this as soon as my tummy feels better! Can't wait!
