Easy Microwave Brownie in a Mug


YOU WILL NEED

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and not hot (melted butter, lightly flavored olive oil or neutral oil like grapeseed also work)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coffee, at room temperature (water or milk — dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg (leave out for extra fudgy brownie, see notes below)
  • Salt, optional

DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour and cocoa powder together over a bowl.
  • In another bowl, whisk the melted coconut oil, brown sugar, coffee, egg, vanilla and a very small pinch of salt together until blended then pour into the bowl with sifted flour and cocoa powder. Whisk until combined then carefully pour into the mug.
  • Clean any drips around the edges of the mug then microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds to 1 minute and 45 seconds. Serve with a sprinkle of salt on top, if you like. Top with your favorite brownie topping — ice cream is always a good choice.
