Even though I finally started working out again this morning, I felt the need to indulge in sweets. The girls were acting bananas yesterday, and I think Juli has hit a growth spurt, so things have been rough around these parts. I’ve really been craving a brownie in a mug, so I decided to finally make it happen. I love this recipe because it’s quick, easy, and damn delicious!
I’ve shared this microwave brownie recipe before, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to do it again. Especially since now I can take spiffy pictures and include a spiffy recipe card in my post. 😉
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- 4 tablespoons Sugar
- 4 tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
- 2 tablespoons Water
- 1 dash Salt
Place the butter in the mug and microwave until melted, approximately 30 seconds
Add the rest of the ingredients to the mug and stir well to combine.
Microwave for approximately 75 seconds, or until cooked.
Depending on the day, sometimes a scoop of ice cream on top is warranted. Today was one of those days.
I know I’m trying to eat healthier (there was plenty of kale in my shopping carting cart today), but every once in a while, I’m going to cheat. Plus, my bootcamp instructor said we should try to cut back, instead of completely quitting. So, instead of two brownies in a mug, I’ll only have one today.
