Microwave Brownie In A Mug

Microwave Brownie In A Mug

Serves 1 10 minute prep time

Grab a mug, a cozy blanket, warm slippers and curl up on the sofa for some Netflix to chill with this oh-so chocolate-y microwave brownie in a mug. This is one of the more popular recipes at Vega HQ and for a good reason.  Who can say no to a mug full of chocolate goodness when that night time hunger starts. Dessert starts now with this easy eggless brownie recipe in the microwave! Did we mention it’s gluten free too?

We love topping this dessert off with simple homemade banana ice cream and coconut whipped cream!

  • Add more liquid for a brownie batter texture
