(Vegan) Easy 3-Minute Brownie In A Mug

I’m gonna start this post by admitting that I already have a recipe for a chocolate brownie in a mug on this blog .
Which begs the question: do we need another one?
The answer is: yes, we do.
Let me tell you why.
First off, there’s no such thing as too many brownies— we can all agree on this one, am I right?
Secondly, this recipe is drastically different from the other one: it’s eggless, dairy-free, nut-free, vegan and not really paleo. But it’s still so very delicious, simple, quick, and easy to make.
So why not?

For those times when you need something rich, fudgy, and chocolatey and you want it immediately, this Easy 3-Minute Brownie in a Mug is the recipe for you.
It is unbelievably simple to make and it will make you dive into a warm brownie in a matter of minutes.
Although this recipe makes one brownie in a mug, it’s definitely enough to serve two adults. It’s very rich and satisfying, and a little goes a long way. However, you’re under no obligation to share it.

The brownie is prepared in the actual mug and I measure out the ingredients using just one tablespoon.
I do not want a bunch of dirty dishes and measuring cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons to make a mug brownie.
However, it is important to measure the ingredients properly. Otherwise it’ll get too cakey or too chewy.

Though this recipe makes one brownie in a mug, I would say that is definitely enough to serve two adults.

4 tablespoons flour (your choice of flour, I used gluten-free flour)
4 tablespoons granulated sweetener of choice (I used coconut sugar)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Drop of vanilla extract


Place flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, and salt in a microwave-safe mug. Stir with a fork to break-up any clumps.
Add wet ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth and there are no visible lumps.
Microwave on high for about 1½ minutes, for a 1000W microwave (less if you’re using a more powerful microwave.)
