Recipe – “Skinny&Speedy” Mug brownie !

* Follow me on instagram : Marrcandela !

Who likes freshly baked, soft and gooey, sweet and chocolatey brownies? Everyone normal!  Who likes making a mess, waiting an hour or having to throw away half a batch? NO ONE !

Lucky for you, today i’m going to be sharing with you one of my prized possessions; my  low calorie, low fat, quick and easy mug brownie recipe! This recipe should really be top secret! Its a one serving recipe and is perfect for a quick sugar craving! With half the calories and fat of a normal brownie, you’ll be satisfied and guiltless!

First lets take a look at what you’ll need to make a personal brownie in just 2 minutes.

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons Flour(can be whole wheat)
4 Tablespoons Splenda or stevia(replaces sugar)
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened/natural Cocoa powder (Note: don’t use cocoa mix or quik, it shouldn’t have any sugar)
2 Tablespoons applesauce (replaces the oil or butter)
2 Tablespoons Water
Dash of salt
Mug
Microwave

Now on to the steps! They are very quick & easy but one must measure ingredients correctly to get the perfect Mug Brownie!

Step 1-Mix: Add the sugar substitute, flour, cocoa and salt to the mug first. Then add the applesauce and water to the dry mix. Make sure there are no clumps

Step 2- Microwave: Microwave on high for about a minute. The mixture should rise but the middle should still be somewhat wet when done.

Step 3- eat,eat,eat: let it cool & dig in! you can add dark chocolate chips or a scoop of low fat yogurt to the top to make it a stunning sundae as well!

This recipe could have been made with oil, sugar and cake mix! Instead, we are using heart healthy ingredients that wont make you feel guilty after enjoying a Mug Brownie! We cut the calories and fat in half and don’t have to feel bad about throwing out the remaining brownies a normal mix would make!

Hope you try out my Skinny&Speedy Mug Brownie and let me know what you think :)

    Sounds yummy. I’m not usually interested in cooking, but a low-cal brownie is definitely worth a try.
    I notice that you use lots of tags. This means that your posts will be excluded from the “tag reader. I think the allowed limit is 12, I’m not sure whether categories count. So people can’t find your posts, unless they already know your blog url.
    When you’re deciding what tags to use, remember that people choose what to search for. I would recommend something popular, maybe food, cooking, recipe?
    Good luck with your blog!

    just made this and it was awesome! could one add a little bit of egg white, baking soda, and baking powder to make it rise more into a cake-like texture?

  9. Delana says:

    The oil version turns out so much better. I think next time I will try one tablespoon olive oil and one tablespoon applesauce.

    I just made mine with Almond flour instead of wheat- still good! And less carbs, more protein!

    Everyone loves what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and exposure!
    Keep up the awesome works guys I’ve included you guys to my own blogroll.

    Don’t have applesauce… How much oil and egg do I replace it with?

  13. LalaJ says:

    Just made this and wow, I like it! I wanted to top it off with Trader Joes Almond Butter but was out so I had some PB2 in my cabinet, it was delicious, killed the sweet craving. Glad I found this :)

  14. There is certainly a great deal
    to learn about this subject.

    I love all of the points you’ve made.

    Didn’t taste too bad. Would probably be better with a dollop of ice cream! I didn’t need to eat all of it to get my chocolate fix though! I made one with regular flour and one with whole wheat flour, the regular flour recipe was definitely better! I put into a recipe calorie counter and it came to 132 calories and 1.5g of total fat.

  16. I am really pleased to read this website posts which includes lots of helpful information, thanks for providing these statistics.

    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I
    was curious about your situation; we have created some nice
    practices and we

    are looking to exchange strategies with other folks, be sure

    to shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  18. Asking questions are actually pleasant thing if you are not
    understanding something completely, but this article presents fastidious understanding even.

    Mine turned out okay, though it was a bit dense and dry; next time I’ll try 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp applesauce and maybe only 3 tbsp whole wheat flour and see how that turns out :)

  1. […] Stir it up until you get a good thick batter consistency, then microwave for a minute and fifteen seconds. Voila!  Warm, rich brownie goodness. If brownies aren’t your thing, replace the Cocoa Powder with some other flavoring ingredient and try it out. My favorite substitute is cinnamon and vanilla extract.  This recipe is based on a recipe I found on candelacouture.com. […]
