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!
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
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!
