I have a killer sweet tooth. When people describe things as "too sweet" or "too rich" I totally can't relate. When the sweet tooth attacks I'll look for anything and that often results in me baking. Inevitably, I eat way way too much of whatever it is that comes out of the oven.
I came across a recipe for a one minute mug brownie and did a little dance in my head. This is PERFECT for those times when you just really need something chocolate but you don't want a bunch of it laying around for future snacking.
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
In a microwave-safe mug, mix above ingredients together to eliminate lumps. Add the following ingredients to mixture:
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp water/coffee/milk...whichever you prefer
Mix together until you have a thick paste. Place in microwave for 60-90 seconds until you have a spongy top and gooey center.
VOILA! A mini-brownie in just a few minutes and no leftovers to torture you later!
Until next time...
