Gotta keep that girlish figure, right? ;-)
Allow me to introduce you to a dessert that will revolutionize those sweet cravings! Reader, meet Microwave Mug Brownies. Microwave Mug Brownies, meet Reader. All right, now that we've got introductions out of the way, you're ready for the recipe!
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp. sugar*
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. canola oil
2 Tbsp. water (or more, if it's too dry)
Mix all ingredients together in a microwave-safe mug. Try not to eat all the batter before it makes it to the microwave! Nuke for 1-3 minutes (depending on how fudgy you want your brownie).
*The original recipe calls for 1/4 cup of sugar, but even I can't voluntary eat that much in one sitting. It seems to be fine with half the sugar.
You can also add chocolate chips for extra chocolatey goodness.
Last time, in a half-hearted effort to redeem this nutritionless dessert, I used half whole wheat flour. My husband actually liked it better that way! Feel free to experiment with the recipe.
