To all of my health nuts out there: are you ready for this?

This is by far the fastest, easiest and healthiest mug brownie I have made. This 105 calorie brownie is gluten-free, grain-free, low carb and pure delicious! I constantly have chocolate cravings so I have been on the lookout for an easy way to cut the cravings quick without the guilt. Here it is!!

This mug cake is so moist, chocolatey and full of happiness. Have you ever made a mug brownie before? They are so simple!

INGREDIENTS:

3 Tbsp cocoa powder (I used Trader Joes brand) 

1 egg white

3 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce (Or 1/3 mashed banana)

2 Tbsp vanilla unsweetened almond milk

a pinch of baking powder 

1/4 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)   

2-3 packets of stevia (you can also use a small amount of honey, agave, etc. but I highly recommend using a sweetener!)

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Place all ingredients in a small blender and blend until smooth. (You can also mix by hand but I find this to be too time consuming and messy) 

2. Pour batter in a mug or a small bowl. Make sure it doesn't exceed 3/4 of your bowl otherwise it'll overflow in the microwave. Yikes! 

3. Microwave 1:45-2:30 minutes, depending on your microwave. (My microwave is very strong so I only heat it for 1:45 minutes)

4. Let cool and top with any toppings of your choice. Congratulations, you have now made the best, easiest and quickest dessert ever!
