Fancy satisfying your palate in no time, try these 2 Minute Eggless Microwave Brownie in a Mug and you will end up craving over and over again.
Come New Year, we have decided to adapt to healthy living for the better life. Is there any necessity for over indulgence every day? It is necessary, we make wise positive choices in our meals along with minimal exercise to keep ourselves fit, rather than obese. For a while, the low carb diet has been in the air and we have been hearing about it from near and dear very often. When we heard it for the first time, it sounded totally irrelevant. Next to impossible! But after our Amsterdam trip, we have been totally impressed by the results and its effect on the size and waistline. I could not have imagined reducing a tsp of sugar from my Morning dose of warm drink .. And definitely not without a digestive!!! But Inspirational stories are eye openers.
Our friends at Amsterdam were a classic example who took this strict regime as a challenge. The Husband referred as B was 80+ kilo’s and definitely had lost definition in his body. About 6 Month’s back, B and his wifey ( referred as A) decided to follow a Low Carbohydrate diet for 3 months with a little routine walking … Aftermath, it was a radical outcome. B had lost 20+ kilo’s with disciplinary routine set by his wifey in food and exercise !! His food habits had taken a positive stroll after that understanding the good and bad on his health. He had started making wiser choices while handpicking refreshments. We were just taken aback to see the results and often ended up talking about this across our evening – midnight dining table conversations during our visit in Christmas. Amidst all this the naughty little girls would come around asking for their dose of warm Chocolate milk. Reluctantly we wud push ourself to the scullery. We were quite luckily to have a Combinational Oven at their apartment and it would speed up the process, leaving kiddos as Happy Bee’s…
Though we had been blathering about all the goodness and low carb diet, sweet cravings never ended.. Instead of baking the whole tray of brownies/ cakes, we baked some quick Mug ChocolateChip Cookie and Brownie that all of us could dig in one. Sometimes small doses of sugary goodness are just right for a wholesome treat !!
I have made these 2 Minute Mug Brownie & Cookie ditto in different Cup Sizes. And the result has been fab both the times. I would recommend using a wider Mug for your treat. Hold on.. if you are looking a Mug Chocolate Chip cookie Recipe, stay tuned!!
We had Kiddo’s at home when I made this recipe yet again, and they were motivated to finish their main course quickly.

2 MINUTES CHOCOLATE BROWNIE IN A MUG RECIPE BELOW
Recipe for Eggless Chocolate Brownie in mug that takes just about 2 minutes to cook in a microwave.
- 2 Tbsp Butter melted
- 2 Tbsp Water
- 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 4 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
- 4 Tbsp Plain Flour
- 1/4 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
- Small Pinch of Salt
The whole idea is to prepare the Brownie in a mug. So add the butter in the mug. Heat it in a microwave for approx. 45 seconds. The butter would melt. Make sure it doesn't boil.
Add Water, Vanilla extract and salt to the melted butter and mix well until well combined.
Now add the dry ingredients one by one whisking well in between each addition - Cocoa Powder, Granulated Sugar and then the Plain Flour.
Cook in a microwave for 60 - 90 sec. Check if it's done at 40 seconds. Centre should be slightly molten at about 60 sec. Do not overcook. If you would enjoy a uniform brownie like I did, cook it for another 10 seconds. Serve hot along with a dollop of vanilla Icecream
