Have you ever tried a mug recipe? I know I was a little skeptical about mug recipes. How could they even be good. But after I tried this mug recipe I can really see their appeal.
My mother-in-law sent me this recipe and we gave it a try. I have to say I like the oven baked brownies a little better just because the outer edges get nice and crisp. But this recipe is great to make if you are looking for a brownie fix and only want to wait a few minutes to dig in. Best of all this recipe is dairy free too.
This recipe literally takes only about 3 minutes to make. Just put all the dry ingredients into a mug.
Add the wet ingredients and mix. I have found that a small whisk works really good for this task. Then microwave for about a minute and a half and you have a nice warm delicious brownie to enjoy.
Make a Brownie in a Mug Pantry Mix
You can make this brownie recipe even easier to make by making it into a pantry mix. Just mix the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag and label it. While I’m labeling it I also write the measurements for the water and oil to be added, along with the instructions.
Then when you need a quick brownie fix, just empty the bag into a mug add the oil and water and microwave. This pantry mix would also be great added to a gift basket or sent as part of a care package to someone away at college.

Substitute Water with coffee for a mocha brownie
