1 Minute Brownie In a Mug

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Today’s recipe for a 1 minute brownie you can make in a mug. However, I had some cute little dishes I used instead.  I figured it would be hard to see the brownie for the photo buried in the bottom of a mug.  This brownie is very chocolatey to I highly recommend opting for the additional scoop of ice cream.  You don’t need a whole lot of ice cream. But I feel it is in need to counter balance the intense chocolate flavor.

  1. Love it!! doubled the amount with a very tiny pinch of baking powder and added 2 chopped walnut halves. cooked for a min. It was perfect!

  2. I made this as directed (except for adding a splash of vanilla), and it was delicious! A question: have you tried adapting this recipe so that it would make a pan of brownies, and did you get good results? Whatever the case, thanks for sharing!

  3. this was actually tasty 🙂 i used vegetable oil instead of canola though – my chocolate fix for the day 🙂 i also microwaved for 40 seconds

  4. I followed this recipe exactly, and the results were great.
    I used a little dish instead of a mug, because my mugs are very big, plus it would be easier to clean. I am not sure why others had a hard time and poor results. Maybe the wrong type of cocoa, oil, or maybe the microwave time needed to be adjusted, as microwave wattages do differ. Anyway, mine was great with a little vanilla frozen yogurt, and no leftover brownies to tempt me later. Thank you!

  5. I tried this recipe with the exception that I added a small splash of vanilla. It turned out great. I am thinking of trying it again. The brownie was good and even better with ice cream.

  6. I tried this recipe and it was pretty good considering prep time + cook time. I did however use dark brown sugar and used coconut oil in place of any other oil. MIcrowaved for 1:20 minutes and what I got was a spongy-cake-like-muffin-texture. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream compliments it very well. I Will definitely be making this again when my sweet tooth kicks in. I can’t imagine using anything but coconut oil for this recipe. BTW the raw ingredients together were to die for!! Nom…enjoy and thanks for doing the experimenting for me! 🙂

  7. Okay I have just made this and let me tell you it was disgusting. It looks awful and taste like nothing but cocoa powder! In so very sorry but I have tasted better Brusselsprots this is simply awful. I started playing with it like it is clay
