Gluten Free Mug Brownies

I've been hearing about microwave mug brownies for a while now, but for some reason didn't think they'd be any good.  I mean how good could a brownie cooked in a microwave oven be? Right?  Well, pretty darn good actually:)  Especially when you top your piping-hot mug brownie with a couple scoops of ice cream and a dollop of whip cream!

This recipe couldn't be easier.  Not only is it gluten free, it's egg-free as well.  Depending on your microwave, you may need to cook your mug brownie a little bit longer, or a little bit less.  I suggest you experiment a bit.

This recipe is a perfect way to quickly appease your chocolate cravings. It produces very little mess, and allows you to enjoy warm, gooey brownies without needing to start up your oven.  Enjoy!!!

Brownie Ingredients
  • 1-2 tblsp vegetable oil 
  • 2 tblsp water
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of instant coffee
  • 3 tblsp sugar
  • 2 tblsp unsweetened cocoa 
  • 2 tblsp gluten free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • Ice cream/whipped cream to top (optional)

  1. Combine the oil, water, vanilla extract, salt and instant coffee in a mug.  Whisk together till blended.
  2. Add the sugar and whisk till blended.
  3. Add the cocoa and whisk till blended. 
  4. Add the gluten free flour and whisk till blended
  5. Pop into the microwave for 90 seconds on high.
  6. Top your hot, gooey mug brownie with ice cream or whip cream and go to town!!
