Healthy Makeover: Microwaved Mug Brownie

Unfortunately, the mug brownie I shared in a previous post isn’t the healthiest thing. Of course, who would expect a brownie to be healthy, right? Well, for all those health-conscious people out there, I found a healthier recipe with only 100 calories! DANG BRO.

I still haven’t tried this one yet, but it’s definitely worth a shot!

Healthy Mug Brownie


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 1 dash salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 pinch instant coffee (optional)


  1. In a 12 oz. coffee mug, mix water, oil, salt, vanilla, and coffee (if using). Whisk well.
  2. Add cocoa powder and mix well. Add sugar, then mix, and then flour, and mix. Stir until the batter is smooth.
  3. Microwave for 60-75 seconds, 60 for a molten bottom and 75 for uniformly done. This may vary depending on the strength of your microwave.
  4. Enjoy with some ice cream and no shame!


Aww yeah. I’m definitely trying this the next time I’m craving chocolate. (Which is… like, now.)

Happy Friday!
