Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)

Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook

Nutritional value: The calories are high preserving due to sugar and oil. To lower these you can use more natural sugars and oil like coconut.

    Thanks for a great and quick recipe! Hubby said he felt like a brownie after dinner and tomorrow is fathers day so I figured I couldn’t deny him the treat.
    He thought it was delicious!
    I added some 70% dark chocolate chunks in, instead of the chocolate chips and they were a great addition.

    • Gemma Stafford on June 16, 2019 at 6:12 am

      LOVE to hear that!! Thank you so much for trying it out 🙂

      Best,
      Gemma.

    what adjustments would you recommend for date sugar?
    id like to use whole where possible foods, so I was thinking of using rolled oats rolled into “flour”.
    thanks

    • Gemma Stafford on June 13, 2019 at 5:58 am

      Hi Brent,
      I would not make an adjustment for the palm sugar for this recipe, as long as it is fine enough to incorporate into the recipe in the time, it will be good.
      The oat flour I would not be too sure about, it is a totally different thing to wheat flour, it is denser, and of course, it has no gluten, so it will give a different result.
      Usually, you would mix the oat flour with another type of flour, to lighten it, but it will be an experiment for this recipe. Try it! it is just a little recipe, and you can experiment with it,
      Gemma 🙂

    This looks great — my kids will love this for college! Could avocado oil be used?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 11, 2019 at 9:15 am

      Hi Kay! I personally have not tried working with avocado oil, but I have read a lot about it’s benefits. I do not see a problem replacing the oil with avocado oil. Let me know how that goes. I always love to hear from Bold Bakers who try new ingredients. Gemma 🙂

    Gemma,

    I made this this past week and it was not something that I would make again. It was to chocolatey and a little dry and I only cooked it for 45 seconds. I think it needs a little egg. It tasted like I was eating pure cocoa.

      Hi Patty! Thanks for letting me know. I am sorry this recipe did not work out for you. As your brownie turned out dry, you can definitely try baking it a few seconds shorter. I am guessing that your microwave must have more wattage than mine (1200W) or your cooking vessel had something to do with it. It is mean to be super chocolatey. You can try using white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips to mellow down the chocolate flavor. Or a nice vanilla ice cream or whipped cream would be grand. Best, Gemma 😊

    Hi Gemma,

    Can I put it in the fridge?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 29, 2019 at 12:04 pm

      Hi,

      Yes you can put it in the fridge for 24 hours before you cook it off.

      Best,
      Gemma.
