Chocolate And Peanut Butter Brownie In A Mug

Do you ever get the craving for a sweet treat but you don’t want to bother with making a whole batch of cookies or a huge pan of brownies? If you’re like me, having a dozen cookies on hand or a 9″ by 13″ pan of brownies would mean one thing: I’d be tempted to eat them all!

This craving hit me just the other day. I had finished dinner and was catching up on shows on the DVR and I decided I wanted something sweet for dessert. I have heard about recipes for just one or two cookies, but I wanted something fast. And I didn’t want to mess with heating up the oven for just two cookies. I found this recipe for a brownie in a mug that you make in the microwave! Score!

This is the perfect amount for one serving and can usually be made with ingredients that you already have in the pantry. I have experimented with the recipe over the past few weeks by creating a “blondie” version using butterscotch, and a “white chocolate” version, but I have to say that my latest attempt was the best because this one combines two of my favorites, peanut butter and chocolate.  And to make it just a touch less fattening, I used Splenda instead of sugar and it worked perfectly!

The next time you need a quick dessert fix you must try this! And let us know how it turns out!

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup flour
  2. 1/4 cup sugar (or Splenda)
  3. 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. Pinch of cinnamon
  6. 1/4 cup water
  7. 1 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
  8. 1 tsp. vanilla
  9. 1 Tbsp. peanut butter
  10. 1/4 cup nuts
Instructions
  1. Place dry ingredients into a microwave safe mug and mix.
  2. Add the oil, peanut butter, water, vanilla, and nuts and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Place the mug in the microwave uncovered and heat on high until the mixture is cooked through. I started with a minute and 30 seconds and found that 2 minutes was perfect for a 1000 watt microwave.
  4. Let it cool before diving in... the center will be like hot lava!
Notes
  1. You can top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired. You can add whatever kind of nuts you like: peanuts, walnuts, or even trail mix! Or none at all!
