2Tablespoonvegan chocolate chipsmore for sprinkling on top
4Tablespoonsplant milk of choice
1/2 teaspoonvanilla extract
2 ½Tablespoonsvegetable oil like melted coconut, avocado, or corn
In a 12-14 ounce microwave-safe mug, mix together dry ingredients: flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, salt, vegan chocolate chips. Set aside
In a separate small bowl, measure out the plant milk. Pour the vinegar and vanilla into it and then the oil.
Give the liquids a stir and pour all at once into the mug with dry ingredients. Mix well, ensuring the dry ingredients from the bottom of the mug are well incorporated.
Put in a microwave. Microwave times will vary. Heat on high for about 90 seconds till the top is no longer shiny and wet. If you need to microwave longer, do it in 10-second increments.
Allow cooling slightly before eating. Top with sprinkles, or vegan vanilla ice cream.
Special Note:The ingredients were developed for one single serving size - or one mug. If you want to batch prepare the dry ingredients for six brownie mugs at a time follow these ingredient amounts:1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons flour3/4 cup plus 3 Tablespoons brown sugar3/4 cup cocoa powder1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon1 1/2 teaspoon saltMix all together into a mixing bowl.You will need 3/4 cup chocolate chips BUT - Hold off on the chocolate chips till the dry ingredients are measured out in the mugs and add 2 Tablespoons to each of the 6 mugs. If you mix the chips in all at once with the dry ingredients, they will sink to the bottom of the bowl and not distribute evenly into each mug. IMPORTANT - you will measure out 1/2 cup dry mix for each cup one at a time BUT you will take out 1 teaspoon. This is the exact amount needed for each mug - 1/2 cup less 1 teaspoon.One teaspoon might seem trivial - but ingredients for this individual-sized brownie mug were developed for exactly this proportion. NOW add in the 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips and mix together. The wet ingredients are the same as above as they will be mixed and added to each cup separately.
