This quick and easy recipe is better for you than your average brownie. Stir together the batter in a coffee cup, microwave for about 90 seconds -- and voila -- enjoy a warm brownie straight from the mug! For a boost of nutrition, the batter is made with coconut sugar and whole-wheat pastry flour rather than highly processed white sugar and white flour.



1. Add the grapeseed oil (or avocado oil) to a large (12-ounce or larger capacity) microwave-safe mug. Swirl or brush the inside of the mug with the oil to coat.
2. Add the egg, almond milk (or coconut milk beverage), extracts, and salt and whisk until combined.
3. Then stir in coconut sugar (or turbinado sugar), cocoa powder, and flour until evenly combined.
4. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute 15 seconds for a fudgy brownie, or 1 minute 30 seconds for a cakier brownie. (Note: Microwave cooking times vary.)
5. Remove mug from microwave and let stand for 5 minutes.
6. Enjoy straight from the mug or invert and serve without mug. Insert candy cane (preferably organic) to serve.
