Microwave Brownie Cake


I've created a personal-sized brownie/cupcake that is a sweet, easy, healthy treat, created entirely in one's microwave.  It's vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, oil free, and all over pretty darn healthy. And, for those weight-watchers out there, it's only 60 calories.

Bon Appetit!



1 Tbsp Chickpea Flour
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp Applesauce
1 Tbsp Milk (Almond, Soy, Dairy, etc.)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Packets Stevia (or other sweeteners) can adjust to taste

Mix together in a microwave-safe mug (it should have the consistency of approximately pancake batter, so adjust milk quantity accordingly). The batter has a very strong taste of chickpea flour, but the chickpea mellows out during cooking, so don't worry!

Microwave for 1 min. Check to make sure it's doing alright.

Microwave for 30-45 sec. more, depending on how gooey you want your treat!

It's best served hot, so don't wait to dig in!
