Brownie in a Mug ... errr I mean a Jar.

I have to admit, I have never been a brownie person. 

But this is an exception.

This is something that you mix in a cup and microwave for 60 seconds. 

It’s like…magic.


Most recipes use flour and oil like a normal brownie.

But, I like to use old-fashioned g-free oats (or whole wheat pastry flour) and nonfat greek yogurt.  It is a bit healthier than a regular brownie (no eggs, white flour, butter, or oil).  And it will satisfy a sweet tooth any day.

Just gives you all the more reason to make it, right?


Oh yeah, and I make this in mason jars.  

Save the mugs for your coffee, ladies and gents.

60-Second Brownie in a Jar

  • 2 tbsp. nonfat greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3-4 tbsp. white sugar
  • 4 tbsp. whole-wheat pastry flour (I like to use old-fashioned oats + a little wheat flour)
  • handful of chocolate chips, if you want


 - In a 12 oz. mug (or mason jar), add water, yogurt, and vanilla. Whisk well.

- Add cocoa, sugar, and flour/oats… And mix it all up.

- Microwave for 60-90 seconds. Center should be slightly molten.

- Sprinkle with powdered sugar and fresh strawberries = YUM-O 

Just SO fast! … let’s do that again.

Of course, only after you sweat and eat your veggies.  ;)
