3-Minute Microwave Brownie

I’m so happy I stumbled across this recipe because this is quite possibly the best brownie I have ever had. And I’ve had many a brownie in my day. Maybe it was the caramel sauce drizzled on top? I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter. I’m making this again tomorrow. Probably with chocolate chips stirred into the batter.

I love these single serving desserts so much! I’m someone who likes to limit the amount of refined sugars I eat – although it may not seem like it from all the desserts I post! So to me – having one serving of brownie is so much better than having a full pan sitting on my counter. Because I have no self control when it comes to desserts. The above brownie was gone in 2 minutes. Tops. I had to take this picture quickly before I ate the entire thing.

I have a few other ideas in store for more single serving desserts. I hope you guys love them as much as I do!


  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking cocoa
  • 2 tbsp light oil (or applesauce for a low fat version!)
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk (I used So Delicious Chocolate Coconut Milk)
  • a tiny dash of salt

Mix the dry ingredients together until well combined. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the oil and milk into the well and mix into the dry. Add the dash of salt and mix until just combined.

Microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds – 2 minutes on HIGH. Allow to cool before eating.

  • Hey! What kind of sugar do you use? I can’t remember where, but I once read that regular, white sugar (not raw), besides being bleached, is also sometimes filtered through animal bones. Have you heard that too? Apparently animal bones remove impurities or something like that. Anyway, this looks super good and I was trying to find the microwave brownie recipe I made a while ago because I’m craving chocolate sooo badly, and I stumbled across your recipe on google and checked it out because “vegan” caught my eye. Loving your site!!! So happy I found you! Thanks so much<3

    • Hello! I’m so glad you found my blog and love the recipes! And yes – that’s correct. Some sugars are bleached and processed using bone char from animals. I use only sugar that is certified vegan. The brands I use most are Wholesome Sweeteners, Florida Crystals, or Whole Foods’ brand.

  • Amazing! Had mine with some Alpro custard. Have to disagree that this is a single serving. However this didn’t stop me from scoffing the lot!

  • I will have to decrease the cooking time because in 1’45” it turned out hard as a rock and pretty dry… still ate it tho ;-), flavor was good.

  • Tried this twice (both times using cacao powder and almond milk), once with oil and once with applesauce. Oil version was good, I added cacao nibs and almonds :). Applesauce version was very good, it was moist, sweet and fudgey, I added a chocolate sauce on top 🙂 (made from dark chocolate spread and almond milk). I will continue to make the applesauce version 😀
