Confused about which vegan milk is the best to use in your recipe?

People often ask what is a mug dessert.
A mug dessert, sometimes called a ’60 second’ or similar name, is a recipe made for one person.
It is made in a microwave oven, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the amount of time it takes to cook it.
This mug dessert is for a brownie.
You can make this dessert in a mug or ramekin.
Please make sure that what ever you choose to make it in, it is also suitable for cooking in a microwave oven (microwave safe).
What makes a mug dessert so good?
Well, for starters, it is a dessert that is easy to make.
That is, a recipe for one usually calls for fewer ingredients and in smaller amounts.
Here is what else makes this recipe so good.
This recipe is made with unsweetened cocoa.
It also has chocolate chips which makes this dessert both chocolaty and gooey.
Tips for making a mug brownie.
I like to prep my mug before adding the other ingredients.
A quick spray with nonstick will help prevent sticking.
Here are some more great tips for you.
- Make these brownies more like other brownies. Simply add some chopped walnuts or peanut inside or on top.
- Whip up some vegan whipped topping. This is one of my favorite ways to serve this up.
- Make this recipe sugar free. You can do so by swapping the sugar out for some sugar alternative and using sugar free chocolate chips.
- Avoid over mixing and/or over cooking this recipe. Remember, microwaved food can continue to cook after the microwaving has ended.
What is the best kind of a mug to use for a mug dessert.
I mentioned above that the mug that you use should be microwave safe.
It should also be large enough to hold the ingredients.
The best mug to use in this recipe should be at least 16 ounces in size.
The mug should also be microwave safe.
Also suitable for this recipe are ramekins that are microwave safe. Smaller ramekins can make this into a two serving recipe!

How to make this Easy Vegan Mug Brownie.
- Give your microwave safe mug a quick spray with nonstick. Then place the dry ingredient inside (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder). Give the dry ingredients a mix using a small whisk or fork.
- Add the almond milk, oil and vanilla to the mug and stir again until just combined.
- Use a butter knife or small spatula to fold in the chocolate chips.
- Microwave the brownie for 60 seconds. If after a 15 second rest your brownie is too moist in the center, you can microwave for another 15-20 seconds. Keep in mind that baking continues after the microwave stops and that there are no added eggs in this recipe. I prefer mine a bit moist in the center 🙂 .
