Very, Very Exciting Recipe Update:

A short time after I published this recipe, Trim Healthy Mama reached out and asked if they could use it in their bible ! This was a dream come true – I still ca n’t believe I get to see one of my favorite recipes in print ! You can find it on page 405 of Trim Healthy Table !

Brownie Batter Cake in a Mug - this is a healthy take on gooey brownie batter! THM "S"

This low-carb brownie batter in a mug has become my go-to dessert for cocoa cravings ! I love promptly desserts. I particularly love to make smaller serve desserts to ensure that :
a ) I do n’t eat excessively much ( flush goodly desserts can lead to calorie overload ) ;
b ) I can drill my ninja skills and try to make these without one of my five kids seeing ( and subsequently stealing ) my extra treat ;
hundred ) I can fake my people out and make them think I ‘m eating something dreadfully unhealthy. I ( normally ) end up confessing that this is actually a healthy dessert, but by then, it ‘s excessively late, and I ‘ve eaten it all. ( Do n’t worry, it ‘s easy enough to make a second brownie, and I ‘ll wholly do it ! I ‘m not THAT selfish ) .
After my single-serving chocolate chip cookie recipe, I wanted to tackle a elf – well, not a brownie, precisely, but gooey brownie BATTER. I came up with TONS Of brownie-in-a-mug-type recipes, but when I last got to this one, I knew I ‘d found a winner. It looks cooked, but the inside stays gooey and delightful, more like elf dinge. This is in truth chocolate-y .

You decidedly wo n’t want to cook this longer than 40 seconds to a infinitesimal, because overcooking changes the texture and messes with the spirit. At about 30-40 seconds, you ‘ll want to pull this out of the microwave and look for a gooey consistency – that ‘s when it ‘s perfect ! Let it cool, and then enjoy the brownie-battery good. Tasting this cold, it tasted like elf dinge, but I think it good needs a little heat to blend the flavors. Microwaving it for about 30 seconds was just long enough to melt the chocolate chips a little – so you have options ! I barely want to note here that this is not a recipe for a bake patty or muffin in a countenance – it ‘s supposed to be gooey !
This recipe is egg-free, indeed if you worry about eating undercooked eggs – you can stop. Worrying about that, I mean. Because there are none in this recipe. The end .
I did notice a HUGE deviation when I tested this with Hershey ‘s cocoa powder vs. a nice one – the better timbre cocoa powder makes it taste way better, so I in truth recommend going with something like Ghirardelli. But I think it tastes good either way – the better cocoa gunpowder just gives a little extra something .
This is a Trim Healthy Mama “ S ” recipe .

Serves :



  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 1½ Tablespoons cocoa powder (you can reduce to 1 T cocoa powder if you don’t want it to be as intense)
  • 1 Tablespoon THM Gentle Sweet OR 2 tsp Swerve plus a good pinch of pure stevia extract
  • 2½ Tablespoons THM Baking Blend
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Lily’s Baking Chips


  1. Melt coconut oil (I like to melt mine in the ramekin or mug I’ll be using to make the brownie batter; that way I don’t have to spray it with cooking spray) and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix dry ingredients well in a small bowl.
  3. Add vanilla and almond milk to melted coconut oil and stir to combine.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix thoroughly.
  5. Stir in Lily’s chocolate chips. You may want to taste your mixture here to check the sweetness.
  6. Pour into a microwave-safe ramekin or mug.
  7. Microwave for 30-40 seconds. It should puff up a bit, but still look undercooked. You may microwave up to a minute, but I don’t recommend anything past that.
  8. Let it cool before eating.
