Skinny Single Serving Microwave Brownie!

Skinny Single-Serving Microwave Brownie

Yield: 1 brownie

This brownie is so dark and fudgy! It’ll satisfy any decadent dark chocolate cravings in a heartbeat. If preparing more than one, microwave the ramekins individually.

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (measured correctly)
1 ½ tbsp whole wheat flour (measured correctly)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 tsp agave
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Lightly coat a 1-cup ramekin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa and flour. In a separate bowl, stir together the water, yogurt, agave, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring just until incorporated.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared ramekin, gently shaking back and forth until the top is smooth. Microwave at 40% POWER for 2 minutes and 15 seconds (2:15). Let the brownie sit for at least 3 minutes before eating.

Notes: Regular or non-dairy yogurt may be substituted for the Greek yogurt. Maple syrup or honey may be substituted for the agave.

Although the brownie may not appear to be full cooked, it will continue to bake through while it sits for the final 3 minutes. Even so, there are no eggs in this recipe, so there’s no salmonella to worry about!

Alternative baking method: Bake in a conventional oven at 300°F for about 10 minutes. The center should still look slightly glossy and underdone, but it will continue to cook through as it cools.
