Sometimes, after a long and tiring day, you just need a little treat.  After I got home from class around midnight tonight and ate some actual dinner, I was in the mood for such a treat, so I turned to my trusty standby mug brownie.  It’s so easy to make and always hits the spot, especially when that spot needs to be hit at 1 AM.   Never too late to treat yourself and add a little happy to your day!


Super Easy Mug Brownie Recipe:

3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp sugar **
1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
3 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tbsp oil
handful of chocolate chips

Mix all the ingredients together in a mug and microwave it for 1 minute and 10 seconds, then enjoy.  It really is that quick and that simple to indulge your chocolate craving.
** I substituted 3 packets of Splenda sweetener for the sugar.  The recipe comes out exactly the same in terms of consistency and taste, but this cuts out some of the calories and makes it a more sensible indulgence.
