1-Min Fudgey Vegan Mug Brownie

Vegan Mug Brownie is the easiest chocolate dessert you’ll make. Microwave mug brownies are so chewy, fudgey and take only 1 minute to make!

Prep: 2 minCook: 1 minTotal: 3 min
Servings: 1 brownie 1x


  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp flakey salt, optional for sprinkling on top


  1. Mix. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup, cocoa powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Use a whisk or a rubber spatula to mix the ingredients until incorporated, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

A silver spoon is dipping into the ingredients and leaning against the top right side of the bowl. The bowl is centered but towards the top of the image. Additional chocolate chips are scattered to the left of the bowl on the light grey surface.
  2. Dish. Spoon the brownie batter into a microwave safe bowl or baking dish and spread it evenly to create a smooth layer.

  3. Microwave it. Place the bowl or dish with the brownie batter into the microwave and cook on high heat for 40 seconds. Cooking times may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave, so keep an eye on the brownie as it cooks to avoid overcooking. The brownie should rise slightly and appear set on top when done, but it may still be gooey in the center, which is what makes it delicious!
  4. Chip it. Sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top of the hot brownie, allowing them to melt slightly and create a gooey, chocolatey topping. If you like, you can also add a sprinkle of flaky salt on top for a burst of savory contrast to the sweetness of the brownie.

  5. Cool. Let the brownie sit for about a minute to cool slightly and set before digging in. This will allow the brownie to firm up slightly and make it easier to handle. The waiting time can be a challenge, but it’s worth it for that perfect texture!
