Happy Thursday…only one more day until Friday! Woot woot! 🙂
What’s the best way to celebrate the arrival of the weekend?! With a chocolately treat you say?! I couldn’t agree more!
I got home from work today, made and ate some nachos for dinner, and then stood in front of the pantry for five minutes searching for something sweet. See, I have a super sweet tooth, so this means that after dinner I am always trying to find a little treat for myself. When I was younger, I could down six Chips Ahoy cookies easy. Unfortunately, today was a bit rough because there was nothing sweet in sight. However, I am not one to give up, so I racked my brain and finally came up with an idea – microwaveable brownies. Well, having an idea is always a good thing but then what. I have never made brownies in the microwave, so I called upon my trusted friend Google to help me out. After a quick search on “microwaveable brownie recipes,” I found exactly what I was looking for, so here’s how I went from sweetless to ooey gooey chocolately goodness in less than three minutes.
Microwaveable Brownie Bowl
Adapted from this recipe
3 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 small pinch of salt
3 tablespoons raw organic sugar
2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Whisk together apple sauce, water, vanilla extract, and salt in a deep bowl. Then, one at a time, add the dry ingredients, whisking in between. Once all the ingredients are combined, microwave for 45-60 seconds and enjoy! The brownie will be very hot so very careful.
These pictures aren’t the prettiest, but let me tell you, this little bowl was just what I was looking for!
