What is your go-to when you’re looking for a sweet treat that isn’t hard to make? We’ve been opting for mug brownies more and more recently, as we’ve discovered just how easy and quick it is to make these delicious treats. Would you like to learn how to make these yourself? Here’s a simple recipe to follow!


  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • Chocolate chips (optional)


Start off by combining the flour, white sugar, salt, and cocoa powder in a 12 ounce coffee mug. Stir together thoroughly, being sure the mixture does not produce clumps and is completely smooth. If you want to add a few chocolate chips, do so after mixing the other dry ingredients together.

Next, add the whole milk and vegetable oil and whisk together. Again, be sure there are no big clumps in the batter and the mixture is relatively even and consistent. It should be thick, but still easy to mix.

Place in your microwave and start off by microwaving for one minute. Take it out and check to see if the brownie is completely cooked through, and if not, microwave in 15-30 second intervals until it is. It shouldn’t take any longer than 2 minutes. Enjoy!
