What Is A Mug Brownie?

A mug brownie is a single serving brownie made in a mug. Ya just pop all of your ingredients into a microwave safe cup and cook it in the microwave! my favorite part about making this vegan mug brownie recipe is that there are no extra dishes! Score!

This mug brownie is sort of like a vegan mug cake, but the texture is much more ooey gooey VS cakey! Both great, just different!

Why Is This A Vegan Mug Brownie?

Personally, I am not a vegan by any means. Ya girl loves her meat and dairy. However, sometimes you make a recipe and it turns out that there are no animal products in it! That’s what happened here.

Plus, I do love to challenge myself in the kitchen sometimes and create recipes in new ways with new ingredients.

I also know I have a lot of vegan readers and love to give them some recipes to make, too!
