Healthy 'Skinny' Mug-Brownie

Healthy Recipes - This healthy "skinny" version of a mug brownie is to die for - and only takes 30 seconds in the microwave to cook! This recipe has 1/4 the calories of a regular mug brownie! Made with agave nectar and yogurt instead of sugar and butter.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 Tablespoon applesauce or yogurt – any variety (I used a fat free light vanilla yogurt – you could also use a plain Greek, or even a fruit-flavored yogurt)
  • 2 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey (I used an organic blue agave nectar)
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons flour (I used 1 T white, 1 T whole-wheat)
  • 1 Tablespoon egg white (If doubling, use one whole egg white)
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate chips
  • 1 little splash of vanilla (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 1 generous pinch salt


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a mug with a fork.
  2. Microwave for about 30 seconds. Do NOT over bake – or it will turn out like a dry chocolate sponge. The brownie will be done when bubbles form at the top – but still looks wet.
