Quick and Easy Chocolate Walnut Mug Brownie
Nutritional Highlights (per serving)
|1/4||ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and mashed|
|3||Tbsp.||almond milk (or any kind of milk)|
|2||Tbsp.||unsweetened cocoa powder|
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
- In a small bowl, using a fork, mash together the avocado, milk, salt, and vanilla extract until smooth and no avocado chunks remain.
- Stir in the sugar, flour, cocoa powder and walnuts and mix well.
- Pour the batter into a 10-ounce or 12-ounce mug. It will be thick.
- Microwave on high for about 1 minute and 10 seconds or until the top is no longer shiny and glossy.
Note: Microwaves will vary, so set it for 1 minute and check to see if the center is still too soft. Since there are no eggs in this brownie, it’s OK to eat it soft/undercooked if desired.
Serving Suggestion: If desired, you may omit the walnuts; if you have them, stir a handful of dark chocolate chips into the batter.
Beverage Pairing: Tea or milk.
Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
