When you’re craving a brownie and you need it now – this quick and easy mug brownie will satisfy. It’s made with a few pantry staples and heart-healthy California avocado instead of butter. The best part – it cooks in about one minute in the microwave. It’s like an avocado mug cake recipe, but it’s a brownie! Serve with a scoop of ice cream if desired, and a mug of tea or a glass of milk to drink.

Start cooking

Serves: 1

1/4 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and mashed 3 Tbsp. almond milk (or any kind of milk) 1/8 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 2 Tbsp. sugar 3 Tbsp. flour 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder 1 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
  1. In a small bowl, using a fork, mash together the avocado, milk, salt, and vanilla extract until smooth and no avocado chunks remain.
  2. Stir in the sugar, flour, cocoa powder and walnuts and mix well.
  3. Pour the batter into a 10-ounce or 12-ounce mug. It will be thick.
  4. 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.

Did You Know?

In addition to using avocados in baking as a smart substitution for butter and shortening, California Avocados are wonderful in other desserts like avocado pie, avocado mousse and avocado ice cream.

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
