Enjoy a single serve dessert with this healthy flourless 1-minute paleo vegan pumpkin mug brownie! This healthy, gooey mug brownie needs just 4 ingredients and needs no flour and no eggs- It’s keto and low carb too!
Healthy 1 Minute Flourless Mug Brownie
Even with a healthy brownie recipe, there is always the temptation to have more than necessary, thanks to the ‘healthy’ nature of it. As with any food, moderation is key. Luckily, this healthy 1-minute mug brownie recipe covers all your bases!
You actually have no excuses NOT to make it.
I’ve been trying to pace myself with sharing pumpkin recipes, but that went out the window when the pumpkin spice latte balls, pumpkin edible cookie dough, and flourless pumpkin chocolate muffins came into the picture.
When I shared the healthy flourless pumpkin brownie recipe, several readers reached out asking if there was a way to make a smaller portion, and as a means to use up leftover pumpkin puree.
Done and done.
HEALTHY BROWNIE IN A MUG
To condense a full batch of brownies, I’ve made a healthy brownie in a mug recipe! You guys, it is gooey, fudgy and needs minimal prep! It is made without eggs, without flour and with no sugar, but you’d never tell!
Not only is it vegan (no eggs!), paleo (no grains and no flour!) and keto friendly (low carb and ZERO sugar), it also only needs 4 ingredients to whip this up-
- A nut or seed butter of choice
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Granulated sweetener of choice
- Pumpkin puree
You can use peanut butter, but this is not technically paleo-friendly and has an overpowering flavor.
The granulated sweetener of choice is necessary, as the brownie NEEDS some sweetness. I use a granulated monk fruit sweetener to keep it keto/ vegan-friendly, but any sugar or sugar substitute works.
For those of you who don’t want to use pumpkin puree and/or don’t follow a ketogenic diet, you can swap out the pumpkin for an overripe medium banana. Using a banana would also eliminate the need to use so much sweetener!
Confession- I prefer using the banana and using peanut butter, as this combo is the dream!
To take this healthy paleo vegan mug brownie up a level, consider adding a hefty dose of chocolate chips to it- The taste and texture will be incredible!
GOOEY MUG BROWNIE RECIPE WITHOUT EGG
The best part of using pumpkin puree is that you achieve a gooey mug brownie recipe, without the need for any eggs. It also means you can barely cook it to completion and still be fine enjoying it!
I would just be cautious to not overly undercook it if you add chocolate chips- You’ll be left with more of a pudding-like consistency!
NO MICROWAVE? NO PROBLEM!
While this healthy mug brownie recipe takes a minute to whip up, that requires the use of a microwave. I understand not everyone has one, or don’t feel comfortable using it.
That is perfectly fine.
Confession- The mug brownie you see pictured was actually BAKED in the oven!
I actually prefer using the oven as I find it cooks evenly and even achieves the dome shape (especially if you load it with chocolate chips and bake on high broil for the first 2 minutes!)
To bake this mug brownie in the oven, bake for 10-12 minutes at 180C/350F. Remove when the desired texture is achieved.
Satisfy your healthy chocolate cravings with this ooey, gooey, fudgy brownie in a mug- You will be satisfied AND can finish it all off, solo!
