I seriously wish my high school science teacher could spend a day in my kitchen with me.

To say that I was not a fan of this school subject would be a gross understatement. I was beyond terrible at it. The concepts, atoms, and ions made me want to throw a bunsen burner on the ground in frustrations.

Oh, wait…I did that.

I still remember some of the ridiculous answers I left on our tests, mainly because I hadn’t studied, but also because I knew that once I hit the 10th grade, I could drop it completely!

Q- “What is the symbol for water?”

My answer- Wa. (It was H20).

Q- “What are planets outside our solar system called?”

My answer- Insignificant planets. (The correct answer was extrasolar planets).

Q- What is the lifespan of a human blood cell?

My answer- Until you die. (Google tells me it is around 120 days)

You get the point.

Looking back now, I wish I had paid more attention in my three years of science classes. I can only imagine how much time I’d save with experimenting with recipes, especially baking! Fast forward to our current time period and welcome to my kitchen to a new science experiment of sorts.

This healthy low carb chocolate brownie is moist, gooey, and perfect single-serve dessert or snack to enjoy anytime! It also only takes less than a minute to whip up, or under 12 minutes if you bake it in the oven! This is the healthy kind of dessert you can enjoy anytime, even after exercise- Seriously! It’s packed with protein and could totally replace your standard shake, and is on par with one, calorie wise. Because of the ingredients used, it’s completely paleo, vegan, gluten free, grain free, dairy free and sugar free!

As protein powder is one of the key ingredients here, I highly recommend you be careful of what kind of protein powder you use! As always, I tried it out with this vegan brown rice protein powder, this casein protein powder, and this paleo protein powder. Dietary restrictions aside, I’d recommend the vegan or casein one, in terms of the best texture. For those of you who prefer whey protein powder, this is not the recipe I’d use it for. I tried three different whey protein brands, and they all had the same effect- The final result was dry and sponge-like. 

Today, I wanted to delve a little further into the microwave VS oven debate (for my one-minute mug cakes and brownies), along with the egg VS no egg suggestions. These kind of experiments were much more exciting than my high school days, especially as in most instances, I could eat the final product (bar the several hockey pucks…).

OVEN VS MICROWAVE

Time is the key factor here, but depending on which method of baking you choose, they both actually can result in a different texture. The pictures shown within the post is actually made in the oven. If you check out the texture closely, it’s quite tender on the outside and fluffy and moist on the inside. This wouldn’t be possible in the microwave, BUT it takes a fraction of the time. However, if you want to use the oven AND have a really gooey center, you’ll just need to remove it a little earlier, when it just begins to firm up on top. 

EGGS VS NO EGGS

Similarly, you can still achieve a gooey and moist center without the egg/egg white. Whether or not you follow a vegan lifestyle or not, you can do this. You’ll just need to increase the milk of choice by a tablespoon or two. Granted, this will not be as fluffy or firm, but if that’s the texture you are going for, go for it. Also, the egg VS egg white debacle, I actually prefer the latter, as it makes it fluffier. Regardless, you choose whichever works for you!

Make this healthy 1-minute low carb chocolate brownie and if you are still in school, pay attention in science class.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Lightly grease a small microwave safe cereal bowl or oven safe ramekin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients and mix well. Add your egg white, milk of choice and chocolate chunks and mix until a thick batter is formed. If the mixture is too thick (it will most likely be), continue to add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a thick batter remains. 
  • If using a microwave, microwave in 30-second intervals until desired texture is achieved (I usually get the best texture at 55 seconds). If using an oven, bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out 'just clean' from the center. 

Notes

* To keep it vegan, omit completely- You'll need to add an extra tablespoon of non-dairy milk to compensate.
** Depending on the protein powder and coconut flour you use, you may need more. Adjust accordingly.

  1. I always use the microwave version. I am lazy and impatient. Also I always use the full egg. I know it might diminish the fluff factor but I hate to waste the yolks.

    This post reminds me of the one time in chemistry class when my teacher used flour to demonstrate a dust explosion and (not for the first neither the last time) got the measurements wrong… it was AWESOME!

  2. Hahaha…I bet your science teacher really loved having you in class! I hear ya, though. I actually did like science…well, some science. Chemistry was ok, and I loved Physics. But man did I hate Biology. I’m just not into medicine and guts and stuff. No thank you. But I am a huge fan of this 1-minute brownie. And I need to spend the next 60 seconds making one…and then the next 10 seconds after that eating one. 🙂

  3. I am not a youngster (LOL) and not a sports person, never used or even heard of protein powder,
    found some on Amazon,(UK) seems to be for sporty people
    is there a something I could substitute for this?

  4. Has anyone worked out the carbs content. Why do so many ‘low carb’ recipes only calculate calories, not very helpful for those of us trying to count carbs?

  5. It looks so yummmy but can i use oat flour or whole wheat flour because coconut flour is not available in my country and thank you

  6. Any chance you can start posting the nutritional facts (calories, carbs, fat, protein) on your recipes??

  7. Arman, I’m in heaven!!!!! This was oh my tastebuds delicious!!!!! This is going to be my go to when a girl needs that,,,,,chocolate please kind of day!!!! Thanks so much for all the great recipes you post for us. Keep up the great work…..hugs, Dianna

  8. Hello, I’d like to know if you use always the same cup in your recipes and i’m also wondering how much ml is your cup measuring? Because in every country it’s different. Thank you very much for response :))

  9. I love every recipe that you make. This one is so good- I’m currently eating it for breakfast even though it’s a “brownie” ?

  10. Can you use almond flour instead of coconut flour? I have that at home at the moment and don’t feel like waiting until coconut flour would arrive to try this delicious recipe!
