A Clean-Eating Chocolate Mug Brownie


  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons oat flour*
  • 2 Tablespoons dark cocoa, or regular unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons natural sweetener, cup-for-cup to sugar such as Swerve**
  • 2 Tablespoons milk, or preferred nut milk (Can also use 1 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt + 1 Tbsp milk of choice)
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • 1–2 Tablespoons sugar-free chocolate chips (my favorites are Lily’s or Bake Believe because they use Stevia)


Scoop the coconut oil into a mug. If the oil has been at room temperature, it’s probably fine, but if not ready to stir, soften for 8 seconds at 50% power in the microwave. Add oat flour, dark cocoa, sweetener, milk or nut milk, and vanilla, stirring gently after each addition.

Recipe notes:

*If making this gluten free, be sure the brand of oat flour is certified gluten free.
