There are tons of recipes on the internet for 1-minute brownies or cakes and some work, others just turn out terribly.  I don’t eat eggs and since most of the recipes call for them, it limits me to what recipe will work.  I began experimenting on my own to find a recipe that worked perfectly for individuals with food allergies or vegan diets and came up with a healthy version that can come out to around 100 calories (depending on extras add-ins). I love having one of these after a stressful day or when I have a chocolate.  This easily doubles as well!



4 TBSP flour (I use whole wheat, but spelt and almond are good too!)

2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder

1-2 TBSP sugar (or a pinch, depends on your sweet tooth)

Pinch of salt

2 TBSP applesauce

2-3 TBSP almond, soy or cows milk (3 is usually the best guess)

Optional: peanut butter chips, chocolate chips



1-Mix dry, then wet and put it in a coffee mug.

2-Place in microwave for 1-1 minute 30 seconds and allow to cool before eating

3-Top with peanut butter or ice cream for extra sweetness if desired.


Endless Ocean: Dive, Discover, Dream

On a side note, I completed my third game this year.  I beat Endless Ocean last night.  I still have treasures, the pirates ship and more fish to find, but for now I’m putting it back on the shelf.  It’s a really great game and the perfect pick up and play for a few minutes game.
