Easy Vegan Mug Brownie

"I’m definitely not a baker, but I like baked things. 👏🏽Being stuck at home has made me want to experiment with some fun easy recipes. 🥣One that I was working on for the longest time was this mug brownie. Cooks up in the microwave for 45 seconds and gets an extra chocolate flavor boost by adding a little splash of coffee. ☕️ I included a lot of details on ingredient swaps (gluten free option) and included oven instructions in case you don’t have a microwave. ✨ For more brownie fun, I added a scoop of vanilla @cadoicecream and it just was the best thing ever. 🤤"

Sometimes you don't need or want to make a full batch of brownies, but a vegan mug brownie is just enough! Serve immediately with a scoop of ice cream.
