I am always craving chocolate but trying to eat skinny and clean eating isn’t always easy. I was on pinterest the other day (love – hate relationship) haha.. and found a single-serve brownie but made with regular flour. Hmmmmm… I started experimenting with gluten free flour and came up with a Gluten Free Microwave Single-Serve Brownie.
This recipe is so easy to make and it cures the quick chocolate fix. I actually felt no guilt after eating this brownie. 🙂
- 2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
- 11/2 tbs Buckwheat flour
- 2 tbs water
- 1 tbs plain or vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbs gluten free chocolate chips (optional)
- Lightly coat 1 cup ramekin or a microwave safe small or glass bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside
- In a small bowl whisk together the unsweetened cocoa and buckwheat flour. Second bowl stir together the water, yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring until well mixed.
Pour the brownie batter into the prepared ramekin. I used a spatula to scrape the bowl so there wasn’t much wasted. Microwave at 50% POWER for 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Let the brownie sit and cool for 5 minutes before eating as it keeps baking while it sits.
I added chocolate chips and it was so fudgy and decadent. If you don’t mind a bit of melted chocolate on your fingers then I recommend the chocolate chips. 🙂
*You can substitute the maple syrup for agave or liquid honey. *Dairy free version – substitute the Greek yogurt for non-dairy yogurt.
