Adapted from: https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/microwave-mug-brownie/


Yield: 2 servings

Serving size: half of a medium (1 cup, 250ml) mug brownie



3 tbs (30g)  erythritol or xylitol

3 tbs (15g) almond flour OR other nut flour

1/2 ts. psyllium husk powder OR 1 ts. coconut flour

3 tbs (16g) cocoa powder (unsweetened)

1 tbs. (14g) butter OR other fat of choice

1 tbs. (15ml) water OR low-carb nut milk OR coffee

(optional) 1/4 ts. salt

(optional) 1/2 ts. vanilla flavoring

(optional) 1 ts. sugar-free chocolate chips (click for a DIY recipe)



First melt the butter in your microwave-safe mug of choice, then mix in all the other ingredients thoroughly until all the lumps are gone. Microwave for 40 seconds, check to see if there are any wet areas. If there are, continue to microwave for additional 10 second bursts until the wet spots are gone. DO NOT over-cook or the brownie will get dry and crumbly.

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
