Servings 1


  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoon plant-based milk, plain and unsweetened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, white or whole wheat
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegan chocolate chips, dark or semi-sweet


  • Add the vegan butter to a mug and melt in the microwave, about 20 seconds.
  • Add the plant-based milk and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  • Stir in the brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour and salt. Whisk until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Microwave for 60-90 seconds. Microwave it for closer to 60 seconds for a fudgier brownie and closer to 90 seconds for more of a cake-like brownie.


For a gluten-free option, use Bob's Red Mill 1:1 gluten-free flour.
Whole grain spelt flour also works with this recipe.
You can swap the vegan butter for a light-tasting oil, such as avocado oil.
Use any plant-based milk you have on hand, ideally plain and unsweetened to avoid changing the flavor of the brownie. I tested this recipe with both soy milk and oat milk.
This recipe works with both white sugar and brown sugar. Make sure to use vegan sugar to make this recipe 100% vegan.
Use your favorite vegan chocolate chips. I love using Enjoy Life semi-sweet mini chocolate chips.
