  • To add some extra flavor to the microwave mug brownie, you can use brown sugar instead of cane sugar.

What Other Variations Can I Try?

You can try lots of different variations to the brownie mug cake recipe.

Instead of the vegan chocolate chips, you can use peanut butter chips or some caramel chips into the mix.

Another great idea is to add some chopped walnuts into the brownie mixture.

You can also make a dark chocolate version of this brownie in a mug recipe by using dark chocolate chips instead of the regular ones.

How Do I Serve the Brownie Mug Cake?

You can enjoy the vegan brownie mug cake on its own when you’re hit by a brownie craving.

If you want to go the extra mile, you can team it up with some vanilla ice cream topped on it, or even just some whipped cream.
