Single-Serving Brownie Cupcake

Just as good as making a whole batch of brownies but without the leftover temptation! Try this single-serving cupcake on for size; you won't feel guilty afterwards.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray, for the muffin cup
  • 2  tablespoons  whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1  tablespoon  vegan chocolate chips
  • 1  tablespoon  light brown sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  unsweetened cocoa
  • Dash of  cinnamon
  • 1  tablespoon  agave nectar
  • 1  tablespoon  unsweetened applesauce
  • 1  teaspoon  nondairy milk
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a single muffin cup and set aside. In a bowl, mix the flour, chocolate chips, sugar, cocoa, and cinnamon together.

Vegan Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Vegan Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
