Chocolate Fudge Microwave Brownie

I keep seeing recipes for single-serve microwave desserts. They're everywhere! For the longest time I didn't get it. I thought, 'Why not just make a whole batch of something?' Well, I tried it...and I TOTALLY get it now! I can see myself making a hot brownie or cake every night. And with this recipe, I don't feel super guilty because it's pretty nutritious.

Chocolate Fudge Microwave Brownie - adapted from Lexie's Kitchen
makes 2 servings (vegan & gluten free)

1/4 c. oat flour
1/4 c. sugar (or dry sweetener of choice)
3 T. cocoa powder
2 T. coconut flour
1/4 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
2/3 c. soy milk (any other milk would probably work too)
2 T. coconut oil
2t. vanilla
1/4 t. liquid stevia extract

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Combine milk and coconut oil in a microwave safe cup. Microwave for 30-60 seconds or until oil is melted. (I used the same spoon to measure the cocoa and coconut oil, hence the brown looking milk mixture...)
 Add milk mixture to dry ingredients along with vanilla and stevia. Mix well. (Batter will be thin.)
 Pour batter into 2 mugs or heavy duty glass cups.
 Microwave for 3 minutes + 30 seconds.
 Let brownies cool for 5-10 minutes before digging in! Trust me, they will stay plenty hot for quite a while. Personally, I don't enjoy burning off my taste buds.
 Now you can dig in!
 These are seriously fudgy! Top it off with some ice cream or whipped cream = no words!
