Quick Fix Microwave Walnut Fudge Brownie

What you need: 

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking POWDER
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons soy/rice milk
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (mandatory)
1 tablespoon melted butter substitute
pinch of salt

What you do: 

In a microwavable bowl combine all dry ingredients (flour,sugar,cocoa, baking powder, salt, walnuts, and choc. chips).
Next add soy/rice milk, melted butter, maple syrup and stir until a consistent fudge like batch appears.
Spread evenly in your bowl and microwave until the full brownie rises including the center then it is done (2 1/2 to 3 minutes).
*I got the idea to add the maple syrup from a cupcake chocolate frosting in the book VCTOTW, it seems to make this brownie extra fudgy and less cake-like. Fudgy...did I just create a word? hmmmm
*Have some left over vegan icing from cupcakes or choc. gnache to drizzle on top? Takes this brownie to the next level!
Source of recipe: I tried a bunch of different microwave brownie recipes and something was I created my own.

Very chocolaty and yummy. I used vanilla almond milk and added chocolate chips and some chopped belgium baking chocolate. It was a struggle to only eat half of it.


This was super Yummy.  I added ground flax seed and pecans instead of walnuts.  I also used light vanilla soy instead of regular.  I made one bowl with chocolate chunks, and one without.  Both were equally Yummy. This will definitely be a regular recipe in my house, as next week we will no longer have an oven (we live in Okinawa, Japanese don't use them)

Super Yummy - Thanks for the recipe.  ;)b


Glad you liked it, the choc. chips melting as you nuke it def make it more fudge-like. Also you can try removing it before it rises completely. Thanks for the review... ;)b


this was pretty good.  i made this without the chocolate chips and walnuts because i didn't have any.  i don't think it was sweet enough (also didn't add icing though), and it seemed more like cake than a brownie.  if i were to make it again, i'd add a bit more sugar and maple syrup, and definitely add the chocolate chips.

and as for serving size, this is beyond even 1 indulgent serving, in my opinion.  one bowl made 2 very large servings, if not 3 normal servings.

but overall, this is a great, quick way to get a chocolate fix.
