Ingredients needed and substitutions
Almond Flour - I used King Arthur Almond Flour but you can use your favorite brand.
Almond flour is often used in baking as a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat flour. It is made from finely ground blanched almonds, and it has a nutty flavor and a slightly denser texture than wheat flour.
When it comes to brownies, almond flour can be a great option because it adds a delicious nuttiness and richness to the recipe. It also gives the brownies a moist and fudgy texture, which many people prefer.
Additionally, using almond flour can increase the protein and healthy fat content of the brownies, making them a more nutritious treat.
Another benefit of using almond flour in brownies is that it is lower in carbohydrates than traditional wheat flour, which can be important for people who are watching their carb intake.
However, it is important to note that almond flour is not a perfect 1:1 substitute for wheat flour, as it behaves differently in recipes and may require some adjustments to the recipe to get the best results.
Maple Syrup - Try using a sugar free maple syrup to lower the calories and sugar free is 0 points on WW for 1 tablespoon.
Optional Protein Powder - You can easily turn these into fudgy protein brownies by adding a scoop of Orgain Creamy Chocolate Fudge Protein Powder.

If you want fudgy brownies, you'll want to use a recipe with a higher fat content, less flour, and fewer leavening agents. You'll also want to mix the batter gently and not over-bake the brownies, as this can dry them out and make them more cake-like.
Warmed up. One tasty way to serve your brownies is to heat them up ever so slightly until they are warm and gooey throughout, and then serve them with your favorite ice cream flavor.
If you plan on consuming the brownies within a day or two, they can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. However, if you want to store them for longer, refrigeration is recommended. Place the brownies in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- Use a microwave-safe mug that is at least 12 oz in size. This will ensure that the brownie mixture doesn't overflow when cooking.
- Mix the ingredients thoroughly to ensure that the batter is smooth and evenly mixed. This will help the brownie cook more evenly.
- Don't overcook the brownie. Microwave cooking times can vary, so start with a shorter cooking time and increase as needed until the brownie is cooked through.
- Let the brownie cool for a few minutes before eating. This will help it set and prevent it from burning your mouth.
- Top the brownie with a low-calorie whipped cream or fruit to add some extra flavor without adding too many calories.
- Enjoy your microwave mug brownie as a treat in moderation, as even low-calorie versions can still be high in sugar and fat.
