Peanut Butter Brownie in a Mug – This ooey gooey peanut butter brownie in a mug recipe is absolutely amazing!! Throw it all together, stick in the microwave for 1 min. and it’s done to perfection!

Servings: 1


  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp cocoa I used dark chocolate Hershey’s
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter optional
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla



  1. Add dry ingredients to mug and stir (use 12 oz. mug or larger because it will rise a bit).
  2. Add wet ingredients to mug and stir until mixed.
  3. Put tbsp. of peanut butter in middle of mix and push down a bit so it is submerged into brownie batter.
  4. Microwave for 60 seconds…done!!
  5. Note: if you allow it to cool for 5 minutes it will solidify more if you want it more cakier and less ooey gooey.

  1. My boys were excited to make this but it didn’t turn out as well as we had hoped. It was a little dry and grainy compared to the picture. It could have been our fault though as we cooked it for an extra 30 seconds or so since it didn’t seem done. Did we overcook it?
