Have you ever had a craving for a decadent dessert like brownies, but you just don’t feel like going through all of the effort of making a batch? It happens to me all the time. That’s exactly why I keep this great recipe in my little pocketbook of recipes. It’s for a perfectly fudgy paleo brownie in a mug that you can have ready to go from start to finish in less than five minutes. The recipe keeps things totally paleo-friendly by making some smart ingredient choices like using almond flour, cacao powder, dark chocolate chips, and almond butter over typical baking options like refined flour and milk chocolate. The end result is phenomenal brownie treat that you can indulge in without feeling guilty.

  2. Gotta say I was impressed! I didn’t realize it was 2 servings in the recipe though… um, ooops. I may have “accidentally” eaten both at once.
