Treat Yourself: Microwave Brownies

Paula Wesson, Staff Writer

Take a study break by making this quick, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate sensation. You’ll ponder how you ever studied without it.


1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces

¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 ½ cup sugar

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

¾ cup flour


SPRAY 8 inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

PLACE butter and cocoa powder in large bowl.  Microwave on high until butter is melted.  Add sugar and whisk to combine.  Let mixture cool slightly, then whisk in eggs and vanilla.  Stir in flour.

SCRAPE batter into pan.  Microwave on high until brownies are just set in center, 4-7 minutes.  Let brownies cool.


About Tori Kuebler

Tori is a technically dietitian, however please don't confuse this as having a badge stating "Food Police." Tori likes to focus on "all foods fit" and un-complicating the world's complicated relationship with food (so more like "Food Therapist" than "Food Police"?). Hopefully you find humor in her writing and a spark to go out into the world and let your tastebuds lead the way.
