Brownie in a Mug

I pinned this awhile ago, here is the original source.  Sometimes, you need dessert.  Yes, need.  I used to buy those cakes you just added water to and made in individual portions.  They are so pricey, it was time I either came up with a new solution, or started selling organs to purchase them.  This brownie is equally as good, add syrup, ice cream, caramel....whatever, and it fills my need for sweets without requiring I then try to talk myself out of eating a pan of brownies, which never ends well.  So....for one brownie in a mug-mix 1/4 c. sugar, 1/4. c flour, 2 T. cocoa, pinch of salt, 2 T. olive oil, 2 T. water.  I mixed it in the mug itself, then you just pop the whole cup into the microwave for 1 min 40 seconds and, ta da.  Sweet tooth eliminated without totally crashing a diet.
