Gluten-Free Vegan 2 Minute Mug Blondie — with Peanut Butter, Marshmallows, and Chocolate Chunks

So if you know me by now, you know that the occasional vegan marshmallow treat just has to happen (If you haven't tried this Gluten-Free Vegan Peanut Butter and Marshmallow Tart yet, you're not my friend. Just kidding. But seriously, you have to try it sometime ;) ).

Shameful confession # 1: I always aim for healthy and wholesome (and refined sugar-free) desserts these days, but marshmallows are my weakness and having mini Dandies in my cupboard doesn't help ;) . So this weekend I've been enjoying this gluten-free vegan 2 minute mug blondie recipe, made with peanut butter, mini marshmallows, and some non-dairy chocolate chunks (naturally!).

Shameful confession # 2: I'm an anti-microwave person. I never use it to heat up my food. I'm always on my husband's case for using it. I can't wait till the thing dies and we don't have to replace it. But I have to admit the appeal of a dessert ready in 2 minutes has been very intriguing for a while now and I've been resisting it as long as I could. I meant to make some pb and marshmallow cookie bars this weekend but realized last minute that I didn't have enough peanut butter for my recipe... What's a girl craving a peanut butter and marshmallow dessert to do? That's how I ended up toying around with this microwave mug blondie recipe, and gosh did it turn out good! :) . It took a few (yummy) tries and I'm here to share my results with you ;) . This is a perfect recipe for a dessert in a jiffy (I mean it literally took less than 5 minutes from start to finish), or a treat for an unexpected visitor, or a way to make just enough of an indulgent dessert without having to be stuck with all the tempting leftovers.

I'm not sure why I feel compelled to share this microwave stuff with you all, but it came out so there you have it. If you're an absolute anti-microwave person, this recipe works well as a bake as well (I actually adjusted it from a baked cookie bar recipe I make sometimes) -- just put it in a small oven safe ramekin and bake it at 350F for 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown. It won't be a 2 minute mug brownie, but it will be delicious!

  • Total Time: 4 minutes
  • Yield: 1 mug blondie
  • Category: Mug cake
  • Cuisine: Dessert

Description

An instant peanut butter, chocolate and marshamllow blondie recipe that you can make in 2 minutes in the microwave. Gooey, delish dessert in a hurry. Vegan recipe.


Ingredients

Blondie Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 ½ tbsp brown rice flour
  • 2 tsp tapioca, potato, or arrowroot starch
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tbsp non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 handful vegan mini marshmallows
  • 1 handful vegan chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Topping Ingredients {optional}:

  • 1 handful vegan mini marshmallows
  • 1 handful vegan chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Instructions

  1. Place all blondie ingredients except mini marshmallows and chocolate chunks in a microwave safe mug. Stir well to thoroughly mix the ingredients together into a uniform mixture. Fold in a handful of mini marshmallows and chocolate chunks.
  2. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave for a second and then microwave again for another 30 seconds. Repeat the process once more. Watch that the contents don’t rise too much and jump over the rim — if you see that happening, pause, remove from microwave for a few seconds and then place back for a shorter interval.
  3. If adding additional topping marshmallows and chocolate chunks (highly recommended), then simply sprinkle those on top and microwave in a similar fashion in 15 second bursts (removing the mug out of the microwave in between each burst), until the chocolate chunks have melted a bit. Alternatively, you can torch the topping if you have access to a baking torch to get those marshmallows nice and toasted! Enjoy straight away (or reheat later).
