This is a typical chocolate cake in a mug recipe. But, I substituted the flour for cornstarch, which produces a silky finish with much less carbs and I substituted the butter for fat free mayo. This lowers the fat, but the big thing it does is turns it from a cake like texture to a heavy, dense brownie texture.
So, it's a dessert, not diet food, but it's one that's not going to break the bank. The diet bank. That made more sense in my head. Oh, and it actually tastes good. Like rich, decadent good.
Also, I used sugar free chocolate chips! Yeah!
Scrape the melted chocolate mixture into this and stir it up slightly.
Add another 1/2 oz of chocolate chips. They won't be melted and mixed, so after it cooks, you will have melty chocolate spots throughout the brownie.
Then, all you have to do is lightly oil a large coffee mug and scrape all this chocolatey goodness into it.
