Coat a large coffee mug lightly with cooking spray. Store in the freezer until ready to use.

Combine 4 tbsp. flour, 4 tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. cocoa, 1/8 tsp. baking powder and 1/16 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Sift out any clumps.

Add 3 tbsp. water and 3 tbsp. oil to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.

Fill the chilled coffee mug to the halfway point with the brownie mixture.

Drop in 3 tsp. of peanut butter and stir gently.

Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the center of the brownie is lightly set.

Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on top of the brownie while it is still warm.

Allow to cool for 3 minutes. The coffee mug should be warm to the touch when ready. Serve warm.

  • You may need to increase the cooking time depending on your microwave's settings.
  • Place a paper towel on the bottom of the microwave in case of spillage.
