Remember the single-serving recipe for brownie batter that I mentioned the other day? Well, here it is! And, trust me, it’s a good one. I make it ALL the time now.
I love enjoying this Ooey-Gooey Brownie Batter after dinner as a way to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard on calories and sugar. It’s also perfect as a pre- or post-workout snack since it incorporates a good mix of protein, carbs, and fat, which are essential for providing your muscles with the fuel they need.
Speaking of fuel…
Did you know that Silk Soymilk is a good source of protein? Yep, that’s right. With 8 grams of heart-healthy, plant-powered protein per serving, Silk Soymilk blows most other dairy-free milks out of the water. Have you ever looked at the protein content of almond milk or rice milk? Silk Soymilk has more per serving, and we all know protein is important for satiety and keeping your hunger at bay and, of course, muscle recovery when it comes to your workouts. I love these things about Silk Soymilk, but, really, I just love its smooth delicious taste. It’s my go-to milk choice in my iced coffee or when I order an iced latte. It adds so much flavor and creaminess (+ protein!) to my coffee without a lot of sugar.
So, that’s why I love Silk Soymilk so much, but now it’s time to tell you about this decadent brownie recipe. First things first: The recipe only requires 3 ingredients: Silk Original Soymilk, unsweetened cocoa powder, and coconut butter. I used Nikki’s Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter in this recipe, and it will give you the best results, but you can also substitute Silk Very Vanilla Soymilk or Silk Chocolate Soymilk + your choice of sweetener (i.e. sugar, honey) with regular coconut butter.
- 2 tbsp (heaping) Nikki’s Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter
- 1.5 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp Silk Original Soymilk
Combine above ingredients in a small, microwave-safe bowl, such as a ramekin.
With a spoon, mix ingredients until they are well combined. Then, place the ramekin in the microwave and cook for 35-40 seconds.
Remove the ramekin from the microwave and, while still warm, stir the ingredients until they form a thick, rich, and gooey brownie batter.
Grab a spoon and enjoy!

Good thing I have all of these ingredients in my kitchen… this is my post dinner treat tonight : ) Thanks for sharing!
I love the single serve recipes so I don’t overindulge. I’ve never tried soy milk. I’ll have to give it a whirl. Random question. What type of camera do you use? Your pics are always gorgeous!
It’s a Samsung camera and it’s AWESOME: http://amzn.to/1S7QF4g! It’s so easy to use and takes great pics! 🙂
@Tina: Thanks! I need something less bulky. My DSLR is too big to take places with me.
That was my same thinking! This camera is a lot smaller.
Yum!!!!!! I just have regular coconut butter, would that work? Or what else could I add to it?
Check out my post for suggestions!
How perfectly decadent! I’ve been looking for a replacement for my usual protein pudding. Thank you!
Love this! Sounds delicious.
Just three ingredients?
Mmmm, that sounds so good! Always nice to find desserts that are a little healthier, too 🙂
I bet it would be SO GOOD with a little dash of cinnamon in there.
I see Nikki’s Coconut butter everywhere. I have got to get my hands on some. Looks delish
I think I need this now! And, I never thought of soy milk being a major source of protein so that’s great!
This looks crazy good. I was planning to make some banana bread today, and I’m thinking this brownie batter would make a killer swirl add-in. YUM.
this looks awesome. I have a love hate relationship with quick, easy one serving desserts. On one hand, I can’t eat a whole batch which is good, but on the other, it makes it so easy to have one every night.. or more!
I can’t believe you made that with only 3 ingredients! It looks amazing and now I’m going to have to try it out 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Hmm, I am not trying to be negative, but I have recently heard that you should limit the amount of soy in your diet due to the higher contents of estrogen. Have you looked into that or maybe you have some additional info as to why it isn’t a bad thing? Thanks 🙂
I’m not personally worried about it (mostly because I’ve heard so many conflicting things – it really depends on who is funding the studies, ya know?), but you should definitely talk to your doctor if you’re concerned! 🙂
This looks so good! I love nikki’s in anything!
I love making single-serve desserts to cure my sweet tooth! I must try this….lunch??
Looks yummy. Could you share the nutritional info on this? Calories, carbs, protein, fat? Thanks!
Nikki’s plus Silk, yum! – We have their products in our app! Can’t wait to try out this recipe.
Wow great recipe! I love 3-ingredients desserts like this, YUM!!
Looks amazing and so does Nikki’s Coconut Butters, thanks!
Looks like a tasty light dessert.
Thanks for the recipe Tina! I love that your single served, microwave desserts don’t have a massive list of ingredients- just super simple and delicious! I’m excited to try this one tonight for dessert 🙂
Hi Tina! Just tried this and wondering if your cocoa powder measurement should be in TBSP, rather than TSP? Mine turning out pretty thin with just 1.5 TSP. Thanks for your comments back!
I used a tsp of cocoa powder, but my tablespoons of coconut butter were pretty heaping.
