A 5-ingredient protein brownie made with frozen cherries, vegan protein and cocoa powder, and coconut flour.
Add the cherries to a mug or small bowl and microwave for 60 seconds.
Add the apple sauce. Stir well.
Add the dry ingredients to the mug and stir until everything is evenly mixed. Some small chunks of cherries should remain. (A rubber spatula makes easy work of this.)
Spread the brownie batter evenly in the bottom of the mug. If you want to remove the brownie from the mug after, you can transfer the batter to a second mug or bowl sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Microwave for 60-75 seconds or until the center looks nearly cooked. It's better to undercook than overcook with protein brownies.
Top with additional cherries, dairy free whipped cream, or other toppings, if desired.
