Dark Chocolate-Beetroot Brownies

Dark Chocolate-Beetroot Brownies

Brownies are so versatile and can be made with ingredients that children and adults wouldn’t necessarily put together with chocolate: like beetroot brownies, black bean brownies, avocado brownies, sweet potato or squash brownies, courgette brownies and also kale brownies. These might sound slightly odd, but actually these combination brownies are delicious and have added health benefits from their veggie counterparts. So explore the world of cake and vegetable combination by jumping into this recipe for dark chocolate-beetroot brownies.

Lower in calories than your standard chocolate brownie, these delicious and decadent chocolate beetroot brownies are the perfect way to get in those veggies without compromising taste! You can also make these brownies gluten free by using an oat flour and baking powder rather than self-raising flour. This easy recipe is an excellent way to get the kids involved in baking too, so the whole family can have fun in the kitchen baking sweet treats.

Here’s a Tip…

To cut down on prep time and speed the process of making your chocolate-beetroot brownies, use cooked beetroot to eliminate extra cooking time. This is especially helpful when cooking with kids who just want to eat their gooey brownies as soon as possible.

You can store your chocolate-beetroot brownies in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperture for 2 days, making these brownie squares a great fit for the lunch box as a dessert bite.
