These brownies are dense, fudgy, chocolatey, sweet and moist. It’s crazy! For hardcore brownie lovers.. they are not the same as ooey gooey triple chocolate brownies, BUT a good healthy tasty alternative + tons of nourishing benefits. These brownies are GLUTEN- and DAIRY FREE!
Fudgy beetroot brownies
2 medium sized beetroot, cooked
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup coconut sugar (or honey/maple syrup)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup raw cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 180C/375F
Blend cooked beetroot in a food processor or hand mixer until smooth
in a separate bowl whisk eggs with coconut sugar until creamy
add rest of ingredients and combine
pour into baking dish and bake for 25-30min
The beetroots make the brownies incredibly moist, just like carrots in a carrot cake or zucchini in a zucchini cake. I used coconut sugar which you can easily substitute with brown sugar. Coconut sugar has a few more nutrients than regular sugar - calorie wise and taste wise the same as brown sugar. Instead of using regular flour I chose a mix of almond and coconut flour. This combination makes the brownies even more soft and moist and adds some extra nutrients.
