Beetroot Brownies

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

2 eggs

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

vanilla

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 

let cool 


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.
