Red Velvet Beetroot Brownies


I had a big craving for brownies this week and was determined to make something that I could sneak a little veg into. I must say I have tried sweet potato brownies before and wanted to try something new. I was tossing up between beetroot and zucchini and ended up making these yummmmmm dark choc and beetroot brownies. They came out really nicely- great texture and flavour and is even better with some melted choc drizzled on top!



1 large beetroot cut up , roasted and cooled

1/2 cup cacao powder

1/3 cup dark choc pieces (I used lindt 90%)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

1/3 cup coconut oil melted

2 eggs

pinch of salt

3/4 cup almond meal

3/4 cup coconut flour

2 tbsp rice malt syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Cut up the beetroot into small pieces and cook until soft (may take around 40 minutes)
  2. Take out the beetroot and let it cool
  3. Blend the beetroot with all other ingredients until well combined
  4. Scoop the mixture into a tray and smoothen so it is evenly dispersed
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until you can poke a knife in the mixture and it comes out clean
  6. Cut into squares and drizzle with melted choc or enjoy with some coyo, berries or topping of choice!
