Recipe (Improved): Just Beet it Brownies

Brownies | February 25, 2015 | By

I have seen a lot of brownie recipes pop up recently and it made me think about my healthier version I made with beetroot and how I wanted to revise it. I did like the original but I wanted them to be more decadent because that’s how brownies should be, right?

I added more chocolate, so they aren’t as healthy, but they’re brownies so who cares, right? They’re  more moist than my originals and you’ll still get that earthy beetroot taste coming through, which goes so well with the chocolate. 

These would make the perfect gift for your loved one at Valentine’s Day especially if they’re a fan of beetroot.

    Wow these are awesome pictures. I love chocolate, or it loves me, still figuring that out.

    I usually make savory dishes but this is one worth trying I guess. For now I’ll just drool over these pictures.
