Choccie Beetroot Brownies

Putting my coconut flour to good use with these delicious brownies.

Once again, I’m keeping these nut-free (with school lunches in mind) but you can go ahead and add some nuts in there for some crunch (I bet walnuts or even pecans would work perfectly).

Don’t shy away from this recipe because the thought of beets in a dessert doesn’t do it for you! Adding the beetroot is more about contributing to the moisture rather than to the flavour, so don’t panic .. the brownies won’t taste as weird as they sound. (Think carrot cake for example … same thing really)

Plus, with all the benefits beetroot brings to the table, if your little ones take to them then you’re laughing!
