Beetroot and Chocolate Brownies

Beetroot and Chocolate Brownies

Beetroot and chocolate. A classic yet still unusual combination for many.

I confess I have many brownie recipes, but this one is on the top 2 of all of them.

It is rich, decadent, chocolaty but with the earthy tones of the cooked beetroot, that makes it moist and delicate at the same time.

It is slightly higher in carbs, due to the natural sugar content of the beets, but still low carb. And delicious.

I came up with this recipe after making my roasted beetroot soup https://heelsandspices.com/2017/10/roasted-balsamic-beetroot-soupsopa-de-beterraba-balsamica/ as I had some beets left.

So I though why not turn these into beetroot and chocolate brownies?

And as usual I started adding ingredients, and the final result could not be better.

It is a winner ladies and gentlemen. Try it and let me know.
