Wonderful gooey 4 ingredient beetroot brownie

how to make the best brownies using beetroot

Who knew beetroots would be perfect for baking? This beetroot brownie is the best brownie I have ever tasted.

My beetroots were going soft in the fridge and I needed something to make fast. So I came across this great and easy recipe for beetroot brownies.

I am a sucker for fun ingredients in brownies. Have you tried baking brownies with black beans?

I have and it tasted good although I have to admit, beetroots are so much better.

Make brownies with beetroots. And no eggs

So, try beetroots. This beetroot brownie is so tasty and gooey and wonderful. And no eggs.

So go ahead and lick the bowl and the spoon.

I was actually surprised at how cheap this brownie is to make, considering the recipe calls for a whole bar of 180-200 grams of dark chocolate. But a shake and bake brownie is more expensive and lets face it – not nearly as tasty.

This beetroot brownie is sweet and heavy but not as sweet and sickening as the shake and bake you buy.

And oh… the gooeyness…

(is that even a word?)

I totally stold the recipe from Bargain moms.

Make the beetroot brownie one day where you are about at home

However one thing that the recipe didn’t include was the cooking time for the beetreoots.

I wish I had looked more closely at the recipe before I started baking.

I wanted to bake the beetroot brownies as a dessert treat for the teenager, but started baking at  5 in the afternoon. Well… at 9 pm they were ready – way passed the teenagers bedtime, so he missed out on dessert.

But he did manage to get a piece in the lunchbox the day after.

The pureeing process of the beetroot takes time. Like 3 hours. So bake the brownies on a weekend where you are at home doing other stuff and the beetroots can be cooking on the stove.

Once the beetroots are cooked and mashed the brownies will be ready in 30 minutes.
