If you're looking for a healthy brownie recipe, this one is for you.
Full of oxidizing beetroot and the humble Omega Rich Flax Seed, it makes it a super healthy alternative to store bought, sugary brownies.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/ gas mark 4
In one bowl, add the flax seeds and 4 tbsp of water, allow to combine.
Take the whole beetroots (You can either buy these whole or cook them in boiling water for 45 mins, allow to cool and peel)
Either finely Chop the beetroot into small tiny pieces or Add to blender and pulse until smooth puree.(about 90 seconds)
add 3 tbsp of beetroot water or regular water and set aside.
Next mix the flour, baking powder and cocao powder and set aside
Cream the butter and sugar in a separate bowl and add the flax seed mix and vanilla essence.
combine both the dry and soft mixture and mix well.
Add the flax seed egg and beetroot and combine all the ingredients until a smooth brownie batter.
The mixture should be a soft, cake like mixture
(add more water if necessary or plant based milk if you like)
Once the mixture has been combined, roughly chop the chocolate or grate it (personal preference) and add to mixture.
Grease a loaf tin or thick oven tray and add the mixture, spreading evenly throughout.
Cook for 45-50 mins, keeping an eye on mixture (oven's vary) and remove when toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to rest for 10 minutes out of oven and remove from tin.
Cut until thick slices (should serve 6-8)
