Ingredients

Wet

  • 1/2 cup Beet Puree (about 2  medium beets)
  • 1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (melted)

Dry

  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (for topping)
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray 8-inch by 8-inch pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Set aside. Mix all dry ingredients (except for chocolate chips) in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside. The 1/4 cup of chocolate chips will be used on top. Prepare beet puree by placing two (2) cooked beets into a food processor (or high-powered blender) for about 2 – 3 minutes or until puree is formed. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients except for 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, which will be melted following step. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Place 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into a small, microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds. After chocolate chips are melted, fold into brownie mixture. Pour brownie mixture into pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Top with chocolate chips. Bake for about 18 – 21 minutes, depending on amount of “gooeyness.”
