Makes nine, generously-sized brownies
What you’ll need
190g gluten-free plain flour
150g soft, light brown sugar
200g dark chocolate chips
60g cocoa powder
250g unsalted butter
3 medium beetroot (125g cooked and peeled)
A pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
A 20cm square baking tray
What to do
1. Preheat your oven to 180°C fan.
2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and set aside to cool.
3. In a food processor, blitz the beetroot to a puree.
4. Mix the cocoa, flour, chocolate chips and salt together in a bowl.
5. Whisk together the cooled melted butter, beetroot, vanilla, sugar and eggs.
6. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix them.
7. Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for about 18 minutes. Insert a skewer into the middle of the brownie to check it’s cooked. It should still be a little gooey but firm to the touch. As the brownie cools, it’ll continue to firm up slightly.
8. Allow to cool before removing from the tray and slicing into squares.
