[Secretly Healthy] Red Velvet Brownies


·1/4 cup oats
·1 cooked beet
·1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
·1/3 cup almond milk
·1/4 cup melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
·1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
·1/2 cup pure maple syrup
·1/2 teaspoon baking powder
·1/4 teaspoon salt
·1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·1/2 cup chocolate chips or cream cheese frosting, for topping


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a food processor or high powered blender, blend the oats, cacao powder, salt, and baking powder until a flour-like texture is formed. Next, add in the milk, vanilla, oil and maple syrup. Blend until fully combined. Lastly, add in the cooked beet and black beans, then blend until mixture has formed a thick batter, adding more milk if necessary. Stir in the chocolate chips, if using. Pour the batter into a small brownie pan lined with parchment paper. Smooth the top with a spatula and sprinkle more chocolate chips on top, if desired. Bake in the oven for 22-25 minutes or until fully cooked. Let cool for 15 minutes, then spread cream cheese frosting on top, if using. Slice into square and enjoy!

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X
