BEETROOT BROWNIES

This brownie recipe is a rich, chocolatey and oh so delicious. Adding beetroot gives the brownie an earthy depth of flavour. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium. I have chosen to use white sugar in this recipe. Sugar substitutes can be expensive and don't aways cut the mustard when it comes to taste and after all these are a treat to relish and enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 250g dark chocolate 70% 

  • 3 medium organic eggs
