BEETROOT CHOCOLATE 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. You may notice that I have chosen to use white sugar in this recipe, that's because in short, sugar is sugar. Sugar substitutes are not always the healthier option and after all these are a treat to relish and enjoy!

  • 3 medium organic eggs
