the best chocolate and beetroot brownies











When I first saw this recipe for chocolate and beetroot brownies, I wasn't too sure. Beetroot with chocolate didn't sound like a good combination to me! I am a lover of carrot cake though so for a change I thought I would try these out. There is nothing better than a brownie when it's cold for a bit of comfort.

Well I am so glad I did. The beetroot makes the brownies really moist and sweet and adds a lovely texture. It was hard not to have more than one piece at a time! Give it a go, you will be pleased with the result.

This yummy recipe is from the River Cottage website. Enjoy!

  3. I did recently come across recipes combining beetroot and chocolate, but I haven't been brave enough to try any. I've used carrots, pumpkins and zucchini in cakes, but beetroot...? It intrigues me and scares me at the same time. Plus, I have an inherent distrust for internet recipes (I did find a couple of keepers though). Oooh...I want to try this but I'm too chicken to!
