Chocolate Beetroot Brownies
Riverford Organics Field Kitchen. It uses less sugar than normal brownies, and no wheatflour, so is suitable for those on gluten-free diets. The reduced sugar content, and the addition of ground almonds, makes for a less crisp crust, but it tastes wonderful. If the beetroot puts you off, please don't let it! You really can't taste it, but it contributes that red tinge to the batter and adds wonderful moisture to the mix, making this a good 'keeper'. I have made a Chocolate Beetroot Cake elsewhere on the blog, so do take a look at that as well. Tasting note: these have lasted well into the week, mainly because I forgot to take a whole load of them to my friend Jess on Tuesday - sorry! However, as the week has progressed, these have just got fudgier and denser and even more chocolatey - definitely a good cake to make in advance of an event to get the full-on experience! Yummy!
