Beetroot may seem like an unusual ingredient in these brownies but it adds a lovely sweetness to the brownies as well as keeping them really moist. Trust me when I say you definitely can’t taste the beetroot in this brownie!

Serves: 4



  • 4 eggs
  • 150g coconut palm sugar
  • 250g beetroot, boiled, cooled & grated
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 75g cacao powder
  • 300g almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100mL olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Add eggs, coconut palm sugar and grated beetroot to mixing bowl and mix together well. Add remaining dry ingredients — pinch of sea salt, cacao powder, almond meal and baking powder — along with olive oil and mix together until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Pour mixture into greased brownie tin and bake in oven for 20–30 mins or until firm.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
