Vegan Beetroot Brownies Whole

These Vegan Beetroot Brownies are light yet fudgy, moist and insanely chocolaty. With slight earthy flavour of beetroot, no one would guess that these have 3 beetroots in them but the moisture addition to the brownies by the beets is so goood.

Chocolate and beetroot go so well together and that’s best shown in these brownies. They add so much moisture to the brownies but i assure you, you don’t taste the beetroot in them so much.

The brownies are topped with dark chocolate ganache to take them up a notch. However, you can have the brownies without the ganache too, they’re just as good.

How to make Beetroot Puree at home?

Its sure simple. All you need to do is boil 2-3 beetroots in water till they become soft. Once soft, drain the liquid and let them cool. Blend them in the mixer to make puree.

The secret to Fudgy Brownies –

The key is to check the brownies for doneness a little before the recipe says to. The centre should feel like just set. When inserting a tooth pick to check, look for slight dense batter sticking and not runny. Even a 2 minute difference in the baking time can make your brownies cakey. Bake these brownies for 15-18 minutes for fudgy and 20 minutes for cakey brownies.
