Red Velvet Brownies

DSCF8138These brownies turned out surprisingly well..

1 cup cooked beets (approx. 2 small beets)
1 cup black beans
12 pitted dates
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
dash of vanilla


1. steam beets for 30-40 minutes. Partway through steaming I cut them into smaller pieces. I suggest dicing them before steaming and they should cook much faster.
2. Combine all ingredients in a food processor.
3. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees
4. Top with pecans, walnuts, or pistachios! Strawberries are good too!

Let me know how yours turn out! Jon says they taste like beets, I used 1 and 1/4 cup of beets..I think they tasted good!
