Beetroot and Hazelnut Chocolate Brownie



Hi guys

Today I have a treat for with this Beetroot and Hazelnut Chocolate Brownie easy plant-based dessert recipe.

I’m a lover of all things cakey – who isn’t, right?

In fact, my main concern with focusing on a more plant-based lifestyle was that I wasn’t going to be able to enjoy the occasional (daily) cake, brownie or muffin.

I needn’t have worried!

It turns out almost anything can be made with plant-based ingredients, including these delicious chocolate brownies.

They’re not too sweet so go down very easily (I’ve eaten two while writing this post) and are easy to make using a few ingredients.

Just to make these even more tempting I made them with my four-year-old without losing the will to live and he loved them – point to me for sneaking some veggies in there!

Not great on the calories! It’s the oil.
