Double Chocolate Beet Root Brownies {Grain Free, Gluten Free, Paleo }

Beet Root Brownies

What is it about women and chocolate?

Not to be exclusive, but I haven’t met as many men who are as passionate about chocolate as women.  But, when I hand my husband one of these tasty treats for breakfast he never complains.  My children don’t complain either, especially my 3-year old who thinks that chocolate should be at every meal.  You’d think that her love for chocolate would aid in her desire to potty train, but we won’t talk about that here.

This past summer we had an overabundance of beets in our CSA box.  And, what better thing to do with all those beets than make Double Chocolate Beet Root Brownies, right?  Beets make the body happy and they go so well with chocolate.  They aid in assiting the gall bladder, help produce stomach acid and are rich in many vitamins and minerals.   These lovely brownies are just as good as cake and can be eaten for breakfast, snack or dessert.  These beet root brownies can be easily be adjusted for the paleo/primal diet, are gluten and grain free.  They taste like heaven.

Since I don’t think it would be fair to withhold this little piece of heaven from you, I thought I’d share the recipe.  This recipe is so good you might want to share it with all of your friends.

 Now that you have made your beet cake, don’t throw away the greens!  Beet greens are some of the best cleansers out there!  You can juice them, throw them in a smoothie or make a beet green salad to reap the befits of this amazing food.


  1. Are the beets cooked before they are pureed?

  2. I love this idea. I have used rinsed and puried black beans in chocolate brownies. I think melting chocolate chips with a tiny bit of coconut or almond milk for icing would be good too.

  3. I just baked these and they are EXTREMELY moist. I baked them for around 38 minutes. They seem almost under-baked and are very gooey and soft. Is that normal? They are now sitting in the refrigerator, with paper towels underneath. They have soaked the paper towels. They are very tender and extremely oily. I’m always into moist cakes and baked treats, but these just seem GREASY. Is that regular?
