Beetroot Brownies

We all know Christmas is about excess, I’m sure I’m not the only person overdosing on mince pies and roast potatoes at the moment.  Even with the promise of never-ending chocolate resources which the festive period brings there’s always a little bit of my mind thinking about January.  When your waistline has taking a pounding from all the excess calories January is the time for repentance; cakes and puddings are out, kale and green smoothies are in. Oh yeah, and these beetroot brownies, they’re pretty good too.

Beetroot Brownies

Even with all the good intentions in the universe we all know eventually we’re going to give in, there’s only so many times you can resist the biscuit tin.   The only thing to do is anticipate your demise and plan for it.  That’s where these beetroot brownies come in.  Now I’m not going to sell these are a health food, even if I’ve tried to convince myself that they simply must contain one of my five a day.  What these brownies are good for is a nice hit of chocolate with around half the fat of a regular brownie.  Naughty but ever so slightly nicer.

Beetroot Brownies

Just remember, this doesn’t mean you can eat twice as much.  Naughty!
