Beetroot chocolate brownies

      At one point of time, I had stopped baking or rather restricted cakes to only certain occasions, But when I learnt about substituting with low fat and healthy ingredients, I no longer feel too guilty about this especially when it comes to my kid. And I feel that homemade ones are much better than the store bought ones. Using atta or whole wheat flour in another thing I have become quite comfortable with.

       I was quite eager to bake brownies with beetroot when I saw in DK and Madhuram’s place few days ago. So my recipe is kind of inspired from both of them. We enjoyed this one and particularly loved its deep red colour. Quite a brownie fan I am now, I have baked a lot of them and will be posting them soon. So keep coming and you will just fall in love with them just like me!!

  1. Notes- For the beetroot puree- Peel and chopp 2 beetroots.Then pressure cook them till they turn very soft. Then blend it in a blender to a puree.
  2. Beat the butter ,olive oil and sugar till it turns creamy. Add in the egg and mix thoroughly. Next add the beetroot puree and mix well. Mix the dry ingredients together(atta,oats,baking powder,cocoa powder). Add this flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well with a spatula. Now fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter in a prepared greased tin.Bake this in a preheated oven at 180c for 25 to 30 minutes .Check if the cake is done by inserting a skewer in the center. Allow it to cool in the pan. Slice into bars or squares.
