Feel Good Recipe – Vegan Beetroot Chocolate Brownies!

By Expatcucina

I left you with a Feel Good Recipe last week and here I am this week with a new one!

The last week and weekend has been so hectic for me with lots of work to get done at the office and cooking show at Design Shanghai for V-zug. This last one was a real blast and I had SO much fun cooking with V-zug team and appliances!

But this week, we are back on healthy recipe ideas to make you Feel Good! This recipe is the perfect snack for those of you who can't give up on something sweet, yet want to keep an eye on the scale and have a healthy and nutritious diet.

These brownies are SUPER fudgy, thus when you stick a fork in them it won't test clean. Let them rest for a long time (30 minutes-ish) before cutting into them in order to give them a chance to set up. You don't need to worry about these being "under-cooked," because they're vegan...as in no eggs...as in you won't get sick...so no excuses, drink the batter!!!

I DID
