Gluten Free Chocolate Beetroot Brownies

Sometimes it’s nice to have a healthier version of a naughty treat, and with my friend being Vegan and me being gluten free I thought I’d give this a try to suit both our needs. I was delighted with the results, better than conventional brownies I’d say!


  • 1 can kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 250g cooked beetroot
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla paste
  • 200g of all purpose gluten free self raising flour
  • 150g sugar
  • 90g raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 250ml almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Add the kidney beans and beetroot to a blender and blend until smooth
  3. Stir in the vanilla paste
  4. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar and cacao powder together
  5. Pour in the bean and beetroot mix and combine
  6. Melt the coconut oil in a pan and then add to the mix
  7. Add the almond milk and mix all together
  8. Spoon into a lined brownie tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes
  9. Allow to cool on a wire rack out of the tin before cutting into 9 large squares and devouring with your loved ones! Happy baking! 🍰
