Beetroot chocolate brownies – wheat, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free

These beetroot brownies aka red velvet brownies are pretty as a picture and super yummy.  They are wheat, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and will satisfy any sweet tooth.  Serve them as they are for a rustic dessert or with a choc nut crumble and candied beetroot for a more refined look.  My daughter is not a fan of beetroot but adores these brownies. (I’ll admit, I haven’t told her that I use 1½ cups of beetroot puree…but some secrets are worth keeping).
