GOOD4U BEET BROWNIES

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium beet, scrubbed and trimmed of the ends (about 1 cup pureed)
  • ½ cup natural grocers raw honey
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter, melted (if you don’t have a way to melt it just tell them verbally)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 8x8 pan
  • Clear mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil or steam the beet until easily pierced with a fork.

Allow it to cool then chop and transfer to a blender along with the honey, butter (or coconut oil, if using) and vanilla extract.

Blend well; add the eggs and blend again until smooth. In a large bowl, sift together the remaining ingredients.

Pour the beet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.

Pour into a well-greased 8X8” pan and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out free of crumbs.

Let cool completely before cutting.

    For the first time, shopper in America are likely to make more purchases on line than in brick and mortar stores. It's a shift which has been coming for years but this is likely to be the first time it's crossed the threshold. While the effect on big retailers can be mitigated somewhat by on line offerings, it's not quite as easy on smaller, local stores.
