Eggless Red Velvet Chocolate Brownies(Beet Brownies) Vegan

My oldest is fussy eating fruits and veggies. Especially eating beets. Even we as an adults have hard time eating beets. Do we really like beets, let's be honest to ourselves. So I had an idea, of how to turn those no liking beets into a well liking irresistible beets in a form of a low fat and mouth watering and decadent chocolate brownies. This is definitely a crowd pleaser. My oldest one devour those brownies and they are addictable in a good way.

These brownies takes only 15 minutes to prepare and 35 minutes to bake. How can that be so easy?  I was inspired by http://minimalistbaker.com/fudgy-vegan-beet-cupcakes/. But then I made my own take off of beet brownies from here. I did a little cheat sheet. Quick, easy and time saver Brownies

Ingredients:
 
1 Box Vegan Brownie Mix( or for non vegans- Regular brownie mix)
1 medium sized beet(Steamed in a pressure cooker) for 10 minutes(keeps the nutrients intact
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup canola or melted coconut oil


NOTE: Once you steam the beets in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes. let it cool down. Take the skin off and then cut into small piece. In a grinder or mixer, make beet puree. You need only 1/2 cup, reserve rest for making beet cranberry chutney or a dip.

  • Add the brownie mix, slowly sift it into the wet ingredients while mixing with a hand-held or standing mixer. Beat until no large lumps remain.
  • Pour batter into liners or metal or glass baking sheet or  filling 3/4 of the way full. Bake 25 to 35minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Do not try and unwrap them or they’ll stick to the wrapper.
