We all know we could use more vegetables in our diet, so why not have our cake (or brownie) and eat it too?

We’ll be the first to say that the idea of a BEETROOT brownie doesn’t sound amazing. But trust us, once you make these bad boys, you’ll be a believer. The beetroot gives them a moistness and light airy texture that is unmatched.

Beetroot is a superfood packed with essential nutrients, fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.

So roll up your sleeves, pick up some Oakley’s Beetroot, turn on the oven and get cooking!
