Beetroot Chocolate Brownies

Large choc brownies.cvr 2

Beetroot and chocolate might seem like an unusual combination, but don't knock it until you have tried it.


This is a great tray bake that has a healthy twist on the classic chocolate brownie.  Beetroot is an excellent source of iron and folate too, so lots of good reasons to get baking!
