Quick story before I go into the recipe for these Beet Brownies. My BFF and I constantly send care packages to each other and 80% of the time there will be bars of chocolate in those boxes. I wouldn’t specifically ask for which bars for her to send, but I would always be giddy with excitement every time I would see an Elements Truffles bar in my box.
Fast forward to the Fancy Food Show that was just on in San Francisco and I was lucky enough to connect with the team at Elements Truffles in person. They are so lovely and I wanted to celebrate finally making a personal connection with them by making these brownies.
It’s a smaller serving than normal and the flavors in the beet brownies mirror the flavors in one of my favorite bars of chocolate – beets and raspberry.
These beet brownies are very moreish and decadent and requires a glass of milk when eating them. You would never know that they are grain and gluten free.

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees and spray loaf tin with coconut spray and line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl place the almond flour, beet powder, cacao powder, baking powder and salt. Whisk until fully blended - set aside.
In a separate bowl place the almond butter, melted ghee, egg, date syrup, vanilla paste and nut milk. Whisk until fully blended.
Pour in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl and mix well with a spatula.
Scoop the batter out of the bowl into the lined loaf tin. Spread out evenly and bake for 15 minutes.
Turn off the oven and take out the brownies and top with the chocolate bar. Place back into the oven to melt the chocolate (MAKE SURE IT'S OFF BEFORE YOU DO THIS). Take out after 2 minutes and then top with some freeze dried raspberry crumbs.
Cool in the tin for 10 minutes to set and then take out and fully cool the brownies on a wire rack. Cut into 8 small pieces or 4 gigantic pieces. Enjoy!
