Chocolate Beetroot Lavender Brownies Recipe. Vegan.




Some recipes are so complicated and they use oil, which is highly calorific and refined sugars and eggs and so on but these brownies are completely Vegan, refined sugar-free and have no oil or dairy products in and are even made with gluten-free ingredients. They are immensely tasty and feel really indulgent on the tongue and as long as you are sensible, you can enjoy them on a calorie controlled diet and still lose weight, just as I have been doing.

I am really, really proud of these moist and sophisticated brownies, where a lot of thought has gone into the ingredients chosen and we have specifically used Fairly Traded products, with organic and sustainable ingredients sourced from local and independent wholesalers.

Just a note about the way I set out my recipes:
I find the way that recipes are conventionally written,  are not the way that I like to follow them! Normal procedure is to mention the pre-heated oven somewhere in the middle when you need to put the batter in, instead of mentioning the pre-heated oven as one of the first things you should do. So, here's my recipe, written as I and I am sure, any logically-minded person would like to follow it.


1/ Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

2/ Take a 9" x 9" square brownie tin, line with grease proof paper.

3/ Place the following ingredients into a blender:

1 x Cup of Sliced Cooked Beetroot

1 x Cup and 2 x Tablespoons of Buckwheat Flour

1 x Cup of Raw Cane Sugar

Half a Cup of Cocoa powder.

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/2 a teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda

1 x teaspoon of Doves Farm Gluten Free Baking Powder.

1 x teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

A pinch of ginger.

1 x a cup of water.

4/ Blend it all together, I use the smoothie setting on my blender.

5/ Smash up a bar of Seed and Bean Lavender Chocolate and stir it into the mix. (if you want another flavour, then just replace the Seed and Bean Lavender Chocolate with something else, I sometimes use Lemon and Cardamom, also from Seed and Bean and sometimes I use a Lemon, Ginger and Black Pepper bar from Equal Exchange).

6/ Then pour the whole mixture into the brownie tin and cook for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, carefully cover the pan with foil and cook for another 10 minutes. 

Don't forget, you can buy all the ingredients you need in our shop, online and instore.

Enjoy but if you can't be bothered to make them yourself, just pay us a visit in Shepton Mallet and we will make them for you.
