Gluten Free Healthier Chocolate and Beetroot Brownies.

Chocolate Brownies, what’s not to love? I actually can’t eat rich foods, so these babies hit the spot for me on more than one level. They are healthier as I’ve cut down the butter and chocolate, they have lower in sugar, gluten/wheat free and they contain beetroot plus prunes.Today was one of those days when I was in need of a pick me up. Tired after a busy week, 32 weeks pregnant with an active toddler to amuse and a husbnad at work. So I did what I do when I’m tired…. I got busy in the kitchen. I fancied chocolate and we had some leftover beetroot in the fridge, it reminded me of a chocolate and beetroot cake someone had made once, so after a quick peek at Pinterest I set about adapting my Chocolate and prune Brownie recipe. The end result – AMAZING. These came out a whole heap better than I had expected. I tested them on the hubby who pulled a bit of a face until he bit into one, then gave it a 9/10. It’s taken a fair amount of will power for us not to eat all of them in one evening
