Vegan Beet Brownies

Vegan Beet Brownies PinWe buy Vegan Beet Brownies far more than we should at Beet Box Bakery & Cafe, a local vegan bakery that’s walking distance from us. If you’re in Denver, you have to try this place. They have amazing bread, sandwiches and desserts.

One Saturday, instead of walking to Beet Box, Amelia decided to make some Vegan Beet Brownies from scratch and boy were they delicious. These brownies are so moist and chocolatey that you might have to put them behind lock and key or they won’t last a day!

Beet puree makes a great binder so it’s a good egg replacer in baked desserts. It’s also naturally sweet, so combined with the maple syrup in this recipe, you get a very rich brownie.

We topped ours with a little powdered sugar for the photo, but they don’t need any additional sweetness. It just photographed better that way.

We used coconut oil to grease the baking sheet, but you can also use nonstick cooking spray.
