Ingredients

4 medium Beetroot

20 Pitted Dates

3 Eggs

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

3 tbsp Agave Syrup

200g Dark Chocolate

200g Unsalted Butter

80g Buckwheat Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

100g Ground Almonds

 

  • Peel and wash the beetroot, then cut them up into 2cm chunks.
  • Place the beetroot into a saucepan with some cold water.
  • Bring the pan to the boil and then leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Once the beetroot is soft, drain the beetroot and set aside to cool.
  • Mash the beetroot until smooth once it has cooled and then set it aside.
  • Whilst the beetroot is cooking, soak the dates in boiling water for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Grease a square cake tin (25x25cm) and then line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • Chop the chocolate and cube the butter.
  • Place the chocolate and butter into a heat proof bowl.
  • Place over a pan of simmering water.
  • Melt the chocolate and reserve.
  • Attach the bowl to the K-mix Bowl with the creaming tool.
  • Drain the dates and place into the bowl.
  • Add the beetroot pulp.
  • Process on speed 2 until combined.
  • With the machine running add the eggs, vanilla extract and Agave syrup.
  • Then add the melted chocolate to the mixture.
  • Swap the creaming beater for the whisk.
  • In a separate bowl mix together the baking powder, buckwheat flour and ground almonds.
  • Then, with the machine running on speed 2, gradually pour the dry ingredients into the K-Mix bowl.
  • Once fully amalgamated, pour into the cake tin and bake for 15- 20 minutes.

Once cooked, leave to cool in the tin for 20-25 minutes, and then remove from the tin and leave to cool completely before serving.

Cooks Tip: These are fudgy brownies so when they are ready there should be a little bit of mix on a knife that is inserted in the centre of the brownies.
