So the last time we were at Costco I told Chris I HAD to have the party sized box of pre-steamed baby beets. He told me it was an impulse purchase. I told him he was wrong. I’d eat all the beets in my lunches.
Um, that’s a lot of beets. After going through a couple of packs I was beeted out.
So I did what any normal internet-loving lady would do. I turned them into dessert.
Recipe from here.
- 6-8ish pre-steamed baby beets (or real beets that you cook 1st)
- ¾ cup honey
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pan (I use olive oil in my mister). Mix everything up in a food processor.
Pour into the pan (lick the bowl too till its spotless because the batter is amazing). Bake for 45 minutes.
Let cool. Eat.
Update – I tossed the extra brownies in the freezer (to prevent myself from scarfing them all at once) and turns out they are amazing frozen! They taste sort of like a spicy cinnamon fudgesicle.
