These are an old favourite that I wanted to revamp for you. Now with extra double chocolate bites for extra fudgy-ness and just overall more delicious.


INGREDIENTS (Makes 12-14):

  • 280g Spelt Flour (For GF use 200g Ground Almonds & 80g Rice Flour)
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Pinch Sea Salt
  • 115g Raw Cocoa Powder
  • 115g Coconut Oil
  • 150g Coconut Sugar
  • 200ml Maple Syrup
  • 115g Beetroot Puree (1 medium beetroot. You can use 1/2 Cup mashed banana or same measurement of apple sauce if you’re scared to try beetroot)
  • 220ml Brown Rice or Almond Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Almond Butter
  • 60g Raw Chocolate, broken into chunks


– Pre-heat the oven to 170degrees celsius
– Mix all dry ingredients together putting everything through a sieve to sift through all lumps
– Peel and chop your beetroot and add to a food processor and mix until you have a smooth puree
– Mix wet ingredients together, including the beetroot puree but leave out the chocolate chunks and whisk or blend until creamy and smooth
–Mix the wet and dry ingredients together
– Add to an oiled baking or brownie dish
– Drop the 3 tbsp almond butter on top of the brownie mixture, spacing them evenly. Using a fork or knife, create swirls throughout the chocolate
– Scatter the chocolate chunks over the top, gently pressing them into the mix so that they are half in and half out
– Bake in the oven for 15-20mins or until the a knife comes out relatively clean when poked through the middle
– Once done, take out and leave to cool for at least 15mins
– Then cut into pieces and serve

Voila! They are ready to be devoured! Enjoy! xxx

      Hi Sarah
      I think Maple Sugar would work best as an alternative too or if that’s difficult to get hold of, Maple Syrup but then might be good to add another 20g Ground Almonds so it is not too wet. Hope that works. Enjoy x
