Can't BEET These Brownies!

With a toddler who was introduced to CHOCOLATE by his grandmother and great grandmother, he demands it at least once a day.... with that said you can imagine how crafty I have become. 

One of my favorite recipes to incorporate health into chocolate is Beet Brownies. These brownies have 2 cups of beets. I have also added carrots in them (in previous batches). These brownies are more of a cake consistency then actual brownies, but delicious none the less! once cooled the beet flavor completely disappears!! 

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of pureed beets
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Beat together eggs and sugar.
  2. Add oil, beets, cocoa and pudding, mix well.
  3. Blend in vanilla, flour, soda and salt.
  4. Bake in greased and floured 11 x 15 x 1" sheet cake pan for 30 minutes at 375.


  1. Do you have a pic of these so I can pin it to my pinterest?

  2. I'll have to give these a shot once my garden is up this summer. I love beets and can't wait to grow them again!
