Chocolate Beetroot Brownies (Coconut Flour)

IMG_6715

The smell in the kitchen when I was baking these was just divine!  If you are trying to sell a house, bake a batch of these for an enticing smell!  The beetroot gives the brownies a very moist texture and are much better the next day.

You could alway add chunks of chocolate to these to make them extra chocolately, but I was trying to keep the carbs down as low as possible by using just cocoa powder.
