Wet Ingredients

Chocolate Frosting


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • First, steam the beet while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Peel and chop the beet into ½-inch pieces. Place in a steamer basket over boiling water, covered, until the beet is easily pierced with a fork (about 10-15 minutes). Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting by combining the cacao, maple, and coconut oil in a small bowl, until smooth and creamy. Set aside in the fridge to firm up while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
  • When the beet is done, blend all wet ingredients together in a blender or food processor until a smoothie-like consistency forms. Set aside.
  • Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well. Add the wet to the dry and mix again until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour batter into an 8x8 greased or parchment-lined pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until firm.
  • Let the brownies cool for 10 minutes before frosting, cutting, and serving. If the frosting is too hard to spread, let it sit out for 5 minutes or so until it becomes easily spreadable.
