Gluten-Free Beet Brownies

Just in time for Valentine's Day (or any other day you need chocolate) I present the BEET BROWNIE!
I am no chocolate lover.....I know......gasp, shock and awe.  These are pretty good, you don't taste the beets at all, I am no beet lover either.  So why did I attempt this recipe if it holds nothing I am drawn to in the taste realm.....well, my kids love brownies, so here it is. 

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free
2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
4oz bittersweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
1/2 cup gluten free flour mix of choice
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Beet Puree is sooooo pretty.
1/2 cup beet puree






First, preheat your oven to *350.  Combine butter and oil in a pot and melt them together, then add chocolate chips. 

Melt the chocolate chips and Earth Balance together.
You should have a nice chocolaty looking sauce.
Turn off heat and let that sit while you mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Add the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. 
Now back to the pot of melted chocolate on the stove.....add the sugar, vanilla extract ,and eggs.  Mix well then pour it over the flour mixture.  Fold in the beet puree, you can add nuts to your mix at this point if you HAVE to have them.  Pour your completed brownie mix into a greased brownie pan, or a 9x9 pan.  Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
