Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the beet puree, coconut oil, honey, eggs and vanilla. Process on high until completely smooth. Pulse in sugar.
  • Add remaining ingredients (minus chocolate chips) and process again until smooth and the batter has started to thicken.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely in the pan before slicing and removing.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

To make beet puree, simply blender cooked beets in a blender or food processor. Keep extra puree to add to things like pancakes, smoothies or even oatmeal!
