Wash the chopped beetroots and cook them until they are tender. Now put them in a blender. Process the chunks until they become lump-free puree. Set it aside
Preheat your oven to 175°C. Line a brownie pan with a parchment paper. If you don’t have the paper, grease the pan with oil or butter generously.
Take a bowl, and put all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix it well. In another bowl, take beetroot puree and add sugar and vanilla extracts to it. Make sure to combine all the ingredients well.
Now gradually, combine ingredients from both the bowls together. Keep stirring but avoid overmixing. To this batter, add chocolate chips and combine all the ingredients.
Pour the beetroot brownie batter into the papered/greased baking pan and spread it evenly. Carefully keep the pan in the preheated oven and bake the beetroot brownies for 30-35 minutes. To check if they are done, insert a toothpick in the centre. If it comes out clean, they are baked.
Once the baking pan cools down, cut the beetroot brownies into squares and garnish them with chopped nuts. And voila! Your beetroot brownies are ready to serve!
