Chocolate Beetroot Walnut Brownies

In an attempt to make something healthy and still have chocolate, these chocolate beetroot walnut brownies are perfect. They are delicious and contain fibre from the beetroots and Omega 3s from the walnuts. I am not sure if you could count this as your one serve of vegetables for the day but it is definitely a good start!

These are delicious still warm from the oven and the beetroot is great in keeping the moisture in the brownie. You can barely notice the beetroot in there which is great for the kids. My little girl doesn't like walnuts so you can omit these or add in an alternative such as some extra white chocolate chips instead.
