Don’t call the gross police just yet… these brownies don’t taste like beets at all! They are moist (sorry) fudge filled bites of delicious. Scouts honor.
I added a little bit of beet powdered to the peanut butter swirl on top for some added nutrition and well… because it’s Valentine’s Day and pink is just necessary.
These brownies are RICH. Like drink a glass of milk (dairy-free of course) with the and enjoy the smooth fudgey texture as you enter a state of pure bliss kind of rich.
If you aren’t into dark chocolate…. maybe stay clear? My daughter calls these brownies adult brownies.
NOT because they’re rated R mmk?? Just because their dark rich flavor is a little advanced for her taste buds. What does a six year old know anyway!
The trick with these brownies is to not over cook them AND to let them cool completely before cutting into them. Don’t be like me. I cut into them while they were still warm and they crumbled all over.
Learn from my mistakes peeps!

Beet Powdered Peanut Butter Brownies
Fudgey peanut butter brownies with a veggie twist!
- 2 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
- 6 tbsp Water
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter + more for toppings
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil melted and cooled
- 2/3 cup Coconut Sugar
- 1 tsp Ground Coffee (or instant coffee)
- 3/4 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

In your mixing bowl, stir together the flaxseed and the water. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan and set aside.
After the 15 minutes, whisk together the flax egg with the peanut butter, coconut oil and coconut sugar until light and fluffy. About 2 minutes.
Fold in the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate bar and beet powder. The batter will be REAL thick!
Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan and press it down with your hands or a spatula to form an even layer.
In a small bowl- stir together a couple tbsp of pb (2-3) with the 2 tsp of beet powder. Drop dollops of the mixture onto the brownies batter and swirl it around to combine it will the batter.
Bake for 30 minutes before letting is cool COMPLETELY in the pan- yes, wait the hour and thank me.
Cut into square and share… or don’t!
