Slice the orange, remove seeds and place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to boil, then simmer for 1 hour with a lid on. Remove the orange from the pan and let cool. Once cool, place in a food processor or blender and blitz until smooth.

Pour the mixture into the baking tin, place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, allow to cool then slice and serve. (Optional: Serve each brownie with a slice of fresh orange.)

Servings: 16-20
Preparation Time: 1 hour

  • 8 ounces semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup beets, peeled and cooked
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Coat an 8-inch square pan with a thin coat of butter or coconut oil.

In a bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate chips, butter, and coconut oil together. Remove from heat, whisk to combine.

In a small bowl combine the sugar, ground almonds, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and cinnamon.

In a food processor (9-cup minimum) puree the cooked beet. Scrape down the sides and add the melted chocolate. Blend, scrape down, and add the eggs. Blend, scrape down, and add the dry ingredients. When batter is smooth, pour and scrape into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the dried cranberries over the top.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and sides are pulling away slightly from the pan. Let cool before cutting. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
