Beetroot Brownies, Gluten free

Beetroot Brownies, Gluten free

Brownies, you just cant go wrong with them!

Perfect as an occasional treat, these brownies have approx 185 cals each.

These ‘gluten free’ brownies are really tasty & have added beetroot to make them extra healthy & also helps keep them moist. Beetroots contain nitrates which may be helpful to an athletes performance during events.  The beetroot isn’t obvious on tasting the brownies. Make the day before & store overnight in the fridge or eat straight away.
