    Grain-Free Chocolate Beet Snack Cake

  • Cook Time:
  • Recipe Description:

    The earthy and sweet beets are a great addition to this moist and nutritious chocolate snack cake. The sugar is greatly reduced because the beets impart a sweetness, plus there are a lot of eggs and protein from the coconut flour. Beets and chocolate, who knew?

    Recipe Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 9 x 13" baking dish.

    Gently melt butter in a saucepan, stir in cocoa powder and set aside too cool a bit.

    In a separate bowl, beat together sucanat, eggs, vanilla and salt. Add sifted coconut flour and baking powder. Beat until no lumps remain.

    Add chocolate mixture and pureed beets. Mix until combined.

    Pour batter into baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

    this looks so good - I am definitely going to make it! Is it 1/2 cup or 1 cup butter/oil? Reply
    • It's 1/2 cup. Thanks! Didn't realize there was a typo. Off to fix! Hope you like them! My kids gobbled them up. Reply

    can i substitute honey or sugar at 1/2 c for the Sucanat Or Rapadura? They are sweeteners, right? recipe sounds great! Reply

    Just made these tonight. Very rich and decadent, but not overly sweet. I think I could have baked it a little less- at 20 minutes the center was not done so I cooked for another 5-6 minutes and I think 3 would have been better. Thanks for great recipe to use up those farmers market beets :-) Reply

    I am curious to know whether you prefer butter or coconut oil in this recipe. I have some lovely extra-virgin coconut oil I could use, but also plenty of butter! Reply
    • I have not tried it with coconut oil, yet. I would imagine that it would be lovely. Though, I think I might add some shredded coconut on top if I did that Reply

    Instead of roasting and puree the beets, could you juice the beets, then put the beet pulp and juice into the mix? Reply
    • I think you could, though roasting the beets deepens their flavor and makes them a bit more sweet, in my opinion. I've never done it, so I can't say for sure. Give it a try! Reply
