Grain-Free Chocolate Beet Snack Cake Recipe
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?
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.
