I’ve partnered with one of my favorite chocolate makers Elements Truffles to share this Beet Brownie recipe.

Quick story before I go into the recipe for these Beet Brownies.  My BFF and I constantly send care packages to each other and 80% of the time there will be bars of chocolate in those boxes.  I wouldn’t specifically ask for which bars for her to send, but I would always be giddy with excitement every time I would see an Elements Truffles bar in my box.

Fast forward to the Fancy Food Show that was just on in San Francisco and I was lucky enough to connect with the team at Elements Truffles in person.  They are so lovely and I wanted to celebrate finally making a personal connection with them by making these brownies.

It’s a smaller serving than normal and the flavors in the beet brownies mirror the flavors in one of my favorite bars of chocolate – beets and raspberry.

These beet brownies are very moreish and decadent and requires a glass of milk when eating them.  You would never know that they are grain and gluten free.
