Beetroot Chocolate Brownies

Time surely flies, isn't ?  Almost each and everybody will say this, I have no time, I have done nothing, OMG! time just flies.  In the last few weeks or may be last few months I have been lagging a lot in blogging and I have a lot lot to catch up.
I couldn't keep up the schedules promptly and post recipes on time.  My apologies for having Any One Can Cook on hold for long time now.  I promise that it'll be surely on next week no matter whatever the situation.

Today I'm going to post Beetroot chocolate brownies.  This is been on my drafts for a long time now, so decided to go ahead today.  This recipe is adapted from Chef in You, I don't think anybody needs introduction about Chef in you, even if you are beginner in cooking, when you follow her recipes you'll be a great cook.  Do check out her site for all yummy recipes with easy instructions.


Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes 15 to 16 squares

Ingredients:
2 medium sized beetroots
Flour- 100 g
Butter- 100 g
Sugar- 150 g
Egg whites- 3
Cocoa powder- 3 tbsp
Dark chocolate chips- 75 g
Walnuts- 10 to 12 ( optional )
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp


Method:
Peel and wash  the beetroots.  Chop the beetroots into cubes and steam it for 10 to 15 minutes until they become soft.  Puree the cooked beetroot in a blender without adding any water.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.  Beat together butter and sugar, until it looks creamy.  Beat it in the eggs one by one until it looks fluffy.  Add the beetroot puree and mix it to combine.  Sift together flour and cocoa powder in a large bowl.  Fold in the flour mixture into the egg mixture.  Finally fold in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.  Grease and line a 9 inch square cake tin.  Pour the mixture into the  prepared tin and bake it in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.  Take it out from the oven, leave it cool down in the tray and cut into squares.  Once cooled completely, store it in a air tight container.
