Moist & Chewy Beet Brownies

These delicious moist brownies are fudgy in the middle and crispy on top. By adding some freshly grated raw beets, the brownies stay soft. Since the brownies are quite sweet, a fresh raspberry sauce will taste great with it!

No flaxseeds? You can also use 2 eggs instead. In that case, you can leave out the oat milk too.

Serve with..

  • Yoghurt Ice Cream or vegan ice cream
  • 125 gram Raspberries 1 cup (+ some extra)
  • ½ Lemon
  • 1 tbsp Powdered Sugar or more to taste



  • Preheat the oven on 170 degrees Celsius or 338 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the flaxseeds to the oat milk and let it stand for 5 minutes.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a small pan on a low heat.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to peel the raw beet. Then grate the beets above a bowl.
  • Slightly butter the baking tin and place a non-stick baking paper in there. This will help to remove the brownie from the tin later.


  • Add the cornstarch, sugar, flour, cacao and instant coffee to another bowl. Mix all these dry ingredients. You can also add a pinch of salt and some chili flakes.
  • Pour the melted coconut oil in the boil of the grated beet. Add the flaxseed/oat milk mixture to this as well. Mix it all together.
  • Then mix the bowl with dry ingredients with the bowl of wet ingredients. Once mixed, you can pour the batter in the brownie tin.


  • Bake the brownies for about 35-45 minutes in the preheated oven. Let them cool down completely before taking them out of the tin.


  • Let's make a quick raspberry sauce! Add the raspberries to a deep plate and smush them with a fork. Add the lemon juice and powdered sugar. Mix it all until you have a smooth sauce! You can use a blender or food processor for this as well.
  • Serve the brownie with the ice cream, fresh raspberries and the sauce!
