Natural sugar substitute equivalent to 1cup of sugar *** see note below 0g
1 tspn vanilla extract 0g
4 eggs 1g
250g packet of ready-to-eat baby beetroot drained 13g
½ cup almond meal 4g
¼ cup coconut flour 20g
¼ cup flaxseed meal 0g
1/3 cup cocoa 7g
½ tspn baking powder 1g
½ tspn baking soda 0g
180g pecans finely chopped 9g
Total Carbs 96g

 

Heat oven to 160°C. Grease & line an 18 x 28 cm slice pan with baking paper.

Place butter & chocolate in a medium size microwave safe bowl & cook on low-medium for 2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds until melted & smooth.

Stir in sugar substitute & vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing in well between each addition until thick & glossy. Set aside.

Process beetroot in a small food processor until as smooth as possible. Stir into chocolate mixture.

Mix remaining dry ingredients (except nuts) together until well combined. Stir into chocolate mixture with chopped pecans & mix well. Mixture will be quite stiff.

Pour into prepared pan & smooth surface.

Bake for 45 minutes or until set. Place on cooling rack & cool completely in pan.

When cold, place in fridge for 1-2 hours. This will making cutting into squares easier.

****Note re sugar substitute****

There are a number of natural sugar substitutes available eg stevia, xylitol, erythritol that have no carbs or sugars (make sure organic & non GMO). Always read the label to be sure! Some are used in ratio of 1:1 as a straight replacement for sugar. Some are sweeter than sugar so you will need to use less. Again, check the label.

These taste like a ‘mud cake’. You won’t believe how good they are!
