Today, I was in the mood for something chocolate-y....Yet still healthy and nourishing....I know, those words almost seem contradictory....how can we make something with chocolate healthy?
Well, as I looked in the fridge for inspiration, I found some cooked beets I picked up from Costco the other day. I buy their organic and vacuum-sealed "I Love Beets" cooked beets to add to salads and just eat as a snack. Beets are amazing for general detoxing....
Did you know that beets are also very high in folate, manganese, potassium, copper, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus and Vitamin C? Also very high in antioxidant, with serious anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits! No need to further detail beet's health benefits and why they should be added to our diets in greater amounts.
Then, the lightbulb went off!! Chocolate-Beet Cake! Or Cupcake! Or muffins! Whatever shape and form.
So I improvised and came up with this simple recipe for an AMAZINGLY decadent dessert. Or snack...Or even breakfast!
Hope you enjoy! This recipe is loaded with beets, grain-free, uses high fat and protein almond flour, antioxidant-rich raw cocoa powder, only a little coconut sugar compared to other cakes this size/weight, and is higher in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates.
Rest assured, you are doing your body some good here:)
