Beet Brownies?!

I always see beets at the farmers market, and never know what to do with them. I do now!! One of my friends on Facebook made up this recipe and posted photos with a review - looks fab! Do you dare?

Beet Brownies

2 medium local, organic beets

Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownie mix
Cayenne pepper

Peel, steam and puree beats
Add to the brownie mix, substituting for water, oil and egg; stir well to combine
Sprinkle with cayenne and cinnamon to taste
Bake for regular amount of time, according to package and voila!

Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!

Love, Mer
