I admit; sometimes I have a ‘sweet-tooth’. Wanted to find somewhat of a healthy way to enjoy the sweet side of things without feeling guilty. Made my staple beet/carrot drink to last me throughout the week. Hence, I reserved the pulp of this refreshing combination drink. I reckon carrot/beet cake was on my mind as I whipped up this healthy and sweet goodness.
Decided to make a batch of brownie from same. With additional ingredients of:
- Mashed ripe bananas (for natural sweetness)
- Sugar (2 teaspoon)
- Eggs (2 med)
- Oats (1 cup)
- Olive oil (1/2 cup)
- Whole-wheat flour (1/2 teaspoon)
- Baking soda (1/2 teaspoon)
- Cranberries (1/2 cup)
- Powdered ginger (1/4 teaspoon)
- Cinnamon (1 teaspoon)
- Salt (1/4 teaspoon)
Baking pan was lined with parchment paper for easy retrieval and clean-up. After spraying with a little Pam oil, brownie batter was baked in pre-heated 375 degrees fahrenheit for about 25 minutes. After cooling, brownie was sliced in small portions.
Each bite was a sweet delight.
