Gotta love a brownie every now and then, and these red velvet brownies are just to DIE for. Plus you get a sneaky serve of veggies too! If you like these then you’ll also love my Raw Red Velvet Mud Cake or my Red Velvet Bliss Balls!

Recipe Type: GF, DF, Vegan Option

Serves 10 brownies
Time 30 min



  • 1 C grated beetroot
  • 1/2 C almond meal
  • 1/2 C hemp protein (can substitute for your favourite protein powder, or more almond meal)
  • ½ C Raw Cacao powder
  • 1 organic, free range egg (use flax or chia egg for vegan)
  • ½ C milk of choice
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 3 T melted coconut oil or macadamia oil
  • Sweetener of choice to taste
  • optional: handful of chopped nuts (I love walnuts!)
  • optional: handful of chopped raw chocolate

Optional Icing:

  • 1/2 C Raw Chocolate
  • 1/2 C Coconut Cream
  • Sweetener of choice if desired.


  1. Preheat oven to 180degC and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
  2. Mix all Brownie ingredients together in a big bowl, making sure they’re all well combined.
  3. Transfer mixture to lined baking tray and spread out evenly.
  4. Bake for 20-30mins (depending on your oven) or until cooked to your liking (some like their brownies gooier than others). 
  5. While the brownies are baking – make your icing.
    1. Melt raw chocolate in a double boiler.
    2. Stir in the coconut cream and sweetener.
    3. Allow to sit and firm-up slightly.
  6. Once brownies are cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool completely before icing.
  7. Remove unsliced brownies from the baking tray and spread the icing evenly over the top. Slice into appropriate brownie-sized portions and enjoy! Store in the fridge for a few days in an air-tight container if needed.
