Just beet it! (part 3)

Beet Brownies (based on the recipe from The Sneaky Chef to the Rescue cookbook)

6 T butter
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 T vanilla
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c beet puree
1/2 c all- purpose flour
dash salt
2 tsp baking powder

Optional- 1/2 c mini chocolate chips or nuts 

Slowly melt chips and butter using double boiler method (I used a glass bowl on top of a pot with slightly boiling water.)

In another bowl blend eggs, vanilla, sugar and puree. Add to chocolate mixture and blend completely.

In mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients, then add chocolate mixture. Pour into bottom-only greased 8x8 glass pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean (I've found that if I wait until it is completely clean, the brownies are too dry.)

Make sure brownies cool completely before cutting with a plastic knife. Believe me, they will cut much nicer with a plastic knife than any other! Yum!
