Moist, delicious, easy to make with a tasty chocolate base and beetroot for natural colour. The zucchini and beetroot make this brownie moist and a healthier alternative to standard red velvet cakes.

It is refined sugar, gluten and lactose free and can be adjusted for low FODMAP. This is great for dessert or anytime you need to bake for large groups.
