Low Fat Beet Brownie Bites Recipe Notes

No need to cook beets to make these brownies as many grocery stores now carry pre-cooked beets (which is what I used)!

If you prefer to cook your own beets, wrap two or three beets in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake about 45 minutes in a 400F degree oven, or until beets are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove beets from oven and allow to cool before removing the skins.
