·INGREDIENTS·
→ 2 medium beets, raw
→ 2 bananas (very ripe is better)
→ 1/3 cup (90 gr) brown sugar
→ 1/3 cup (40 gr) cacao powder
→ 1 2/3 cup (200 gr) all purpose flour
→ 1/2 cup (100 gr) sunflower, canola or other vegetable oil
→ 1 tsp (5 gr) baking powder
→ 1 tsp vanilla extract or seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
→ 1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat your oven to 180° celsius.
Cook your beets in boiling water until a knife can easily slice through. Peel the beets and blend them with the bananas.
Mix together the sugar, cacao powder, oil, vanilla, nuts and the banana/beet mixture.
Add the flour and baking powder, and mix from the bottom up until all is combined, without over-mixing.
Grease and flour a round baking pan (ca. 20 cm) and add your cake mix. Bake for 30-40 min (test with a toothpick!).
Enjoy as is or warm with a nice scoop of coconut ice cream!
