Red Velvet Brownies

Red Velvet Brownies #vegan #glutenfree #pamelawasabi_05Red Velvet Brownies, but I like calling them Pink Blondies better. I went to the kitchen with the idea of making something hot pink. This was the result. Chickpea brownies spiced up with some hot pink awesomeness, of course, from beets.

Brownies de Terciopelo Rojo [perdónenme la traducción, pero no se cual es el termino correcto en español, si saben me avisan 😉 ] Quería hacer algo de color fuerte, y fue con esa idea que me dirigí a la cocina y preparé estos brownies rosados.

A couple things to have in mind when baking them. If you bake them too long the hot pink will not be as bright. The bright color is provided by the antioxidants from the beets. You will literally bake the antioxidants off if you leave the brownies too long in the oven.
When the time’s up, the red velvet brownies will still be runny. But don’t worry, they will become harder and cake-like as soon as they cool down. So for this recipe, it’s important to follow the instructions for oven time.

And one more thing, I decorated the brownies with raw oats on top. If you [and your friends] are going to eat the brownies on the same day you can sprinkle them with the oats as garnish, if you are planning to save them for later, do not add anything else on top. The oats will go bad faster than the brownies.

Un para de cosas para tener en cuenta cuando vallan a preparar estos brownies. Si los dejan en el horno por mucho tiempo, el color rosado fuerte se desaparecerá. El color rosado lo logre usando remolacha. La remolacha tiene ese color rosado y divino gracias a su alto contenido de antioxidantes. Al calentar la remolacha estamos calentando los antioxidantes y entre mas los cocinemos, chao colores fuertes. 
A los 30 minutos después de haber calentando los brownies ellos todavia estarán “crudos” pero no se preocupen que al enfriarse tomaran la textura de brownie, y estarán listos para devorárselos!

  1. These brownies/ blondies look absolutely scrumptious. You’re site is a real inspiration. I’m currently using the same theme and attempting to optimise it to a simpler layout. Do you have any tips?
