My desserts with healthy ingredients were going great hit amongst all of us. Now I constantly use less sugar and try to replace flour with more whole some flours. This way we can include the “healthy desserts” in our day to day meals. Most importantly children were not able to get the slightest hint of healthy ingredient and that gives me an opportunity to try more healthy ingredients in my desserts. I am waiting to try zucchini, carrots, pumpkin and ginger in my desserts. But they are not yet available in the market and winter is approaching fast so I can try them soon.
This time I settled by beetroot but that too was not available fresh. It is so amazing that how these vegetable go so well in the dessert. Hats off to the recipe developers, who have a vision to include vegetables in the dessert.
My dessert with beetroot is crinkle. Crinkles have an almost brownie like texture. But frankly I wanted to make beetroot brownie but accidently it came out as beetroot crinkle. I have a standard recipe of fudgy brownie which I often make when I don’t have any source to look out for any recipe that might be at somebody’s place or on the sudden demand of children. This recipe in on my tips and in order to add beetroot in my brownie I replace the melted chocolate with beetroot but the batter came out as a cookie dough type so I decided to bake them as cookie but the result was crinkle. All well that ends well so no matter whether they are brownie, cookie or crinkle. They were absolute delicious. Seeing their texture I also decided to make some whoopie Pie by adding some filling. Whoopie pie too have a cake like texture but they are made like a sandwich with some filling In it.
On everybody’s demand I gave one bite to each of them out of one crinkle to taste so that I can make whoopie pie out of the remaining but they liked it so much and they didn’t spare any.
