IMG_3738Here’s another of Daz’s favourite recipes from Joe Wicks’ Lean in 15. These brownies tick lots of boxes: they are free from gluten and dairy*, have plenty of vitamins and fibre thanks to the beetroot, and the addition of protein powder means they will stave off the hunger pangs for longer than a regular brownie. What’s more, they are really quick to whip up – you simply bung all the ingredients in the blender and blitz. The end result is a brownie that is surprisingly light and chocolatey.

Takes: 30 minutes

Serves: about 12


  • 2 cooked and peeled beetroots, roughly chopped

  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth
