  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 deg. C., 350 deg. F., Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 23 x 23 cm (9 x 9 in) baking tin.
  2. Mix together the oat flour, ground almonds/almond flour, cacao/cocoa powder, flaxseed and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Place the beetroot, honey/maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and almond milk in a blender and whizz up until smooth.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Spoon into the tin and smooth out evenly then bake in the pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until firmed up. Leave to cool in the tin.
  5. To make the topping, gently heat the coconut oil, nut butter and maple syrup to melt then whisk in the cacao/cocoa powder until smooth. Pour this over the brownies then place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the chocolate to set. Cut into 9 to 12 squares then place on a wire rack.
