Beetroots are considered a superfood because they’re jam packed full of nitrates which help to increase blood flow. They’re also full of potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, folic acid, protein and antioxidants. A right powerhouse!
When she’s not lifting heavy weights over her head at CrossFit Chester and CrossFit 1664, Lindsay aka Lean Bean Nutrition bakes delicious brownies. Here’s her latest recipe.
1.) Preheat oven to 180C

5.) Pour into a lined tin, drizzle with additional peanut butter and white chocolate chips
6.) Bake for 15-18 minutes
