Beetroot has a huge array of health benefits, especially raw. Combining it with a selection of nuts and seeds, it's the perfect guilt free treat to have in the fridge for when those sugar cravings appear or you get the snack attacks! If you want to make it even more healthy, leave off the icing (but it's divine with it on!). This recipe is a modified take on Dr Libby's Raw Beetroot Mudcake as I've used sunflower, pumpkin seeds and almonds instead of brazil nuts which are more economical, along with the icing being completely different but I highly recommend it as it's totally divine!

    Hi Wick,
    These look amazing! I have everything on hand, apart from psyllium husk. Is there anything I can substitute for it? Thanks, Suzanne

      Hi Suzanne, they are incredible! Just leave it out, it’s only for health benefits, but it won’t impact the success of the slice. Enjoy!
