Chocolate Beetroot Muffins Recipe

In Foodie Meby eva.katona@yahoo.com8 Comments

Not much to add to this recipe really: only that it’s just like a regular chocolate muffin recipe with added fresh beetroot. 

They look fantastic, boasting with a bright red velvet colour and they are more nutritious too: packed with all the goodness of the beetroot. 

As you might know my son is extremely picky and a sensory eater too. But he did not notice any overwhelming vegetable taste, even though his receptors are pretty good to pick any hidden veg up! He kept eating them until they lasted. (I’d stay they are ok for a few days like 2-3 in a tin.)

You can use different kind of sugars, or carob powder instead of chocolate powder too.

Enjoy!
