Triple Chocolate Muffins

Triple chocolate muffins with beets

I’ve been working SO hard on perfecting the perfect muffins with beet in them. Beets have quite an earthy flavor, and I didn’t want that to come through in a sweet treat. Turning them into triple chocolate muffins did the trick! The beets give off a very slight pink hue, that you probably wouldn’t notice until I told you there was beet in it. I think it’s super pretty!

These healthy muffins are naturally sweetened with a little maple syrup, oil free, dairy free and gluten free.

Kids love these sweet and delicious muffins. I love making them because they’re a breeze to make.

And if you love chocolate like I do, you’ll love these muffins too!

Notes

If your beet is not steamed, simply add 2 inches of water to a pot, a steamer basket, and about 2 quartered beets.  Place lid on and bring the water to a gentle boil.  Steam the beets for about 12-15 minutes, or until fork-tender (the size of pieces will determine how long).  Once fork tender, mash with a fork or blend in a food processor for super-smooth beet puree.

Would beet powder work the same for this recipe?

I’m not sure about the exact amount you’d sub or how it would turn out since I haven’t tried that. Maybe use apple sauce for the beet amount and add beet powder in? If you try it please do let me know how they turn out!

can I sub the maple syrup for a powdered sweetener? I don’t have any honey/maple syrup on hand.

Hey Devon, I am sure you could. You’d just need to increase the liquid in another place, like the almond milk to get the batter the same. If you try it, let me know how they turn out!
