Beet muffins?? What??
Well, just like the zucchini in zucchini bread and the carrots in carrot cake….beets can be a delicious add-in to all kinds of baked goods! They add moisture and all the good stuff that beets have to offer. Don’t like beets? I never did either until I started playing around with different ways to prepare them. Now I love roasted beet strings, baked beet chips and these Beet, Oat & Chocolate Muffins!
When these muffins come out of the oven, they smell chocolatey with a slight aroma of the earthy beets. When you bite into them, they’re surprisingly light and moist with a rich chocolate and very mild beet flavor.
