These cute little Beet Velvet Muffins look and taste like red velvet muffins, but they’re much healthier! They’re pretty chewy and dense — dense with flavor, that is! The combination of beets and cocoa powder creates earthy undertones and adds an almost fruity flavor to these muffins. They’re delicious with just a pat of butter and maybe a drizzle of honey (if you’re into that), but you can totally go wild with the toppings. Almond butter, fresh fruit, and maybe even chocolate (why not?!) would all be delicious on these muffins!
Hey, everyone! I’m so glad you’re here to read along today! As you probably know if you’re subscribed to my email list —which you are, right?! 😉 — I’ve scaled back my blog posts to 4-5 times per month (about 1 per week) because I’m too busy to write or cook any more than that. However, I AM sharing bonus recipes twice a month over my newsletter, so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss all that fun food! I’m actually sending out a bonus recipe this weekend, and it’s seriously delicious. I’ll give you a hint: It’s like grilled cheese, but with a sweet potato twist!! It’s easy, fast, and delicious, so I already know you’re going to love it! I love it, and we’re Internet BFFs so we obviously love all the same things!!
Ok, back to these Beet Velvet Muffins! They’re not Whole30, which is so sad because I’m looking at the photos now while I’m on my Whole30 & I know that I can’t have any . . . It’s okay, though, because that means more for you guys! haha
I’d recommend making these muffins every chance you get. Not only are they healthy (hello blood-pressure-lowering beets), they actually look and taste good. They’d look and taste extra good if you added some chocolate chips, too (I won’t tell!). If you have kids, feed them these muffins and sneak some extra nutrients into their diet . . . or eat them all yourself and feel good about nourishing your body! 😉
That’s all I have for you today! My goal is to get two more posts out before the month ends . . . that may or may not happen. Wish me luck! I hope the rest of your day/week/etc. is sweet like sweet potatoes!!
