Red Velvet Muffins

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Beetroot is not my favourite and don't like them either cooked or raw and was looking at ways to include them in my diet which could be tasty and enjoyable

I am sure most of you would love a red velvet cake but most store bought cakes are loaded with sugar, refined flour and artificial colours just adding empty calories to your diet with absolutely no nutrition.

This recipe is easy to make and a healthy version to red velvet with a hidden vegetable in it which is difficult for anyone to know. And all the bad stuff(ingredients ) are substituted with whole wheat flour , almond and coconut oil (both healthy fats) and jaggery .

I've discovered that beet retains the red colour in an acidic environment and adding a bit of lemon juice does the trick. Vinegar would work well too but I prefer freshly squeezed lemon.

Also since I have turned a vegetarian recently I prefer to make eggless cakes and this cake turned out moist and light texture with no taste of beet at all
