36 mini-muffin size
dark chocolate (at least 63% cocoa solids)
cooked beetroot (approx 8oz peeled)
In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350F/175C.
Gently warm the coconut milk and chocolate together in a small pan until the chocolate melts.
Blend together the beetroot and dates.
Add the eggs to the beetroot-date mixture, one at a time and blend in.
Mix in the vanilla then the flours, baking powder and coconut milk-chocolate mixture.
Once thoroughly mixed, pour into an oiled tray, right to the top of the mini muffin mould. Bake for approx 15mins until they have risen, slightly cracked on the top, and a skewer comes out only slightly sticky or clean.
If you prefer, pour into an 8x8in tray instead. If doing so, they will need approx 30mins cooking time.
Wait until cooled a few minutes before removing from tray and cutting, if appropriate.
