SRC Reunion: Vegan Chocolate Beetroot Muffins
A few months back they founders thought it would be fun to do a reunion and I jumped at the opportunity to participate. I got my assignment, and chuckled because I knew I had this blog one other time. My assignment was The Big Sweet Tooth. Now this gal, her name is Rafeeda, lives in the country of Malabar and her blog is full of wonderful sounding recipes....BUT, I always freeze up when it comes to trying completely different flavors...will I like it, can I find the ingredients, and then it never fails, that I go to something safe...I mean really! Come on Kirstin, be brave. Haha. When I had her blog before I made chocolate chip scones. So Rafeeda, when you read this, please, please, please, suggest something yummy from your blog that would be good for a beginner to try. I thought about the stuffed buns. Those looked good. So anyways. I always think I'm not picky but then I realize there are certain flavors, spices, I'm just not sure about. LOL.
So this time, I played it safe again...oh, so not only was I struggling to decide what to make but then I kept procrastinating, and then we got sick, and then I realized I needed to post this tomorrow (Monday)...aahhhh! No time for bravery or creativity...I needed easy. I found her recipe for Vegan Beetroot Chocolate Muffins and knew that was what I was making. I love beets, I love chocolate, winner winner! Find more recipes below my recipe.
Let's get on with this recipe. I'd also like to try this with a GF flour but didn't have any. I also realized I was out of Almond milk (I was going to use this since I don't use soy milk), so they technically weren't vegan, but still a winner. Oh, I also used my Instant Pot to cook my beets (thanks Rafeeda for the tip)
With Joy Unquenchable,
