Foodie Mumma Ren’s Tips:

  • You can add in chocolate chips to the mix as well for a different twist on the original recipe.
  • These freeze well and are perfect for school lunch box snacks.
  • You can omit all of the sugar if you are wanting a sugar free option. The beetroot makes the muffin sweet enough.
  • Split in 2 and fill with cream cheese icing for a naughty treat!
