Beetroot Marathoner Muffins
Indulging my beetroot habit I've made marathoner muffins with beetroot.
Made with oats (not flour), spiced with cinnamon and almonds & raisins for a fruit & but kick these are the best yet!
Here's the recipe ...
Preheat the oven to 180C/Fan 160C. Grease 12 holes of a muffin tin well with a little oil.
Measure out into a mixing bowl 300g oats, 3-4 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp baking soda, 50g chopped almonds (I like to chop my own whole almonds, so you have slightly bigger bits of nut) and 100g raisins, and give everything a good stir.
Melt 100g butter in another bowl mix in 3 beaten eggs, 4 grated peeled and grated beetroot (it worked out to be about 300g of beetroot), 100g light brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.
Spoon the muffin mix into the muffin tin and bake for 25 - 35 minutes until the muffins are golden and are firm to touch.
They have a look of "flapjack" in the pic, but feel more like muffin/cake when out of the tin.
