Looking for Beetroot recipes? Here’s one the whole family will love.


Choc Beet Muffins with yoghurt and raspberries!


I am always looking for ways to load more veggies into my kiddies growing bodies and these muffins are a great way to do just that. Beetroot not only adds a boost of nutrition to these muffins but it makes them lovely and moist too.


These delicious muffins can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and are great for packing into school lunchboxes. They are gluten and grain free and are naturally sweetened with the beetroot and honey. I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine does.


choc beet muffins2




2 medium sized raw beetroots

4 eggs

½ cup macadamia oil

½ cup honey

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/3rd cup raw cacao powder

½ cup coconut flour.



Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Grease 2 mini muffin trays with coconut oil.

Blitz the beetroot in a high speed blender for a few seconds or grate it. Add the eggs, macadamia oil, honey, baking soda and blend or stir well.

Add the cacao powder and coconut flour and stir until well incorporated.

Spoon into muffin trays. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool completely and top with natural yoghurt and a raspberry.

    I’m a terrible cook, but know that these flavours work well together and will endeavour to make these for the kids! It looks pretty simple too. Great recipe, would love to see more of these x

    Hi Jess

    Sorry to hear you felt like no one noticed the you were blogging less and slowed down your social media presence. On the other hand it gave you space to have, what looks like a action packed school holidays.

    Thanks for sharing the beetroot muffins I’m going to test them out this weekend. Any savoury idea to get kids eating more veggies, mine have to off zucchini slice and avoid anything green.
    Thanks Lisa

      Oh thank you Lisa, I didn’t mean it was a bad thing that no-one noticed, just that the pressure comes from myself more than anyone else! Savoury muffins with zucchini, carrot or pumpkin work really well too. I feel a new recipe idea coming on!!

    great recipe Jessica – look forward to trying it out xx

    Love trying new recipes for the kids that are healthy – will try tomorrow

  5. Rachel on July 22, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    Yum! Made these tonight – with a little substitution to suit what flours I had on hand. Also threw in a cup of cooked quinoa. They are yummy little morsels. Here’s hoping my kids enjoy them as much as me. Thank you for sharing….

    • energeticblog on July 23, 2015 at 12:27 am

      Will have to try the quinoa Rachel. Sounds yum!

  6. Michelle on July 22, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    Looks delicious. Any substitute for macadamia oil?

    • energeticblog on July 23, 2015 at 12:28 am

      You could use a light olive oil or coconut oil Michelle x

  7. Melissa Wilmot on July 22, 2015 at 7:38 pm

    As my kids have egg allergies, I was wondering do you have an alternative I could use in this receipe?

    • energeticblog on July 23, 2015 at 12:30 am

      Cooking with coconut flour requires eggs Melissa so not sure if it would work without them. You could try making a flax egg mix to substitute but it will be an experiment 🙂

  8. Liz on July 24, 2015 at 4:10 am

    I almost can’t believe they are so simple, I’ll definitely need to make them soon.

    • energeticblog on July 24, 2015 at 4:13 am

      They sure are Liz. Just proves nutritious foods don’t need to be complicated xx

    I’ve got a couple of fresh beetroots I was wondering what to do with – thanks, problem solved!!

    • energeticblog on July 27, 2015 at 2:03 am

      There is so much you can do with Beets, they are so versatile Mumma McD

  10. Sara on July 26, 2015 at 12:48 am

    Love this recipe! I made a few substitutions (olive oil instead of macadamia and spelt flour instead of coconut) and I am actually making them for the second time now! I had not used beetroot in a dessert type food before 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe Jess!!

    • energeticblog on July 27, 2015 at 2:04 am

      Thanks for sharing the substitutions Sara, they are so yummy hey!!

    I love beetroot recipes and these sound great! Did you find the coconut flour absorbed the liquid really well? I always have to use so much liquid with coconut flour or risk it becoming too dry. Love the idea of adding yoghurt! Yum! Pinned

    • energeticblog on July 27, 2015 at 2:05 am

      Hey Kelly yes coconut flour does require a lot of liquid, hence all the eggs!

    Hi Jessica – this looks great. What other oils could you sub with if you don’t have macadamia oil? I have hemp, sesame, avacado and pumpkin oil…would any of those work? I’d love to use these up before buying new ones. Thanks!
