I am going to be the worst mum, and by that I really mean I am going to be the best mum because I am SO good at sneaking vegetables into everything. These muffins are one of the best chocolate muffins ever. You would never even know there is beetroot in them and they taste just amazing. These can also be made nut-free by substituting the ground almonds for sunflower seed meal, or any other gluten-free flour alternative.


Quantity Ingredient
2 1/2 tablespoons linseed meal
90g raw cacao powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
130g buckwheat flour
100g ground almonds
30g arrowroot flour
or tapioca flour
225g coconut sugar
or 250ml maple syrup
100g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids), chopped
160ml coconut oil
250ml coconut cream
1 medium beetroot, peeled and grated
1 pinch sea salt flakes
150g mixed frozen berries


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Combine the linseed meal and 120 ml water in a large bowl and stand for a few minutes, until the water has been absorbed.
  3. Add the raw cacao powder, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, buckwheat flour, ground almonds, arrowroot, coconut sugar and dark chocolate and stir to combine well. Stir in the coconut oil, coconut cream, grated beetroot and salt until combined then add the berries.
  4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases, then divide the mixture evenly between them. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20–25 minutes or until the tops have cracked and the muffins are cooked through.
  5. Allow to cool in the tins before serving.


  • Due to the lack of refined sugars in here and the presence of berries and beetroot, these only last for 3–4 days, in an airtight container at room temperature. But they’ll keep longer in the fridge. If you refrigerate them though, you may just want to warm them slightly before serving.
