Beetroot & Quinoa Chocolate Muffins



0 portion(s)


  • 900 g water
  • 1 cup Quinoa (uncooked), preferably soaked
  • 1 medium raw beetroot
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 4 eggs, 3 if very large
  • 1/2 cup Rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 cup Butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2-2/3 c raw cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder or essence

Recipe's preparation

  1. Rinse quinoa thoroughly and place in basket. Place 900g water in mixing bowl, insert basket with quinoa and cook with MC in place 13mins/varoma/speed 2

    Preheat oven to 180C and line/grease a 12-hole muffin tin (you may get more than 12 muffins depending on size of muffin holes)

    When quinoa is cooked, remove and allow to cool slightly or rinse under cold water

    Peel and cut beetroot into even sized chunks and chop 4 seconds/speed 5

    Place all other ingredients into bowl with beetroot, add cooked quinoa and mix 20 seconds/speed 3 or until combined. The mixture will be quite wet.

    Divide between muffin holes/cases and bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Check after 20 minutes to make sure the tops are not burning. If burning, place a piece of baking paper over the top of the tray. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack.

    Just wandering if you drain and discard the water from mixing bowl before chopping beetroot or is the remainder of water part of recipe?
