- 1/2-2/3 c raw cacao powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda

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.
