How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Now grease up a 12-cup muffin tin or you can line it with paper cups instead. Set this aside for now.
  • In a large sized bowl, whisk up the wheat-flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well mixed. Stir in the half cup chocolate and nuts; set this aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the other (2/3 cup) chocolate chips and butter over super low heat. Stir this to combine and set aside to let cool until it is lukewarm.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together brown sugar, eggs, beet puree, vanilla, buttermilk and the melted chocolate.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into your dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Do NOT over mix!!!
  • Then immediately spoon the batter into the 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups. The batter should entirely fill the wells.
  • Place muffin pan in a preheated 375 F oven. Bake for around 18-20 minutes.
  • You can tell the muffins are done when a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. I beg you, do not over-bake these!
  • Finally cool muffins for about 10 minutes in the pan then remove to a wire rack to cool entirely.

    This sounds interesting and can't wait to try it. I love things that are not too sweet, but have depth of flavor that is difficult to describe-- I will try this without nuts to see what the mouthfeel is.
