Skip the food coloring and dyes. These mini muffins are naturally pinkish/red with the help of sneaking beets into this muffin recipe. 

In the beginning of the week I promised you I had a recipe to share using beets. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, these mini muffins are perfect to make for your Valentine for breakfast.
Why is it that mini muffins just look so much cuter than regular muffins?

Many of the clients I work with don’t think muffins fit as part of a healthy breakfast. I 100% agree if it’s a giant bakery muffin filled with saturated fat, sugar, and refined flours.
These are perfectly portioned mini muffins with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about eating in the morning.
Whole grains (whole wheat flour & oat flour) .. check!
Vegetables (beets) .. check!
Healthy baking substitutions for fats with Greek yogurt .. check!

Plus, adding beets gives this recipe a boost in nutrition with potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, vitamins A, B, & C.

  1. I love beets- and I love Love Beets- such a great brand! I tried putting Love Beets into brownies last month and it was an epic fail, I’ll have to try your muffin recipe!

  2. I think I love mini muffins so much because I get to eat more of them! 🙂 Love the idea of using beets, so creative! I have a few roasted beets in my fridge right now that I’m tired of eating. I can almost bet they are going to be turned into these muffins tonight!

  3. This looks like a fabulous recipe! My husband and I are gluten and dairy free, so I might modify the recipe for us! Thank you for sharing, I’m going to pin this to my Pinterest board to save for later!
