Heavenly scent chocolate beet cupcakes! Rich, velvety, scrumptious delights are just a few words to describe these (A beet treat that cannot be beat!)
I love the idea of using healthy vegetables in dessert recipes, such as carrot cake or pumpkin cookies.
My chocolate beet cupcakes does not call for an overload of sugar. The beets are a great source of natural sugar on their own. Beets provide the cupcakes with healthy fibre and create a beautiful moist texture in them. Gluten free flour can also be used as a substitute for regular flour in this recipe.
Raspberry cream cheese icing is the perfect and delicious way to spread on top these delightful cupcakes!
Optional: raspberry dark chocolate or plain dark chocolate bar for top decoration.Preparation:
