Healthy homemade 146 calorie choc beetroot muffins

If you’ve ever been tempted by red velvet cakes, you’ll love this recipe. It comes DIRECT from our August 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Instead of using red food colouring, it’s the fresh beetroot that gives these muffins the pinkish hue.

28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Melanie Phillips shared this fab pic on our Facebook page, with ‘choc chips added for this hungry breastfeeding mumma.’

It’s a high fibre and delicious muffin recipe that is great to store and have on hand for when you need a healthy snack.
