Chocolate Beetroot Muffins

Recipe by PetsRus

Saw this on a tv cookery programme. Even beetroot haters will like these ...because they can't taste the beetroot, but it makes the muffins moist.

Great recipe! These were a real hit with the family! The only thing I would change would be the addition of some chocolate chips for an even bigger chocolate punch!
