  • 1 tbsp beet root powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt,
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and milk.
  • In a large bowl, use a standing or hand mixer on medium speed to cream the sugars, butter, and applesauce. Using low speed, beat in the eggs. Slowly fold in the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the beet root powder and chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into 12 muffin cups, dividing evenly. Each cup should be about 3/4 full.
  • Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of each muffin cup for a richer chocolate taste.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes in preheated oven, until muffins are springy to the touch. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
