Beet Muffins

Our granddaughters love looking through the old scrapbook cuttings and handwritten recipes that have been handed down to us over the years.  We have become the repository for these well used scrapbooks, boxes and notebooks from both sides of the family and today's recipe comes from this treasure trove of recipes.

What is unique about this recipe is that you use shredded beets and the taste is wonderful, much like a Morning Glory Muffin with just a hint of beet flavour.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 cups shredded beets
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  1. Mix all of your dry ingredients together (flour, wheat germ, sugar,cinnamon, salt, soda, raisin, walnuts, coconut)
  2. Mix all of the wet ingredients together (eggs, oil, beets)
  3. Slowing pour the wet into the dry mixing as you pour
  4. Spoon into muffin tins
  5. Bake at 350 F for approx 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
