Beat the blues with these divine beet chocolate muffins!

Beets are a superb addition to any dietary need with their sweet, earthy flavor and high volume of nutrients. This superfood adds moisture and sweetness to the cake.

Beets and chocolates are a heavenly combination. The cake batter will be a purple color, but will bake into a moist chocolate cake with no trace of beets.
