½ tsp vanilla extract                

180g plain white flour            

180g ground almonds            

2tsp baking powder   

2tbsp cocoa powder (or 1 ½ tbsp raw cacao powder)           

Pinch of salt                

200ml  skimmed milk  

80g natural yogurt

 

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C and line a muffin tin with 12 cases.

2. Whisk the eggs and sweetener in a large bowl until fluffy.

3. Mix in the beetroot, vanilla and then the rest of the dry ingredients. Slowly add the milk and yogurt and mix until well combined.

4. Divide mixture among the paper cases and cook for around 20 minutes.

5. Leave to cool on a wire rack. For a quick icing, mix quark or greek yoghurt with melted dark chocolate and a little icing sugar.
