Loading

These healthy purple muffins are packed with good stuff. They're tasty, too, so perfect for both adults and kids.

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line a 6-hole muffin tray with paper cases.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the egg, oil and orange juice until well combined. Stir in the grated beetroot.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, sunflower seeds and mixed spice until well combined.

  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients one tablespoon at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  5. Divide the muffin mixture equally among the six muffin cases. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are cooked through (a skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean). Set aside to cool, then serve.

Recipe Tips

You can make smaller muffins using a mini-muffin tin, but remember to adjust the cooking time as they will cook more quickly.
