2tsp baking powder   

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

Pinch of salt                

200ml  skimmed milk  

80g natural yogurt



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.
