Vegan Beet Cupcakes

Image

Ingredients that you will need:
  • 2 medium beets
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 
3/4 cup raw turbinado OR granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola or melted coconut oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 1 heaping Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour or unbleached all-purpose flour
  • scant 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
 + more for topping
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt

Preheat oven to 375°F, remove the stem and most of the root from your beets, and scrub and wash them underwater until clean.
Wrap beets in foil, drizzle on a bit of canola oil, wrap tightly, and roast for one hour or until a knife inserted falls out without resistance. They should be tender. Set in the fridge (in a bowl to catch juice) to cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, either finely grate or puree beets in a blender (adding orange juice or water to encourage mixing). Measure out 1/2 cup and set aside.
Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
Whisk together the almond milk and vinegar in a large bowl, and set aside for a few minutes to curdle. Add the sugar, oil, vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup beets and beat until foamy.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to a sifter and slowly sift it into the wet ingredients while mixing with a hand-held or standing mixer. Beat until no large lumps remain.
Pour batter into liners, filling 3/4 of the way full. Bake 22 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Do not try and unwrap them or they’ll stick to the wrapper.
Once cooled, dust with cocoa powder and store in an airtight container to keep fresh.
