You wouldn’t believe these Low Syn Chocolate and Beetroot Muffins are made with scan bran….but they are!!

In case your wondering what Scan Bran is, it’s a Slimming World legend! It’s Scandinavian bran crispbread, kind of like a thicker, more tasteless Ryvita….
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Some people love it, some people hate it. In our opinion the only way it becomes palatable is in a chocolate cake. We’ve already made some 1.5 Syn Rocky Road Muffins, some 1 Syn Black Forest Cupcakes and even some Half Syn Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes with it before now.
As we all know making anything with beetroot can get a little messy…..no one wants to be scrubbing off (or trying to at least!) beetroot juice. We use Marigold Gloves to keep things a bit cleaner.
Now, you’ll probably remember Marigolds from years ago, but things have come a long way since then. They now do a whole range of products to make cleaning that little bit easier. We use the Marigold Sensitive Gloves which are great if you’re allergic to latex. You can see the full range here on their website.
Back to the recipe……These Low Syn Chocolate and Beetroot Muffins are so easy to make and really delicious. Don’t be put off if you’re not a fan of beetroot. Adding it to a chocolate cake recipe makes it incredibly moist. It’s definitely something that has to be tried to be believed and appreciated.
And as a bonus you can use the mini muffin mould to make some of our mini cake and canape recipes. These silicone moulds are so easy to use, and super easy to clean.
