  • Whisk flour, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger in bowl. Whisk sugar, goat cheese, and eggs together in a separate bowl until smooth and creamy; stir flour mixture into goat cheese mixture until flour mixture is completely absorbed into batter. Fold in beets. Spoon batter into the prepared muffins cups, filling 2/3 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

These are delicious. You won't taste the beets and the goat cheese offers a wonderful flavor finish! People really love them as mini muffins too! It's easier to get them to try it: ) once they do they are hooked! I find that mixing the goat cheese first then adding sugar then adding the eggs keeps the eggs from being over worked. I shred the beets with a cheese grater than cook & strain them. I also added a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts for crunch. The batter is stiff until you add the beets. Read More

I turned it into bread and I didn't have all those specific flours. However it was okay. I might make it again if someone else really liked it but I didn't think it was that good. It has sugar of a sweet bread but the cheese is salty; so I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be a sweet bread or a salty one. Also mine was a little dry. It could be because I have no measuring devices in the house; another egg probably would have fixed that problem. It beats not having fresh baked bread though. Read More

I made this because I am trying to LEARN how to like beets and made too many. So I found this recipe and had to try it. I have there kids 10 yrs and under. Only one likes the beets naturally. Cooked in these muffins all three love them and ask for more. They were actually upset I took them to my mom's group. At the mom's group many were left over their reviews were mixed but many thought they were ok with a couple really liking them and a couple not at all. However I did put a bit more beets in it than the recipe called. I will make it again the muffins again.:) I did find the batter to be dry and may add water next time. 2 eggs seemed like too little liquid to me. Read More
