  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat sugar, butter, and lemon zest together in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs and banana to the sugar mixture; beat until smooth. Stir about 1/3 of the flour mixture into the sugar mixture to integrate fully into a batter; repeat with remaining flour mixture in two even additions. Fold beets and chocolate chips into the batter; spoon into the lined muffin cups.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

I have never been a beet eater mainly because my mom never made them. I tried this recipe and the banana works with everything to pull it together! I agree that there probably will not be any fo...

I loved these! I used canned beets, but otherwise didn't change a thing. I love the banana and lemon zest flavors with the beets. I will be making these again for sure.
