Loaded Healthy(ish) Muffins

Beets. I don't love them. Sometimes I think they taste like dirt.
This recipe makes muffins out of beets, I made some additions and they turned out pretty well.
Do they taste like a sugar packed, dessert like muffin? No.
Are they sweet and delicious with a hint of earthy flavor? Yes.
yield: 18 muffins

1.5C all-purpose flour
1/2C old fashioned oats
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4C sour cream
4 tbs butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
2 small beets, shredded (or Vitamixed)
1 apple, shredded (or Vitamixed)
1/2C sliced almonds
1/2C semi-sweet chocolate chips

  6. Fold in beets, chocolate chips, and almonds.
