RECIPE NOTES

  • To steam the beets, cut into quarters and put in a glass dish with about 2 Tbsp water. Cover the dish with saran wrap and place it on a plate and microwave for 5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the plastic wrap, stir, re-cover and microwave for another 2-3 minutes until beets pierce easily with a knife. Drain the water and let cool for a few minutes. Then use a spoon or knife to remove the skins. 
  • You could try making these in a high-powered blender but I haven't tried it myself yet.
  • White flour will also work if you don't have white whole wheat. I don't recommend regular whole wheat flour as I find it too dense for baking.
