You can use wheat flour as a healthy option. If you feel like increasing teh quantity of cocoa powder please feel free to do so. I wanted bright red color so I have used only 1 tbsp. You can adjust the quantity of beetroot puree as well depending on the color you want. I wanted to sneak in as much as possible as I made these for my kids and it was a nice way to feed them beetroot. Please follow your instincts while baking and every Oven has different settings. So please check after 15 minutes if your muffins are done or not. You can do this be inserting a toothpick. If it comes our clean then your muffins are baked properly.
