Beetroot Doughnut Holes - Red Nose Day 2019 sm
25 min

Red Nose is a charity that aims to eradicate sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). A Better Choice would like to help raise awareness on Red Nose Day with healthy beetroot doughnut holes. Beets add nutrition, natural sweetness and a beautiful colour to this recipe. If you wish to make these extra colourful, try adding 2 teaspoons of beetroot powder to dry ingredients or 5-8 drops of natural food colouring. For a little added touch, dust the cooled doughnut holes with powdered sugar.


  1. Preheat oven to 350’F (175’C). Grease a 24 count doughnut -hole pan or mini muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine the beetroot puree, sugar, egg, vanilla, olive oil (and beetroot powder, if using). Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until combined.
  3. Drop approximately 1 rounded tablespoon of batter into each hole in the prepared pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Let cool completely before garnishing with powdered sugar.

Special Equipment | 24 doughnut hole pan (or a mini muffin pan)
