Directions:

  1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Blend the cooked beets and canola oil until smooth. In a separate bowl combine the beet puree, milk, coconut sugar, vinegar, egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix. Do not over mix--batter should be thick and slightly lumpy.
