If you do not have any beets or do not want to use them, simply replace the beet juice in the recipe with milk.
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease one muffin tin or line with muffin cups. (recipe makes 12 muffins)
In a large mixing bowl, beat together:
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup beet juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup apple sauce
Mix the following together, then Stir it into the above mixture:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
Then stir in:
1 finely chopped or grated apple
1/2 cup raisins
Fill the muffin tin/cups with the batter to 2/3 full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes depending on if you are using a light or dark colored pan. If you are baking the muffins in a dark colored pan, it will probably take the full 20 min. depending on your oven.
Remove the muffins from the tin and allow them to cool on a rack.
