Fresh Raspberry Muffins

We go crazy around here for fresh muffins. And raspberries? We’ve had bushes in the backyard since the kids were young. So put it all together for this fresh raspberry muffins recipe and I get some VERY excited kids!

Honestly, it always feels like such a treat to go out and pick a handful of raspberries, or even a bowlful, especially when I think about how expensive fresh ones are in the grocery store.

These raspberry muffins are chock full of fresh fruit, settled into a tender, sweet cake.

Raspberry muffins are delicious, especially when you can snag fresh raspberries to add to the mix!

The extra baking powder helps them blossom in the muffin tin, especially since fresh fruit can weigh down a muffin and make it more dense than fluffy. So, as a result, these look like muffins, and not like hockey pucks!

Serve them as a breakfast item, as a snack, or pack them in the lunchbox like I do for a sweet treat or a healthy pre-workout snack.
