Raspberry Lemon Muffins Recipe
This is the perfect muffin - really yummy flavor yet not much sugar. I've used different fruits too - blueberries and raspberries are our absolute favorites, but strawberries, peaches, or cherries are good too - frozen or fresh. You can use any kind of yogurt without fruit on the bottom. Easily adaptable to what you have. Hope you enjoy!
These vegan muffins filled with blueberries and raspberries are the perfect baked treat.
I made a few changes, but I don' t think they took away from the overall recipe so I'm giving it 5 stars. Instead of 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, I used 1/4 raspberry yogurt and 1/4 lemon. I used canola oil instead of vegetable oil, and I used the lemon extract but not the lemon zest (which probably would have made it even better, but I didn't have any and didn't want to make it!) I also used fresh raspberries since the reason I found this recipe was because I had gone looking for a recipe to use up the raspberries I had bought on sale. These were delicious muffins that stayed moist in a tupperware container for days!
These muffins came out very nice albeit not as sweet as my husband usually likes his desserts. I made a few modification that may have contributed to this: I used 0% Fage Greek yogurt as it was all I had on hand. This yogurt is quite thick, less sweet, and has a sour note. The resulting batter was more like cookie dough than muffin mix. However, to rescue the consistency I mashed fresh whole raspberry (my husband prefers the tie-die effect of the mash over the whole fruit) and incorporated it into the mix. This loosened up the batter and added the fresh fruit element. I liked the flavor of the lemon and did add the extract to really bring out the citrus. All-in-all after baking these muffins, I was happy with the results. Next time I'll either add a bit more sugar if repeating with the Greek yogurt or maybe add a lemon icing to the top.. I used turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top of the batter before baking. It was a nice touch.
Raspberries and lemons combine to make a perfectly sweet and pucker-inducing pair.
These delicious muffins are the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Sweetened with organic stevia and mixed with organic raspberries make these muffins the perfect start to your day.
These are scrumptious!! I made them for my family this morning and even my husband (the picky eater in the family) loved them. They look so nice too. What a great recipe for brunch! I omitted the lemon extract since I didn't have any, but I don't think they needed it. Thanks, I'll be making these often!
Please don't believe any negative reviews about these muffins. I just made them and took them to the fair and won a ribbon. I used vanilla yogurt and blue-berries. They were wonderful!!!
