About these raspberry almond muffins
Admittedly, these raspberry almond muffins are almost more like a cupcake! They are light, airy, and taste so delightful. The raspberries within the muffin help keep the muffin very moist while adding texture.
These muffins would be wonderful for a weekend brunch, Easter, or even a baby or bridal shower. I think they are good enough that you may just want to make them to have on hand for a snack. Any time I have made a batch, they don’t last long!
You can use either type. If using frozen raspberries, do not thaw before using.
Once you add the raspberries, very gently fold them in. You do not want to over mix or crush the raspberries. Even if the raspberries do break up, the muffins will still taste just as good.
The muffins may be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Please note the muffins will dry out some in the refrigerator. Otherwise, the muffins may be frozen to be enjoyed at a later time.
Yes, you may make substitutions based on preferences. I do not advise adding extra almond extract or it may overpower the muffins.

- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¼ cups fresh or frozen raspberries if frozen, do not thaw

- Preheat oven to 375° F and line your muffin tins with cupcake liners.

- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
- Very gently fold in the raspberries. Do not overmix as to not break the raspberries.

- Ovens vary, but bake the muffins for approximately 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
