Anyone who knows me knows I’m a huge fan of muffins. Unfortunately though, sometimes store bought muffins end up being loaded with sugar, fat, and an absurd amount of calories. I remember the first time I found out that many muffins have more calories than a donut!
Luckily baking at home is a huge life saver. You can control the ingredients that go into the foods you eat, and make delicious and healthy treats. This recipe is for the best healthy raspberry muffins. I know that’s a tall claim, but these muffins have been tested to perfection. They’re filled with wholesome natural ingredients like oats, buckwheat, and coconut oil. They are also dairy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined-sugar free, and can easily be made vegan with flax-eggs. Most importantly, these healthy raspberry muffins are loaded with chocolatey goodness. Because who doesn’t want an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast?
