Raspberries are one of Evan’s favorite fruits….right up until they aren’t. Last week the whining was unending about the lack of raspberries in the refrigerator. Every day “Why don’t we have raspberries? Did you buy raspberries?” Fast forward to this week and I have 2 quart packs of raspberries languishing in the fridge because he doesn’t love them this week. Those were $7 a pack! Gah. So what is an angry mom to do? Make muffins…. Whole Grain Lemon Raspberry Muffins….of course.
So many muffin recipes are so sugary that you might as well call them a cupcake and be done with it. I liked this recipe because it didn’t call for that much sugar. The resulting muffin has a great texture and lets the beautiful raspberry flavor shine through. These raspberry lime muffins make a great breakfast, afternoon snack or lunchbox treat (without giving your child a sugar crash for the afternoon).
