We love muffins over here. (As you can tell from applesauce puffs and cobblestone muffins.) Muffins make a great snack or a quick breakfast.
They are also freezable and are great for kids "grab and go". Easy raspberry muffins just may help you sleep in a little on Saturday's because the kids can grab one of these easy muffins. That sparked your interest, didn't it?
Our oldest says muffins and breads like this chocolate chip banana bread are things he loves me making. Since he is going to leave the nest soon, I *may* be making things like this more often. And shipping them to his dorm room. Sniff.
Easy raspberry muffins
As with most muffin recipes, they are quite easy to put together. They are simple ingredients mixed in a bowl with whatever added fruit (or chocolate chips) in them.
Mix the dry mix first, then add the wet ingredients.
Then add the raspberries. I used frozen raspberries that were fresh from my garden this summer. Growing raspberries is INCREDIBLY easy and the spread even easier.
A helpful tip is if you want raspberries, buy a few plants, plant them in a sunny spot and just wait. Before you know it, they will be growing and spreading. They will be producing great, delicious raspberries as well.
You can find some helpful raspberry growing tips here. You don't need a large area to grow them and considering the cost of raspberries in the store, it is great to have them in your yard!
Frozen raspberries or thawed/fresh?
As you can probably tell from the picture, I used frozen raspberries straight from the freezer. I broke them apart a little bit and threw them in.
You can also use washed fresh berries. Both are delicious and work well in these easy raspberry muffins.
You can use muffin tin liners if you have them. These reusable ones are eco friendly. If you want, you can use mini muffin tins or regular sized. Jumbo would be appreciated by the kids, I'm sure! ;-)

Made these today after taking kids raspberry picking. I used coconut oil for the oil part. Everyone loved them. I like how the batter is thick, yet workable, so it's not messy getting into the muffin cups. The recipe also yielded exactly 24, which is good since I have 2 trays of a dozen.
I'm glad you enjoyed them! Also, thank you for saying you used coconut oil, that will be helpful for other readers who want to use it. The muffins are enjoyed here!
