These Chocolate Raspberry Muffins are a long time favourite of my kids! It’s the time of year to get back to baking for school and work lunches again, isn’t it? The Christmas and New Year’s parties are all done with and it’s time to get our kitchens back to normal. With that said, it’s time to make muffins again for us, as the kids basically live off of muffins in their lunches.

While raspberries are fairly pricey at this time of year, I always find that a burst of summer taste in the middle of winter can cheer you up like nothing else. This is why we can and preserve our summer tastes, so that we can enjoy them in the deep, dark, dreary winter months

I didn’t use my stash of frozen raspberries for this but you can, however use them with the knowledge that the berries will squish through the muffins more than fresh ones will. I love a good berry squish throughout a muffin. Just look at that delight below! Oh, that one squished up so nicely and the muffin is so gorgeous now!

    I found l had to add more milk, l couldn’t even stir it to mix . Probably only about another 1/4 c.
    They are very good!

  2. Dani says

    Just pulled these out of the oven for the first time! Wow! I couldn’t wait and had to try one right. Even as I singed my taste buds I could taste the delightfullness. Added a tad bit extra milk to help mixing.5 stars

  3. Kristy Ford says

    Best muffins ever! I make these often. My son can’t have eggs and I substitute with flaxseed and they are amazing.

    I’ve used this recipe. They’re awesome!

  5. Dee says

    I made these yesterday together with my 4 year old, I only had mixed frozen berries so i used those. The muffins turned out very very yummy! I have a few left over today, I think they taste even better now. Thank you for this recipe!

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      @Dee That’s awesome to hear! I’m so glad that you liked them!

  6. JB says

    I made these a couple of days ago. I used frozen raspberries that I lightly coated in flour first. Also, I used white chocolate chips and added a white chocolate drizzle on top. They were amazing! I took some to a friend, and she was upset that she had to share with her husband. They were phenomenal! 

    I did not line the muffin cups, just used spray, and they came out very easily. 

    These were so quick and easy to make, I will be making them a lot. Thank you for the recipe!

    • thekitchenmagpie says

      @Heather Fabulous! Yes, husbands are like that, aren’t they…. glad you all liked them, hope you managed to have a taste!

  8. lisa says

    These look very good, I will give them a try! I especially love the sugar amount. I just saw a good looking recipe for banana crumb cake and it had 2c sugar per 2c flour plus the sweetness of 3 bananas.. yuck! 😉

      They are super delicious! Hope you love them!
