Double raspberry chocolate chip muffins are gluten, dairy and nut free treats packed with fresh raspberries.When fall arrives everyone is thinking about apples, pears and pumpkins. But don’t forget the end of summer/early fall fruit that reappears – raspberries! Yes, they come back.
This year we were able to go raspberry picking and enjoy a few raspberry treats with our last few days of warm weather.
I made raspberry ice cream, raspberry yogurt and raspberry pancake topping. Those are all great! But my favorite was the double raspberry chocolate chip muffins.
These muffins have the perfect amount of moisture from the raspberries and an extra hint of sweetness from the chocolate chips. You’ll never know they are gluten and dairy free.
Raspberry muffins make an easy breakfast. They also pair well with any kind of soup for a simple, nourishing lunch or dinner. So make a big batch, stash some in the freezer and you’re ready to go.
My kids devoured these muffins. My daughter even ate two with her meal! Even though one recipe makes 18 muffins, none of them made it to our freezer. I should have made a double batch.
Take advantage of this late summer fruit and enjoy a special breakfast treat. Your whole family will love double raspberry chocolate chip muffins.
