Mini Raspberry Oat Muffins

Raspberry Muffins 1

There’s pretty much nothing better on a Saturday morning than a warm batch of muffins. Last weekend I had bought a ton of fruit, and I wanted to find something to make with the most perfect ruby red raspberries I picked up. Since I love oats in pretty much every baked good, I went with raspberry-oat muffins; can’t get much more creative than that. These are fairly guilt-free, made with mostly oats instead of flower and non-fat greek yogurt. They were super light and fluffy, and great to grab and go in the morning. (They also come in handy Sunday morning when you have friends crash at your place after a late Saturday night!). For some reason I pretty much only make miniature muffins and cupcakes. I’m not really sure why, but I think I just find them cuter and more convenient when you don’t want to eat a whole muffin. Either way, large or small, these muffins are delicious (and somewhat nutritious).

Bon Appétit!

Mini Raspberry Oat Muffins (Recipe from Clever Muffin)

2 Cups Fresh Raspberries
1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Canola Oil
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Non-fat Greek Yogurt
2 Egg Whites

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 250 Deg F. Grease mini muffin tray (makes around 36 mini muffins).

Mix flour, brown sugar, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, canola oil, vanilla extract, greek yogurt and egg whites until fully combined. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring lightly as you go. Stir until just combined, and slowly fold in raspberries.

Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into the muffin tray for each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly golden.

    I love the mini muffin sizes myself. They are way cuter and I end up eating a reasonable amount with the minis versus when I have a regular size muffin in front of me. These look delicious, love the oats, greek yogurt and fresh fruit in these.

      Completely agree, Ngan! I will always eat the entire regular sized muffin if it’s in front of me, and regret it later!
