Raspberry Muffins – Fresh raspberries and yogurt make these beautiful Raspberry Muffins super moist and incredibly delicious!
You guys, I saw it happen right in front of my very eyes. It’s true! People go to the grocery store and walk out, making a profit!!
As I was waiting in line to pay for my chocolate chips and raspberries, I noticed the customer ahead of me at the cash register was taking for.evah. To find out what’s up, I stood on my tippy toes, looked around and spotted the several hundred coupons on the conveyor belt. At this point, I could have just moved onto the next register, but that’s not adventurous!
Because I’m nosy, I sat there and watched the entire thing. 25 minutes of absolute fun! And amazement. The lady did not pay a dime! In fact, they gave her 7-cents back. Absolutely incredible. I now believe that the whole couponing thing is actually real. Kudos to those that do it!
Me, on the other hand? Yeah. I paid 12$ for a handful of raspberries. I made myself feel better by making a batch of Chocolate Raspberry Macarons for my Mom and a batch of Raspberry Muffins for me!
You know, there’s a lot of good things I can tell you about these raspberry muffins. First, we’re talking about fresh, juicy berries. Second in line is yogurt. Third, brown sugar. And, fourth? They are really, really awesome!
These muffins are what I call a balanced breakfast – we’re dealing with fruit, dairy, grains… aaaaand brown sugar. This is as balanced as it gets.
I’m embarrassed to say, but I stress-ate three of these muffins as soon as I took them out of the oven. I burnt my tongue, but all is well – I ate 3 very warm, sweet muffins! That is all that matters.
I topped the rest of these beauties with honey whipped cream, for good measure. Then again, I like to top everything with whipped cream…
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Line a muffin pan with paper liners or grease muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
- Mix in brown sugar; mix well and set aside.
- In your mixer's bowl beat eggs until fluffy, about 1 minute.
- Add yogurt and vanilla; continue to beat until thoroughly combined.
- Slowly whisk in half of the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture.
- Whisk in the rest; continue to mix until well incorporated.
- Gently fold in the raspberries.
- Divide batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool on rack.

Yes!!! Raspberry muffins are the best!! These look amazing 🙂
Yes please to brown sugar as part of a balanced breakfast! I’d like 1 (ok, 3!).
Nothing compares to fluffy muffins infused with fresh berries! (Love the brown sugar too.)
These are definitely lunch, breakfast, dinner, anytime muffins! Oh couponing … it takes so long to find the exact item the coupon applies for, but in the long run it is worth it. For as much time as I spend at the store, I would need these muffins to hold me over!
I would be too embarrassed to do the couponing thing. Whenever I do have any coupons by the time I’ve struggled around the store and stopped my toddler from running away I forget about them anyway!
These look perfect! I love their giant domes!
This is the motivation I needed to get out there and find some fresh raspberries. I shall do it, and I shall make marvelous muffins.
I’ve heard of this “extreme couponing.” A coworker of mine does it. She tried explaining it to me once, but I glazed over. My cousin also coupons. If I had the time and stamina for it, maybe, but I don’t. It requires so much dang planning. I would need to quit my job if I even wanted to consider becoming that extreme. Half the time I leave the one coupon I clipped at home and forget about it until it expires. I’m hopeless. I’d say you did the right thing. Stuffing muffins in my face is sure to make me feel better. Love these! Pinned.
I saw raspberries and muffins and had to come see what this was all about. LOVE them!
I wish I hadn’t finished the last of my raspberries last night cause I’d love to make and try these muffins. And someday, I may have the courage to try to make macarons again too. Don’t coupon but I’ve seen one of those super couponing shows. All I could think was that the woman had to have SO MUCH storage space to store all those things.
Those muffins are downright voluptuous! They look beautiful. As for that hyper-couponing thing…I’m not sure it’s the most time-efficient return on one’s money, but I had a friend back home who was into it for a while…
I seriously have to try these. I love anything with raspberries and these are simply fantastic!
I coupon, but not extremely. Most of the time, there are not coupons for healthy or fresh things. Great muffin recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks 🙂
I need to get into it… I was blown away. I admit, I was also inspired. I came home and started going through all my junk mail, looking for coupons! 😀
Couponing is extreme and I wish I could get paid for my groceries yet I spend hundreds each month.
Being food bloggers, especially, we spend a whole lot more, so this couponing thing should be our other “hobby”. 😀
I don’t know how people do that with the coupons. I never even see coupons for most of the things I buy. I can totally do these muffins though!
