These muffins are big, fluffy and satisfyingly loaded with healthy fats, berries and protein rich ingredients, making them the perfect, quick-whip-me-up first nourishment of the day.
We’ve used raspberries in this recipe but you can switch it up for blueberries, blackberries or strawberries if you prefer – that’s the beauty of the muffin, right?
One recipe makes 6 deliciously moist baked goods; ideal for your breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack. We’ve also included some additional add-ons in our tips section below if you fancy making your own combo!
