Raspberry Muffins

We love Strawberry Muffins, Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Chip Muffins…and basically all of the muffins. And it was time to make a dedicated recipe for Raspberry Muffins—because they are such a delicious flavor and you can make them easily with fresh or frozen berries.

These muffins are incredibly moist from the inclusion of Greek yogurt and they have a super bright flavor from both the berries and fresh lemon. They are great right out of the oven or at room temperatures. And you can enjoy them at any time of the day.

We love these for Mother’s Day brunch or, if I’m honest, for any reason.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at the ingredients you need to make this muffin recipe so you know what to expect.

  • All-purpose flour: I use a mix of flours here to get some of the benefits of whole grain flour and keep them light and fluffy.
  • Whole-wheat flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda: Check your baking soda before starting to bake to ensure that it’s fresh and active.
  • Salt
  • Whole milk Greek yogurt: I use plain, full-fat Greek yogurt here, but regular style yogurt would work, too.
  • Sugar (or honey or maple syrup): I like using sugar in this recipe (and you do need some added sweetener to balance out the tartness of raspberries), but you can sub in honey or maple syrup if you prefer.
  • Unsalted butter: You’ll want to melt this and let it cool slightly.
  • Eggs: I use large eggs for baking.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Lemon juice and zest
  • Raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen raspberries here according to what you have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use frozen raspberries?

Yes, you can make these with fresh or frozen raspberries. They work the same. The only difference is that the batter will be stiffer if you use frozen berries (the cold temperature will make the rest of the ingredients cold).

Can I use a different berry?

You can sub in diced strawberries or blueberries in this instead if you prefer.

Best Tips for Success

  • Use fresh or frozen berries. (If using frozen berries, know that the batter will be stiff since the frozen berries will make the batter very cold!)
  • Dairy-free: Use nondairy milk in place of the yogurt and neutral oil in place of the butter.
  • Gluten-free: Use gluten-free cup for cup flour in place of the all-purpose and whole-wheat flour.
  • Egg-free: Omit the eggs. Add ½ cup milk and increase the baking soda to 1 teaspoon.
  • Mini muffins: Use a 24-cup mini muffin pan and reduce the baking time to 12-14 minutes.

    Hi Amy, by far this recipe has been one of my favorite! The lemon zest adds so much flavor in conjunction with raspberries! We couldn’t stop eating them! I reduced the amount of sugar though (just a personal preference) and they turned out absolutely delicious! Thank you again!

  2. Hello! Thann you so much for delish recipes, my son loves them!

    Can I substitute all purpoee flour in this recipe with whole wheat or it flour?

    1. Hi- You’re welcome. Yes, you can use whole wheat flour. They will likely be finished baking 2 minutes sooner than the time listed. Enjoy!

    These turned out delicious!! I made it for my 1 year old with very little maple syrup, no sugar and added more blueberries as the fruit filling. She loved it. The texture was very similar to store bought muffins without the extra sweetness and it was super fluffy. I would make this often, thanks a lot for this recipe.

    I used parchment liners for the recipe and most of the muffins are sticking to the liners. Is there a way to help prevent this?

  5. 5 stars
    These were delicious, and my 2 year old loved baking them with me! I did 1/4 cup of sugar since I used half blueberries that had a nice level of sweetness to them. Thanks for another great recipe!
