Valentine's Day Breakfast Treat: Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Luscious tart raspberries combined with mini chocolate chips make the most decadant muffins and scream Valentine's Day!

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of my all time favorite combinations is raspberry and chocolate.  Wherever I see it combined (chocolate bars, ice cream, chessecake, cupcakes, etc.) I'm there buying it.  So I'm not sure why I haven't made a Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffin until today, but the coming Valentine's Day sparked my inspiration.

These muffins are made from my basic muffin recipe but are soooo luscious and decadent!  I actually got 8 muffins out of this batch due to all the add-in which is a win in my book!  The addition of fresh raspberries and mini chocolate chips is present throughout the muffin and is filled with tartness surrounded by chocolate.  These truely are Heaven in a muffin.  Perfect for Valentine's Day or actually anyday!


What Ingredients do I need?

  • eggs
  • low-fat milk
  • canola oil
  • all purpose flour
  • sugar or alternative sugar 1:1 ratio (for Keto, low carb)
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • fresh raspberries
  • mini chocolate chips

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use white whole wheat flour in place of the all purpose flour

  • Make mini muffins or small loaves instead
  • Doing a Keto diet or want lower carb? Use an alternative sugar of you choice as a substitute.  I like King Arthur's sugar alternative.

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • 1st rule of thumb when making muffins is not to "overmix" the batter.  You want it batter to just come together.  Little spots of flour is okay.
  • To get high muffin tops turn your oven up to 400 degrees.
  • Make sure you are using fresh baking powder.  To test put 1/2 teaspoon into 1/4 cup of boiling water.  If it bubbles, you are good.
  • Double the recipe for 12 muffins.
  • Muffins can be frozen individually and kept for 3 months.

  • Fill the muffin tin almost to the top for nice big muffins.
