You all know I love baking muffins, they make a great low point quick breakfast or a nice treat with your lunch and when I can get them to 2 smart points each it’s a good day! πŸ™‚ These raspberry lemon muffins are the perfect flavor combination, just enough sweetness to them to leave a smile on your face.. Bake up a batch today and you won’t be disappointed.. Full size muffins at 2 points is a win win in my books..

  10. Thank you for this recipe, I made these today with blueberries and they turned out great. I’ve been on the hunt for a low point muffin recipe and this one is perfect!

      So glad you enjoyed them Jill, I have several low point muffins, hopefully you find another one you like πŸ™‚

  11. I tried these, but I’m not sure they turned out correctly. Followed the recipe exactly, and double checked all ingredients.. they were very gooey inside, maybe do to the raspberries?? Are they supposed to be “cake-like”?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Raspberries can be tricky to bake with, especially if the ones you used were really large, you did’nt use frozen ones did you?

  12. Rosemary Little Reply

    I was wondering, what do you think blackberry would be like? They are on sale at the store and these sound good.

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI Rosemary, they would still be yummy although I would suggest maybe cutting the berries in half as blackberries tend to be big and that could result in mushy muffins πŸ™

  13. I made these muffins for morning tea this morning. So yummy!!! I had to use frozen berries and they turned out really well. I also added 1/3 cup white chocolate chips. Increased sp, but not by much. Thank you. I love your recipes. ????

      Hi Tania, so glad you enjoyed the muffins, I love the chocolate addition πŸ™‚

  14. Reid Lancaster Reply

    This recipe looks delicious, as do all of yours! I can’t wait to start baking. I was wondering if you have tried strawberries instead of raspberries?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thank you, no I haven’t but I have seen people on instagram do so, just cut them small if you can πŸ™‚

    • Melissa Davis Reply

  16. Hi Kate!
    Love your recipes! Just had a question about this one. I’ve never baked with fruit before and I have made this recipe twice now and both times the areas in the muffin that has the raspberries remains mushy. The rest of the muffin is cooked perfectly but it has pockets of mushy around the raspberries. Is that normal or am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Ashley, I find raspberries (and strawberries) to be difficult to bake with and yes the areas with the fruit will likely be a little mushy just do to the fruit, your getting the mushy from the fruit not from a underbaked muffin, hope that helps

  17. This recipe sounds awesome, I’m going to try it soon. Can I do all the mixing in a food processor?

  18. Loved these and I am super picky. The batter itself is not sweet but the raspberries really add some taste. They taste better warmed up for sure. I would add more lemon juice and zest next time. I found that taking them out of the muffin tray as soon as you can to cool avoids mushy bottoms that can be caused by the wet fruit. I will be making these again. yum

      Glad you enjoyed them Amanda, and thanks for the tips πŸ™‚

  19. I didn’t have any fresh raspberries on hand, so used frozen blueberries. They turned out amazing! Thank you for all your great recipes.
