These raspberry muffins are the perfect tea snack. They’re subtle but sweet with soft raspberries throughout and white chocolate drizzled over top!
So far, I think this recipe is one of my favourites and while I love a lot of my recipes, I definitely don’t say that about them all. This one, in particular, is deliciously sweet but in a really nice and subtle way. I reduced the added sugar to allow for the raspberries (because we all know sometimes they can be a tiny punch of sweetness).
My second favourite thing about these raspberry muffins is how imperfect they are. They’re a good representation of rustic and I picture they’d be more at home in a large country farmhouse on a natural wood dining table. If I had to describe these muffins in one word, it would be ‘lovely’.
Making these raspberry muffins is very simple and I personally find it quite relaxing. Start by preheating your oven and laying out your little muffin liners onto a tray.
Then prepare two flax eggs by adding two tablespoons of flax meal into a small bowl and mix that with four tablespoons of water. Let it sit until it becomes thick, this usually takes only two to four minutes. While that’s happening, you can whisk all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl, then all of your wet ingredients (including the flax eggs) in another bowl, now combine them by gently folding the batter together.
Next mix in your frozen raspberries along with anything else like you’d like to add into the muffins. Next time I make them I’ll be trying them with macadamia nuts! Spoon the batter into the liners, pop the tray into the oven until they’re golden on top, let them cool and then drizzle your melted white chocolate over the top. The vegan white chocolate I used for this recipe is this one by Sweet William.
Now they’re all ready to be enjoyed with a big cup of tea and a good book.

- Prepare your flax eggs by mixing the flaxmeal and water in a small bowl and letting that sit for 2-4 minutes to become thick.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the butter and sugar, then add and whisk in the milk, flax eggs and agave nectar.
- Gently fold the wet mixture into the dry until it becomes a moist dough-like batter.
- Carefully mix in the frozen raspberries and spoon the batter into the muffin liners. Fill each liner, smoothing the top with the back of your spoon.
- Place the muffins into the oven for 15 minutes until they become lightly golden on top and an inserted fork comes out clean.
