Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins

You would never in a million believe that these coconut, raspberry and white chocolate muffins were healthy. Well, apart from the white chocolate… I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone mention that white choc was a health choice.

But there rest of these muffins are perfection. Full of wholegrain goodness with the most moreish flavour. They are not too sweet, but just sweet enough.

Make some for afternoon tea and freeze the leftovers for lunchboxes. Actually, better make that a double batch if you want leftovers…

  1. I’m not a huge fan of raspberries because of their annoying seeds that crunch between your teeth (like leftover sand in vegies) and they get stuck in your teeth. But I had leftover frozen raspberries (from a cheesecake brownie I made) that needed to be used. I said “I’ll make these once and be gone of raspberries!” Looong story short, today I’ll be baking maybe the 5th batch and have bought more raspberries since finding this recipe earlier in the year. It really is delicious and moreish. I like them warmed slightly in the microwave. Thanks for this awesome recipe! There doesn’t appear to be a recipe rating feature here but I’d give it 5 stars!
