The ingredients for the lemon raspberry muffins
Fresh lemon and fresh raspberries along with almonds make these healthy lemon raspberry muffins a perfect snack for any given day.
This is what you will need for the delicious lemon raspberry muffins:
- 1 1/2 cups raw almonds
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk (or non-dairy of choice)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
Let’s start with the almonds. I like to use raw whole almonds and grind them myself using a food processor. That way the whole almond is being used. But if you prefer, you can use store bought almond meal. That generally is made with blanched almonds, so the skin of the almond is taken off before they are ground.
Using a food processor blend the almonds into a coarse ground almond meal. Add the coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and salt, and pulse a couple of times so that it all gets mixed together.
Once the dry ingredients are ready, we can get the liquid mix ready. In a large bowl, whip the egg using a whisk or a fork. Add the milk, sugar, and oil to the bowl and mix everything together. Now we are ready to make the muffin batter mix.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the almond meal mixture to the bowl and using a spatula mix everything together. Using a zester, zest the lemon into the bowl. At the same time, add the lemon juice and the raspberries to the bowl. Mix them in gently while ensuring that the raspberries don’t break apart. The burst of flavor from the whole raspberries will be amazing.
Line a muffin tray with 12 muffin liners and pour the muffin mix into the liners. Bake the muffins for about 20 minutes. Dip a toothpick into the center of the muffin and if it comes out clean, the muffins are ready.
Let them cool down for a couple of minutes in the muffin tray and then move them to a cookie tray and let them cool down completely. Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Store them in an air tight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
