Whole-Wheat Lemon-Raspberry Muffins recipe - The Daily Meal
Total time: 27 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries (see notes)
Directions
  1. Heat the oven to 350 F. Line muffin tins with paper cups.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt and lemon zest (from 1 whole lemon).
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric whisk or beaters, cream 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter until smooth. Turn the speed down to low; slowly add 1 egg, 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, 1/2 cup milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  4. With the speed on low, slowly add the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl, if necessary. With a spatula, carefully fold in 1 cup frozen raspberries (see notes) until well combined.
  5. Using a small ice cream scoop or large spoon, portion the batter into the muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick comes clean when inserted in the center, about 18 to 20 minutes. Once cool, the muffins can be individually wrapped and frozen for up to two months.
