Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins are light and fluffy, and bursting with sweet raspberries and melty chocolate chips. So easy to make – they are the perfect weekend breakfast!
Saturday morning…to me it is absolutely the best time of the week. I just love the feeling of lazily waking up and having the promise of the entire weekend to do whatever I want. And as I’m sure you could guess, what I want to do almost always involves baking. You’ve probably noticed an abundance of breakfast recipes on Chez CateyLou, and that’s because I love making breakfast for us on Saturday mornings. Muffins and donuts and coffee cake and pancakes – I love all of them! Last Saturday I made Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins and wow, did we devour these. I love a good raspberry muffin, and of course melty chocolate chips can only make things better.
Muffins are one of my favorite breakfast items to bake because they are so easy! From start to finish, a homemade and delicious breakfast can be on the table in 45 minutes. And there are so many varieties.
I know what you might be thinking – raspberry muffins in November? Well even though I love all things pumpkin, I am still a berry fanatic. And you can get great fresh berries year round. Plus, Whole Foods had them on sale for $2 so of course I had to grab a few containers!
I also had to add some chocolate chips to the raspberry muffins, because, well, why not? And because TheBetterHalf loves him some chocolate at breakfast. Anytime I put chocolate chips in a muffin, regardless of the flavor, he’s obsessed. One of the main reasons why I married him 😉
So these muffins. The base is butter beaten with white and brown sugar, kind of like a cake batter. And they really do taste like little cakes – light and fluffy and full of buttery vanilla flavor. Each muffin is full of sweet yet tart raspberries, and of course tons of chocolate chips. They are the perfect thing to whip up on a cozy Saturday morning!
Time for me to go out for some coffee and some groceries – I’m not baking breakfast today because I am making some Thankgsgiving goodies to share with you next week! Hint – there is cornbread and bacon involved. You are definitely going to want to check it out on Monday!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
