Raspberry & White Chocolate Honey Almond Meal Muffins


Raspberries. White Chocolate. Honey. Almonds. I’m not sure it gets much better than that. I’ve been craving raspberries for a few weeks, I finally caved & bought a most definitely not in season basket full at the grocery store. I don’t regret it one bit.


I've had a string of kitchen misses lately. I’ve made dry cookies, cupcakes with much too heavy frosting, and cornmeal muffins I spat out after one bite (which never happens! they were bad enough to justify my gross actions.). As soon as these came out of the oven, I picked at a corner of one and popped it into my mouth while it was still piping hot. I knew instantly I had a hit on my hands, even as I did a little "this is too hot, why I'd do that!" dance while fanning frantically at my mouth.


These are best if you use good quality white chocolate, not that candy-making kind you find in the baking section at the store. The white chocolate is what sweetens these up, as there’s no sugar & only a little bit of honey in the batter. I like to mix most of the raspberries in but leave a few to press into the tops before I bake them. Enjoy. :)
