Healthy Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Gluten-Free Raspberry Lemon Muffins

With Spring around the corner, out comes the floral linens, bright coloured dishes, and many variations of clear vases. I love fresh, wild flowers – the likes of those that one has trouble finding when there is 30cm of snow on the ground. Spring brings just such beautiful buds which I use to invigorate our home with. A bunch of tulips here, a sprig of cherry blossoms there. They bring the right elements of nature into our living space and I rather like that. What is your favourite Spring flower? 

Along with flowers, comes a newness of things. The melting away of the old and a sense of renewal.  I find that I am inspired in many aspects of my life at this time of year. Whether it is in my fitness program, recipe repertoire, design projects or family outings – I find I am open for discovery and fresh ideas. Going with this feeling, instead of making a regular oatmeal raspberry muffin like I am accustomed to, I decided to do lemon and raspberry for a delightful change.  Of course, I am a lover of most baking and cooking that involves lemon, so I had an inkling that it would be perfection.

They turned out like little cakes rather than muffins – although with not enough sweetness to be really considered a cake, they remain muffins in my recipe book. Little A. devoured his and was convinced they were in fact birthday cakes!  I added a bit of local honey on mine and it contrasted the lemon/raspberry tartness wonderfully and I enjoyed each delicious bite. I want to make these again soon with blueberries – I think ithey would be equally as scrumptious.
