Raspberry Muffins Recipe

Raspberry Muffins Recipe

We've got a recipe for a delicious weekend treat that your little ones will love. These low sugar Raspberry "surprise" muffins from Little Plough Kitchen are easy to make, gluten free and have an added jammy surprise in the middle.

They are incredibly simple to make and freeze brilliantly. They have a good boost of protein in them to keep hunger at bay for longer, and are a complete “go to” in our family. They are loved as they feel like an indulgent treat when actually they have a very small amount of sugar in them (especially compared to shop bought!). I often make big batches and freeze so we always have them to hand. 

Raspberry Surprise Muffins

165g Ground almonds
120g Gluten free self raising flour (I like to use @freeefrom)
3 Eggs
100g Butter (or vegan version) - melted
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
40g Light Muscavado sugar
40g Coconut sugar
St Dalfour jam (I love this brand as they use no added sugar - just natural sugars from the fruit) however you can use whatever can you like - I use strawberry or raspberry)
Extra milk if a bit thick 
Oats and muscovado sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

raspberry surprise muffins

Pre heat the oven to 180/200 and line muffin tins with cases (this should make between 10-12).
Simply mix the dry ingredients well into a large bowl and all the wet in to another smaller bowl. Then simply, gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Once it all comes together stop as you don’t need to over mix the ingredients.

Take tablespoon dollops of the mix and drop into the prepared muffin cases. Then gently spoon a small amount of jam on top (about ½ a teaspoon) and cover with another spoonful of your muffin mix so its all hidden inside.
Sprinkle with some oats and a little muscavado sugar (this is optional) and into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden, puffed up and cooked all the way through.
These freeze brilliantly but I always warm them through before serving. (However remember if heating up the centre can get very hot)
