Raspberry Whole Wheat White Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’ve been working through some new muffin recipes for Ottawa’s next Social Media Breakfast (October 19, as it happens) and arrived at these muffins. I really wanted to figure out a sweet muffin recipe in addition to the standard banana-nutella ones I have on hand, and I think these fit the bill. The whole wheat lends a wholesome quality, while the sweetness of the white chocolate chips complements the tart raspberries.

Raspwhwheat

Ingredients

1/2 cup spelt floour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

pinch cinnamon

pinch salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup demerara sugar (or brown sugar, if you can’t find demerara)

1/2 cup canola oil

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375º F and line a muffin tin with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours with the cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, demerara, canola oil, eggs, and vanilla. Stir the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Add the raspberries and white chocolate chips and stir until just combined.

Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake at 375º F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a tester inserted in a muffin comes out clean.

Makes about 12 muffins.
