Raspberry Muffins With Chia Seeds

Raspberry Muffins With Chia Seeds

These sweet raspberry muffins are a game-changer: They’re made with wholesome ingredients, are incredibly moist and delicious.

Naturally sweetened with applesauce and a touch of maple syrup, these raspberry muffins taste like dessert but you can eat them for breakfast (with some fruit and protein).

The raspberries become extra juicy and burst to give the muffins an almost soufflé-like interior. Chia seeds add a boost of fiber and a surprising crunch.

The secret ingredient that takes this recipe to the next level is mashed sweet potato (you can make it fresh or buy the silky smooth canned version — or use pumpkin puree).

The flavor is undetectable, but it gives the muffins richness and makes them even sweeter and even more irresistible.
