Raspberry Bran Muffins

The first day of school is fast approaching, and if you’re like me, you’re looking for easy snacks and meal plans–stat!  While I still haven’t mastered the fine art of meal planning, I’m pretty good at whipping up a batch of healthy muffins.

This recipe was born out of a love of Tim Hortons Raspberry Bran muffins.  They are in stores seasonally, but I want them all year round!  The taste is pretty close, although I wish I could get them to rise better like they do in the store.

Grab your fresh or frozen raspberries and lets get started.

Every year I can't wait until Tim Hortons serves Raspberry Bran Muffins. They're my favourite! I developed this easy copycat recipe to fill the craving. Healthy, delicious, and perfect for snacks and back to school lunches.

The secret to making a muffin with a nice texture is to separate your wet and dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.  If you mix too much, you’ll end up with blue and red muffins–not quite the look we’re going for.

Otherwise, raspberry bran muffins are super simple to make and a great way to use up your raspberries.

I experimented with my recipe three times to try and get my muffins to rise like the ones in Tim Hortons.  Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get it to work.

I could have added more baking soda and/or baking powder, but if you add too much it will make your baking taste funny.

These muffins may be flat on top, but I promise they are very tasty!  Make a batch this week and freeze the extra for school lunches all week long.

Or, you and your family could just slowly sneak them one by one off the counter as they’re cooling.  Not that that ever happens in our house, or anything.
