Over the weekend, the kids and I went to pick raspberries and blueberries. And man, did we come home with A LOT of blueberries. Most of them will be eaten fresh or frozen, as we are headed out of town soon, but that is A-OK. My kiddos love to eat frozen blueberries as a treat, so they are happy.
While picking, Phoebe ate about 10 berries for every one that she put in the bucket, but that's the best part, right? And..... we found a friend in one of the blueberry bushes! It surprised me at first-- you will find her picture below....
We froze some of the raspberries and the rest went into these muffins. I thought they were delicious. I have included my recipe below...
Raspberry-Chia-Cholcolate Chunk Muffins:
1 3/4 cups of flour (any kind will do)
1/2 cup sugar or your favorite sweetner
3/4 cup milk or milk-ish product
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup of fresh raspberries
1 cup chocolate chunks or chips
1/4 cup chia seeds
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350 and prepare muffin tins. Mix together egg, milk, oil and sugar. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Slowly mix in flour, salt and baking powder. After it is thoroughly mixed, add in chia seeds. Then fold in chocolate and raspberries.
Pour into muffin tins and bake at 350-F for about 20 minutes. Remove and let cool on rack.
These were a bit gooey with the raspberries, but they were yummy!
