These Vegan Raspberry Muffins are moist vanilla muffins filled with delicious white chocolate bits and juicy raspberries.
They are delicious breakfast muffins or a sweet treat in the afternoon.
Why You’ll Love These Muffins
I discovered the delicious combo of raspberry and white chocolate muffins during a trip to Australia. Since then, I recreated this delicious muffin combination using my favorite plant-based ingredients.
If you have never tried mixing raspberries and white chocolate, trust me, it’s the most delicious combo. Raspberries tend to be tangy and bitter, and the sweetness of white chocolate goes so well with them.
Plus, these raspberry muffins are naturally:
Vegan Raspberry Muffin Ingredients
All you need to bake these white chocolate muffins with raspberries are:
- All-Purpose Flour or self-raising flour – Skip the baking powder if you use the latter.
- Sugar like white sugar or caster sugar. You can always use healthier sugar options like unrefined cane sugar or coconut sugar, but it changes the muffins crumb to a darker color.
- Canola Oil, avocado oil, or any vegetable oil you prefer.
- Non-Dairy Milk of Choice – You can use almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or even coconut milk.
- Apple Cider Vinegar – to boost the rise.
- Fresh Raspberries or frozen raspberries if they are not in season.
- Vegan White Chocolate Chips – You might not find dairy-free white chocolate chips where you live. Instead, you can use plant-based white chocolate bars cut into tiny pieces.
- Vanilla Extract
How To Make These Muffins
This is the most easy raspberry white chocolate muffin recipe you will ever try. Let me share how you can whip a batch of these delicious muffins in no time.
- First, line a 12-hole muffin tin with muffin cups or paper liners. Use oil cooking spray to grease them. Next, in a large bowl, stir the wet ingredients: dairy-free milk of choice with apple cider vinegar, oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside until the milk curdles – like buttermilk. It takes barely 5 minutes.
- Chop the white chocolate bar into small chunks to make them easier to melt.
- In a separate bowl, stir all the dry ingredients: plain flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients in the bowl and whisk to combine. Don’t over-whisk. Just whisk until no more lumps of four can be seen. If you over-stir the muffin batter, they get packed and dense. In the end, fold in white chocolate chunks and raspberries.
- Stir to bring all the ingredients together, then use an ice cream scoop to fill each muffin cup.
- If you have fresh raspberries available, you can add a few on top of each muffin before baking them. If all you have are frozen raspberries, thaw them before adding them, or they release too much juice, leaving the top unbaked.
- Bake the muffins in the center rack of the oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 350°F (180°C). Or bake them until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, and the top is golden brown. Remove the tin from the oven and cool on a wire rack for an hour before serving.
You can serve the muffins plain or add a drizzle of my vegan royal icing on top.
Another option is to add a drizzle of melted white chocolate and some lemon zest.
You can use this raspberry and white chocolate muffin recipe to create a variety of muffin flavors.
You can stir in 1/2 cup of the below ingredients for a boost of taste and texture:
- Crushed almonds
- Shredded coconut
Another ideas is to add 1 tablespoons of grated lemon zest which goes so well with raspberries.
