HOW TO MAKE LEMON RASPBERRY MUFFINS
These muffins are quick to make with little fuss. You will be enjoying them in about 45 minutes.
- Melt your coconut oil in the microwave, and set aside.
- Zest your lemon, and then slice and juice it.
- Combine zest of your lemon and sugar into the food processor, blending until the lemon zest is evenly mixed into your sugar.
- Then while your processor is running, carefully pour buttermilk mix through tube. Stop processor as soon as blended.
- Pour your buttermilk mix into your flour mix, stir until blended and add in raspberries. I like to keep a handful of berries to the side.
- Once you add batter to muffin, add one or two berries to the top of the batter.
- Bake, and enjoy.
- Store any uneaten muffins covered in the fridge.
