Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg , room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk *see note below*
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate (or dark chocolate chips/chunks)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray, add muffin liners if desired, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt for about 20-30 seconds until everything is fully combined. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the sugars with the egg until combined. Whisk in the buttermilk, oil and vanilla extract.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula until just combined and all flour is off the bottom. Avoid over-mixing or the muffins will turn out too dense! The batter will be somewhat lumpy. Gently stir in the raspberries and dark chocolate.
  • Spoon muffin batter into prepared muffin tins, filling to the top. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes and serve fresh. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes

*If you do not have buttermilk you can add 1 tbsp lemon juice to 1 cup of regular milk. Stir together and allow to sit for a few minutes before mixing into the batter.
