Raspberry Muffins Tips

All the exact steps are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. First, here are some pictures so you can see how I made them. I’m also sharing some of my best tips for making homemade raspberry muffins.

Adding eggs and other wet ingredients to dry ingredients in a large glass bowl

First, mix all the dry ingredients together and then add the eggs and the wet ingredients.

Adding raspberries to muffin batter in a glass bowl

Add the raspberries last and gently fold them into the batter so that you don’t crush them.

Are There Any Ingredient Alternatives?

Absolutely! When it comes to the yogurt component: I say, go all out! Lots of Greek yogurts out there come in different flavors. For our muffins, we actually went for Coconut Greek Yogurt and it added an extra kick of flavor. Of course, go for a yogurt flavor that’s more subtle so that you don’t lose out on your raspberry flavor: like coconut or vanilla.

Can I Use Frozen Raspberries?

Yes, if you have frozen raspberries at your disposal, then you can definitely use them. When working with frozen raspberries, increase the cooking time by a couple of minutes.

Do they taste just like Starbucks muffins?

I think so! This one’s a pretty good copycat! Starbucks muffins are best known for their streusel topping and these ones really hit the mark!

In terms of the baking time, I ended up baking mine at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes and they came out absolutely perfect in texture and color!
