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.
First, mix all the dry ingredients together and then add the eggs and the wet ingredients.
Add the raspberries last and gently fold them into the batter so that you don’t crush them.
Be careful not to overfill the muffin tin. Save room for the streusel topping!
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!

Store your raspberry muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze them. They will stay fresh in the freezer for up to six months.
