This Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Muffins recipe is bursting with plenty of chocolate and raspberries. They are our family-favorite, with a moist and soft center, and a slightly crunchy top. You can make ahead and freeze, and pull out of the freezer and defrost (or micowave) when you have a sweet muffin craving! So good!

Tips and substitutions:

  • You can mix up the berries with blueberries, blackberries, or chopped strawberries.
  • Use honey in place of brown sugar.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, use one cup milk + one teaspoon white vinegar.
  • The oats must soak for at least twenty minutes before proceeding with the recipe.
  • I say carefully, because nobody wants little pieces of berry in their muffins. 
  • Muffins stay fresh covered at room temperature for a few days, then transfer to the fridge for up to one week.
  • Freeze for up to three months in an airtight container.

Warm connections with cozy muffins

Fall is my favorite season to host out-of-town company. The warm days are perfect for hiking, and outdoor activities, yet the evenings have a chill and perfect weather for dinner on the back deck. Muffins are easy to make ahead and freeze for weekend company, and we love this Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal Muffins recipe!

Warm connections are built around the opportunity to reconnect with, and encourage, close-knit friends. Many times it starts with food, or breakfast in the morning.

ENJOY!
