The sweet white chocolate complements the tart raspberries, making them oh so moreish. You definitely won't be able to stop at one!

💭 Top tips
Muffins don't like being over mixed. Over mixing will result in tough, hard muffins. What you want is light and fluffy muffins, and that means gentle mixing and folding.
🍴 Serving suggestions
These muffins are great as an after school snack for kids, with an ice-cold glass of milk, and maybe a cup of tea for Mum or Dad! Why not have a warm muffin, fresh from the oven for a quick and easy dessert with honeycomb ice cream?
They transport really well too, so are ideal for taking on picnics or for charity bake sales.
There are lots of easy ways to vary the flavours in these muffins. You could substitute the raspberries for other berries like blueberries, or even blackberries, when they are in season.
The white chocolate chips could be swapped for milk chocolate chips, or they could be left out all together.
Instead of using plain natural yogurt you could use a raspberry or vanilla flavoured yogurt instead.
The muffins will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Store in a cool dry place like a pantry or cupboard.
🧊 Suitable for freezing?
These muffins freeze really well, so you could make a double batch and freeze half for another day. They take no time at all to defrost. I often take the muffins out of the freezer first thing in the morning and they are fully defrosted in time for a mid morning snack.
