Raspberry Oat Muffins

Oats and raspberries are a perfect pair in these Raspberry Oat Muffins.

Recently, I was looking through past BoB photos for a little project and happened upon photos of these muffins. I quickly realized that I had never shared the recipe with you. And, believe me, these muffins want nothing more than to be shared with you!

This recipe is a bit different than the traditional muffin. I added oats to them to give them a little extra flavor and a hint of chewiness. I adore raspberries, but feel free to use your favorite berry to make these your own.

The sanding sugar is optional, but it adds just a touch of sweetness. And, well, it just looks pretty. While it’s not an item you’ll normally find on your local supermarket shelves, I can usually find it at Williams-Sonoma. It’s also available at a couple of my favorite online shops – Nuts.com and King Arthur Flour.
