Few food combos get me as excited as raspberries and chocolate. This darling duo has made many an appearance around here, from banana bread and scones to tarts and cake.

It was about time we brought this combo into the morning spotlight. Welcome to the party, Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins!

This tried-and-tested recipe uses a basic sour cream muffin batter, which guarantees big points on the moisture front. It’s then dressed up with juicy fresh raspberries and mini chocolate chips, ensuring a bit of fruit and a bit of chocolate in every single bite.

The real highlight here is that this basic batter can be made into any size muffins, from minis to oversize, so don’t hesitate to use whatever pan you’ve got.

Once you’ve whipped together the batter, it’s your choice whether you stick with the raspberry-mini chip combo, or if you want to get creative with other options. All forms of fruit and chocolate chips or chunks (as well as the optional nut addition) would work great in this breakfast staple.

  1. These muffins are fantastic, very moist, not very sweet and very satisfying. I’ve made this recipe 3 time this week everyone loves them

    1. Hi Jenifer – I’ve never made this recipe using a loaf pan so unfortunately, I’m not sure about the bake time. Would love to hear your results if you give it a shot!

  2. These look amazing! I do have a question- I have tons of frozen, wild picked berries. Was thinking I’d combine fresh strawberries with frozen blue berries and frozen raspberries. So, should I thaw the frozen berries prior to adding, or just add a few minutes to baking time?

    1. Hi Lisa! No need to defrost them, but I do recommend coating the berries in a little flour before gently folding them into the batter.

  3. 4 stars
    These muffins are delicious. I found that although they tested done with a toothpick, the next day they had become quite wet on top. Probably moisture from the raspberries. Is this just a matter of leaving them in a few minutes longer? I don’t want them to get too dark. Thanks for your suggestions.

    1. So glad you enjoyed the recipe! And yes, the raspberries will release moisture as they settle over time.

      1. Yes, you can sub in diced apples in the same quantity as raspberries :)

  4. 5 stars
    These muffins are fantastic! I haven’t made muffins in forever and raspberries are my favorite fruit so as soon as I saw this recipe in my email inbox I knew I had to make it. So glad I did! My family really enjoyed the muffins too. Thanks for another excellent recipe, Kelly!!

    1. Hi Karen! Almond flour isn’t a 1:1 swap for all-purpose flour so I wouldn’t recommend it.
