Spelt flour is a delicious nutrient dense flour to use in your baking if you’re not gluten-free. It has a mild, nutty flavor, and nutrients like iron, magnesium and zinc.

These raspberry muffins are a perfect treat to make for the week that aren’t overly sweet, and are a nutrient-rich baked good to fuel your day.

Raspberry Muffins

These spelt flour raspberry muffins are:

  • simple to make
  • deliciously satisfying
  • made with nourishing ingredients
  • lower in sugar
  • bursting with raspberries

These muffins are made with spelt flour, coconut sugar, apple sauce, orange zest, and a few other simple ingredients. Spelt flour can be used as an equal substitute for regular flour in most recipes, while providing a bit of fiber and protein.

I love incorporating applesauce into my baked goods because of the texture it provides. Applesauce can help add moisture to a recipe, and replace some of the oil, while also adding a natural sweetness.

You can serve these muffins warmed or at room temperature. I love to pop them in the mini toaster for a couple of minutes, and top them with vegan butter.

Since they’re not overly sweet, they’re a delicious morning snack when you aren’t hungry quite yet for a big breakfast.

    These muffins are amazing! They taste delicious while still feeling like a healthier, less sweet alternative to a bakery-style muffin. I used turbinado sugar on top and it was a great touch!
