Oatmeal Raspberry Muffins

Looking for a yummy lunchbox snack? Or something to bring for a post-game treat? Or how about a little nibble with your evening tea? We have just the thing: Oatmeal Raspberry Muffins.

“These muffins are super-delicious any time of year”, says Jenny Pitcher, a certified health and wellness coach and registered dietitian nutritionist at OhioHealth. “Of course using fresh red or black raspberries in season brings them up a notch, but these are great with frozen berries as well. You can even use blueberries instead or a combination of both.”

Jenny loves these muffins for breakfast with peanut or almond butter. She says the combination keeps her full and satisfied for the entire morning.

And they’re a hit with the littles, too.

“They’re a treat for the entire family”, says OhioHealth Wellness Consultant, Mariah Fredritz, CHES, ACE. “The oats and raspberries are a perfectly sweet combo that even the pickiest eaters will enjoy!”
