Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

Gifting home made goodies is a beautiful way to share a bit of love with family & friends. Making your treats nutrient dense and organic means you are also sharing the gift of health, in a delicious way.

Finding a light and delicious gluten free muffin recipe has been a long-time mission of ours. We finally experimented enough to create a soft, not too dense muffin. We decided that to honour this achievement we needed to add (arguably) the best add-ins possible- the classic raspberry choccy chip!
