Muffin Monday: Raspberry Pecan Muffins


Note to my vegan friends… as you’ll see pretty quickly from the ingredient list… these are not vegan. So be warned.

These Raspberry Pecan muffins are good on their own. But if you are livin' large and want to ramp up the flavor volume spread a bit of goat cheese on top a hot muffin.

You can really taste the butter in these muffins, and you wont need to give them an additional pat. However if you are looking to really boost the flavor, my tester Bill tried them with a bit goat cheese and found them super delicious.
