Raspberry Almond Mini Muffins

April 8, 2018


I have been making these raspberry almond mini muffins for about 10 years now. My mom and I made these every Easter and now I make them for Easter and throughout the Spring and Summer months. They are incredibly easy to make and so delicious. I often get asked for this recipe so I wanted to share it with all of you!

My favorite raspberry preserves to use is the brand. You can make these two days before you need them and they will still be rather fresh. But of course, nothing beats them fresh out of the oven! Remember to wait to dust them with powdered sugar just until you are about to serve them.

I hope you enjoy them and would love to hear how they turned out for you!

Have a beautiful day !

  1. I’m not really fan of raspberry but these look like heaven! I love how you have passed this tradition of making these with your girls. I always loved cooking with my grandma and I love making a few of the ones I grew up with with my girls.

    1. You can definitely switch out the raspberry jam for a different flavor too 🙂 I love family recipes like this too !

  2. I love family traditions that involve food! My older daughter enjoys baking with me, but she’s been on a strawberry kick lately. This definitely looks like a yummy recipe we can try together!

  3. These look amazing! I have been looking for a new recipe to try and because of you I know what I am trying this weekend! The boys are going to love them!

  4. Raspberry and almond sound like a fantastic combination! Love that you have kept up this family tradition. Makes the muffins extra special!

I would love to hear from you!
