Raspberry Bran Muffins-3Labo(u)r day. The weekend we used to dread since it meant back to school was right here. Now some kids go to school year round and the rest have already started in this area. It’s time to get into a routine and welcome fall. Unless you live in the Bay Area where it’s fall 90% of the year.

I really like the idea of fresh raspberries but I honestly don’t enjoy eating them as much as say blueberries or strawberries. They just are kind of gritty to me, and when you get a non-perfectly ripe berry things are just underwhelming. I’m not saying you should use sub-par raspberries in this recipe but the rest of the ingredients let the fruits natural awesome taste shine through even if they aren’t perfectly sweet.

Raspberry Bran MuffinsI tried to make these a bit healthier with whole wheat pastry and regular flours. It makes for a more dense muffin. Feel free to use all-purpose if you like them a bit fluffier.  There is a lot of egg replacer in these because the flour is so dense. I’m not sure if a flax egg would be able to handle it, I didn’t try.
