Summer is kicking pretty hard these days and I reckon everyone is looking for something fresh, light or fruity to eat. Even if I like no-bake cheesecakes, ice-cream cakes, fruit pies, fruit cobblers (if you want a cobbler all for yourself go check my Peach Cobbler For One recipe here), and everything just right for hot summer days, I also want some denser things!

But denser things can quickly become heavy when temperatures are rising and you are not hungry anymore (do you have to be hungry to eat something? I don’t…). So, you need something to satisfy you that is light, fruity, but dense. Sounds good? I hope so.

This recipe was for an outside coffee break, and everyone in the family loved it. I have to say, writing this, that saying a family, a ‘difficult’ husband, or children, love something…means everything.

Because, in a family you have several personalities and if you are lucky –or not- they tell you the truth.

A difficult husband/partner/boyfriend/girlfriend, well, you can read, on his face, that…he doesn’t like it or loves it.

Children…I don’t have children, but I took care of many and I am sure you can agree with me when I say they tell you the truth when they taste something. And in general, when they are fond of something, they have a very kind way of saying it and it means the world. (the same goes for family and hus’ of course :))

Raspberry Muffins

These healthy muffins are made with

Buckwheat and all-purpose flours: healthy and rustic

Brown sugar: for the taste

Yogurt and no butter: for the lightness

Raspberry: for the freshness

Like any other muffins, you have to mix the dry ingredients first and in another medium bowl you whisk the wet ingredients. Then you mix them with a rubber spatula with or a wooden spoon.

This recipe is for 6 large muffins, so you have to use bigger muffin liners than for cupcakes. Or you can just fill more cupcake liners.
