Raisin Breakfast Muffins
Start your day off right with these delicious and nutritious raisin breakfast muffins! Packed with sweet and wholesome ingredients.
This is my Raisin Breakfast Muffin recipe. These are my own invention and are a cross between muffins and scones, which I thought was pretty cool. They are quick and easy to make, perfect for on the go and also a great addition for back to school lunches. They aren’t sticky and don’t create lots of crumbs either, so they are perfect for office or school snacks. They also keep for 4-5 days too, if they are stored in an airtight container, like I said, perfect for lunch boxes. It would make a lovely addition to any breakfast or brunch you have with friends too.
What are raisins?
When I first posted this recipe on my social media, I was asked by a few people what raisins were and also what the difference between raisins and sultanas were. Raisins and sultanas are both types of grape that have been dried for around three weeks. Raisins are normally dried in the sun . The grapes darken as they dry, which gives the raisins their dark brown/purple color. Raisins are produced in many regions of the world and can be eaten raw or used in cooking. Both raisin and sultanas are made from the same type of white grape. The difference between them both is the drying process. Like I said previously, raisins are normally sun-dried without using any additives or preservatives. The slow drying process helps to retain the grapes nutrients and makes it a healthier choice to sultanas.
Sultanas are processed before they are dried; they are normally dipped in vegetable oil then into an acidic formulation; lastly they are dried. Because of the process used before drying the sultanas, they can retain a little less nutrients compared to the raisins.
Are raisins good for you?
Raisins are packed with vitamins and minerals; they also are rich in fiber. This little dried fruit is naturally sweet, but for its size its quite high in sugar and calories. You should eat raisins in moderation. As an added bonus raisins are brilliant for aiding better digestion. So what better way to start your day than with a few raisins in your healthy breakfast muffins.

Banana breakfast muffins Blueberry breakfast muffins (simply swap out the raisins for fresh blueberries) Chocolate chip muffins (not something you’d eat everyday, but everyone needs a little chocolate in their life now and then.
