These spelt raspberry banana muffins are light, moist and a perfect breakfast treat. I love baking my spelt muffins in a smaller bite-size muffin that's not too big.  The spelt raspberry banana muffin recipe is made with light whole grain or white flour or would work well baked with regular flour. My tip for making the muffins moist is to bake with brown sugar and oil instead of butter. For the spelt muffin recipe, the mixing method is the classic wet and dry method that is easy to whip up doesn't require electric equipment. The healthy fruit muffins will stay moist for a few days or if you prefer freeze half and have for a lazy day. Watch my video for more handy baking tips.
