With the advent of colder weather, our food choices naturally get a bit heavier. A bit more comforting. There are more stews on the menu, more dense breads, and more rich sauces. None of which we could ever complain about! The rich, tasty menu is one of fall’s best attributes. However, sometimes you want something with the deep, comforting flavor of autumn, but not quite so much of the denseness. And for that, we present this muffin! It has the lovely fall flavors of raspberries and almonds and honey, but with Greek yogurt and olive oil to lighten up the batter.
