Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.
  2. Line a mini muffin baking tray with mini muffin cases.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and sugar) in a bowl.
  4. Melt the reduced-fat spread in a pan or in the microwave. Allow to cool slightly before mixing with the yoghurt, milk and egg. Then pour into the dry ingredients and combine. Don’t over-mix, or the muffins will be dense.
  5. Gently stir in the raspberries. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases – you will need a good teaspoonful per case.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 15–20 minutes, or until risen and firm to touch.
  7. Transfer the muffins onto a wire rack to cool.
Take these into the office to give your colleagues a healthy alternative to the normal selection of cakes and biscuits.
