Raspberry Pistachio Muffins

Raspberry Pistachio Muffins - Flow Bake - Gluten Free, vegan
We can’t get enough of the berry and nuts association in baking, and raspberry and pistachios combo is a favorite of ours. The two complement each other well, berries adding a soft sour tartness while nuts bring crunch to our moist and fragrant muffins.

Prep time: 20 min 
Cook time: 25 min 


✢ 1 Flow Bake Cinnamon Muffin mix
✢ 250g raspberries
✢ 70g pistachio nuts (unshelled)
✢ 100ml plant-based milk (we used almond milk)
✢ 80ml vegetable oil
✢ 100ml Natural soya yogurt
✢ 1 tbsp Agave syrup
✢ Lemon zest

Pink buttercream
  • 100g vegan butter
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 drops of red food color paste 
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Prepare the ingredients by washing and slicing the raspberries and chopping the pistachio nuts.
  3. Prepare the wet ingredients by combining plant-based milk, oil, natural soya yogurt, and agave syrup in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the muffin mix into the mixing bowl and combine with the wet ingredients.
  5. Stir in the raspberries and pistachio nuts until well combined. Finish off with some lemon zest.
  6. Using a scoop or spoon, evenly put the batter in a greased muffin tray or a tray lined with muffin cases.
  7. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Check that the batter is thoroughly cooked by inserting a toothpick in the middle and observing it comes out clean.
  8. Allow the muffins to cool. Pipe the buttercream on each muffin and top with raspberries and chopped pistachios.

To make the buttercream: Combine room temperature vegan butter and half of the sifted sugar and mix on low speed for 2-3 minutes. Add the rest of the sifted sugar and continue mixing. Add vanilla extract and few drops of red color paste.
