Strawberry/Raspberry Muffins

*Non-keto, not low-carb, contains grains
*Gluten-free
*No added sugar

These muffins are rocking our world right now. Maesie, daddy and I love them. Max is afraid of the cooked raspberries but we’ll keep trying with him.  There’s now substantial scientific evidence demonstrating that normal dietary doses of Ellagic acid (a polyphenol found in raspberries and strawberries) significantly slows tumor growth (in mice).  We prefer to eat the goodies raw, but sometimes the berries turn quickly so it’s nice to have something to easy to do with them. They make excellent cupcakes as well. I try to bake them last at night after the house has cooled off a bit. This recipe is for a double batch, making about 24 muffins (why make less?) total.
