Looking for a sweet bite in the morning? Adding raspberries to your muffin batter yields a tasty bite the whole family will enjoy. And while you’re snacking on these delicious muffins, you can teach the kids some fun facts about raspberries!

For example, even though raspberries are fruits, they are actually NOT berries. Scientifically speaking, berries are fruits whose seeds and flesh come from just one flower. A single raspberry is actually made up of lots of tiny round fruits, each with its own seed. Therefore, a raspberry is called a composite fruit. Look at a raspberry up close or under a magnifying glass, and you can see the individual fruits. How cool is that?
