1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt

For the wet ingredients

3 eggs, whisked
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups raspberries, fresh or frozen


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tray with 8 paper muffin cups.

2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and blend to combine. Place the wet ingredients, except the raspberries, in the food processor and pulse until incorporated.
