Serve these muffins for breakfast and your family will be begging for more. We love the combination of cream cheese and tart raspberries.These sweets have only two-thirds the fat of traditional muffins. Walnuts are full of heart-healthy fats, and the antioxidants in raspberries can prevent heart disease and certain cancers, as well as keep your eyes, mind, and immune system sharp.
