Fresh Cherry Muffins

September 10 , 2017 by: Taylor Breakfast, Snacks

I know cherry season is ending/maybe over but I just had to sneak one cherry recipe in before it’s too late! I love fresh cherries, and this is the perfect recipe to highlight their juicy deliciousness. These are also better for you than your average muffin due to the flax and half whole wheat flour (but they don’t taste like it), so you don’t have to feel THAT guilty about it.

Hopefully you can still find some fresh cherries but if you can’t (or are too lazy to pit 2 cups of fresh cherries), you can always use blueberries, fresh or frozen. I tested both and it was also delicious. This is also a super easy recipe, you literally just mix everything in a bowl and then bake, BAM, done.

Fluffy muffins, juicy cherries, what else can you ask for?
