Features:
    • 45 minutes
    • Serves 6
    • Medium

    Directions

    Let me introduce you to the new peanut butter and jelly…almond butter and cherries!

    Of course, you can use any fruit you want. And if you must, you can use peanut instead of almond butter. But I hope you don’t!

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Mix Dry Ingredients

    Preheat your oven to 350F and line your muffin tin with muffin liners.

    Add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk to combine.

    Make Flax Egg

    If you are making these muffins vegan, it's time to make the flax egg.

    In a small bowl, combine 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds and 1 tbsp of water. Mix and let it sit while you make the wet ingredient mix.

    Mix Wet Ingredients

    In a second large bowl or glass measuring cup, add lightly warmed almond milk, sugar, almond butter, oil and the vanilla or almond extract. Mix well to combine. Next, add the egg or flax egg and mix to combine.

    Add Wet To Dry

    Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until combined.

    Done

    Scoop & Bake

    Scoop about 4 tbsp of the batter into the lined muffin tins then add one or two or three cherry halves. Top with 2 more tbsp of batter then top with one more cherry halve.

    Bake the muffins at 350F for 25-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry.

    Done

    Almond Butter Drizzle

    While the muffins are lightly cooling, make the almond butter drizzle.

    In a small sauce pan, heat up 1/4 cup of almond butter and 2 tbsp of maple syrup and a small splash of almond milk. Heat and stir for 2-4 minutes.

    Using a small spoon or a ziplock bag with a small corner cut off, drizzle the muffins with the sweet almond butter mixture.

    The cherries are so fun on the top! I love muffins, especially with cherries, that’s one of my favorite fruit flavors in muffins.
