Sweet, soft and nutty almond butter and cherry muffins for a sweet treat, snack or dessert.
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!
I love making muffins as they are essentially cake but individual size.
These almond butter and cherry muffins also make a great snack.
Let me tell you why I am choosing almond butter, it is a healthy fat replacement when baking.
A small serving of almond butter contains a generous amount of magnesium, which boosts heart health! It also contains vitamin E and helps lower cholesterol.
When buying store-bought nut butters, I recommend buying natural and unsweetened nut butter. It is less processed and you get to control the amount of sugar you put into your body.
There are some great almond butter brands out there but you have time I recommend making your own homemade almond butter.
This recipe is easily made dairy free and vegan!
Mix Dry Ingredients

Make Flax Egg
If you are making these muffins vegan, it's time to make the flax egg.
In a small bowl, combine 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 Tablespoons of water.
Mix and let it sit while you make the wet ingredient mix.
