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

Preheat your oven to 350°F 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 Tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 Tablespoons 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.


Scoop & Bake

Scoop about 4 Tablespoons of the batter into the lined muffin tins then add one or two or three cherry halves.

Top with 2 more Tablespoons of batter then top with one more cherry halve.

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


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 Tablespoons of maple syrup and a small splash of almond milk.

Heat and stir for 2-4 minutes.


Decorate and Eat

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

These muffins can be stored in an air-tight container on your kitchen counter for up tp 4 days.

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

Almond butter and cherries sound like a great flavor combination. This looks like a muffin that my family would love!
