Easy Cherry Oatmeal Muffins Recipe



By Kate Miller


We lead such busy lives nowadays that we don't have the time for a sit-down breakfast or we skip breakfast completely. My weekday mornings are crazy; I've to handle a screaming toddler, two grouchy teens and three hungry dogs. Gosh, you tell me what can be worse than that!


Muffins save tons of time for busy moms, that's why they're always on my breakfast menu – easy to eat, great grab-and-go breakfasts or as mid-afternoon snacks.


You can bake muffins over the weekend and freeze. When you freeze muffins, make sure they're cooled completely before you place them in a large freezer bag. What I do is wrap the muffins individually and then freeze. By doing so, my kids can throw in a wrapped muffin their bags for a quick sport snack. The muffin is defrosted by the time they eat.


Or, thaw the muffins in the morning and reheat in your microwave oven for about 20 to 25 minutes (depending on your microwave strength) and viola, breakfast is ready!


Here's a cherry oatmeal muffins recipe passed down from my grandma. It's healthy – you get fiber from oats to keep you full longer and has tart cherries for beta carotene and Vitamin C.


By the way, did you know that the beta carotene content in tart cherries is 19 times more than blueberries or strawberries? Okay, let's bake some muffins....


Cherry Oat Muffin Recipe

To make 12 muffins, you'll need these ingredinets:

1 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¾ cup buttermilk
1 egg, slightly beaten
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup frozen tart cherries, drained and coarsely chopped (or 1 cup frozen, unthawed)


How to make cherry oatmeal muffins


Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; mix well.


Combine the next 4 ingredients in another bowl. Pour this mixture into oats mixture and stir just to moisten ingredients.


Stir in cherries quickly. Get your greased muffin pan ready and fill the muffin cups to about two-thirds full.

Bake the muffins in a preheated 400 degree oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy!
