  • cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sugar of choice

    add 2 more tablespoons, if want sweeter
  • 1/4 cup honey, optional
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or ½ cup canola oil or oil of choice or ½ cup unsweetened applesauce and 2 tablespoons oil of choice
  • 2 large eggs or egg whites
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon - grate for lemon zest and use the juice from lemon when preparing the recipe
  • 1 1/2 cups sour or sweet cherries, pitted fresh or frozen, toss with 1 tablespoon flour & 1 tablespoon sugar before adding to muffin mixture


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pan with liners or spray with baking spray. I used silicone muffin pans and sprayed it with olive oil spray. Set aside.
  • In one bowl, add flour, salt, baking powder & baking soda together and mix with a whisk.
  • In another bowl, lightly beat eggs and add in yogurt, sugar, applesauce, honey, vanilla, lemon zest and juice from the lemon and mix until well blended.
  • Add wet mixture to dry mixture until just blended. (Don't over mix - you will get tough muffins!)
  • Toss fresh or frozen cherries with 1 tablespoon flour & 1 tablespoon sugar before adding to muffin mixture and fold about 3-4 times and then scoop muffin mixture into prepared muffin cups. Will rise 1/2 inch or more.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops become golden brown.
  • Recipe makes 12-14 regular muffins.
