These are really good. I changed a few things though. I didn't have dried cherries so I used dried cherry cranberries. Also I'm trying to get a little more healthy so I only used 2 tablespoons of oil and added 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed. It made exactly 12 muffins, I love when it comes out right. I will definitely be making these again hubby says they're a keeper!
