I thought these muffins were very good. Only changes I'll make are to cut the almond extract by half (and I'm generally a huge fan of almond flavor) and just to make them healthier I will omit some of the sugar. Sliced almonds would be a nice addition, as another reviewer said. I added flax seed and used almond milk soured with lemon juice. The edges browned quickly but I left the muffins in the oven since the center wasn't cooked (total 17 minutes); thankfully the edges didn't taste dry or overcooked.

Great recipe! I bought to many cherries at the Farmers Market so I made a batch of these and they are delicious. Didn't have almond extract so used vanilla. Also substituted Equal for some of the sugar.

WOW these are great!! we did not have butter milk so DH used regular milk. We also used King Arthur white whole wheat flour. These would be great with almost any fruit.

ug, it's really too bad these were so crumbly, espcially when hot and warm. Only advice is to leave in the muffin tins (I didn't have paper) until completely cool. They were good. Nice gentle sweetness. Good oatmeal taste. I replaced vanilla with almond extract (didn't have any) and it was just fine. They were nice. A good way to use up some cherries and showcase them in a dish that doesn't require more than 1 cup!

Great recipe. Simple and delicious. I made a batch with banana instead of cherry and they turned out very tasty as well.

I loved the flavor in these muffins, especially the amount of almond extract. They didn't puff up very much, but that might be because of the amount of oats, I'm not sure. They also were fairly wet in the center on the first day, but much improved by the second day. I am not sure if that is because the amount of cherries is too much or if they needed to bake longer (I baked them 21 minutes, and the toothpick did come out clean). I used less sugar and topped them with sliced almonds. Thanks, Kree!

This has become a family favorite as well as the favorite of everybody else I have given them to. Very moist and delicious. It is worth freezing chopped cherries to be able to make these during the winter, too.

These were great! I made them gluten free and they still turned out moist and tasty. I also used a little less sugar since I used sorghum flour (it imparts a sweeter taste). Thanks!

Wow! A low-fat treat that actually tastes good! I will definitely be making these again, especially when fresh cherries are in season.
