DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Lightly spray muffin tins with cooking spray. (You can also use liners but the direct contact with the pan gives the exterior a crisper exterior.)
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, Splenda, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until they are well-frothed but not stiff. If you have meringue, you’ve gone to far. Add the yogurt and almond extract and beat a few more seconds.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, mix until just combined. Over mixing will result in some tough puck-like muffins. Gently fold in the cherries and almonds.
  • Fill muffin cups two-thirds full and bake for 18-20 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean.
  • Serve warm. I like mine with Brummel and Brown spread.
  • Enjoy!
