Low Fat Cherry-Oatmeal Muffins

Low Fat Cherry-Oatmeal Muffins

Fiona Haynes
I make the most of Washington state's bumper cherry crop for these muffins. Dark, sweet Bing cherries are perfect for these low fat muffins, but to make cherry muffins any time of the year, frozen cherries work perfectly, too.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 33 minutes


  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries (do not thaw), roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper cups.

With a wire whisk, combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine buttermilk, egg, oil and almond extract in a small bowl. Make a well in the center of the oat and flour mixture. Add liquid ingredients. Stir until just moist. Fold in chopped cherries.

Spoon muffin mixture into muffin pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Simple & AMAZING!, Member Kat_baylor

I had a friend coming over and needed to whip something up. I had cherries in the freezer and saw this recipe and decided to try it. They were amazing!!! Full of flavor and so moist. We enjoyed them as well as did our kiddos and my husband ate 2 for dessert that night. Since then I have taken them to picnics and other get togethers and everyone loves them. You really should try em!
