Cherry Lavender Muffins

Amy OsborneAuthorAmy OsborneDifficultyBeginner

There's no question about it - I absolutely love to incorporate floral essences when baking. Not only do cherries compliment lavender, but I associate cherries with summer baking, so it seemed like a natural choice to create this recipe!
These muffins could be made with granulated sugar, but I chose to use granulated monkfruit to keep the sugar content low. I hope you enjoy these seasonally-inspired muffins as much as I do!

Prep Time10 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time30 mins

 5 cups Blanched Almond Flour
 3 tsp Baking Powder
 ½ tsp Salt
 1 cup Granulated Monkfruit
  cup Coconut Oil (melted)
  cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
 6 Eggs
 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
 15 oz Canned Sweet Cherries
 24 tbsp Dried Culinary Lavender

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tines with paper liners. Use Vitamix or food processor to blend culinary lavender and granulated sugar or monkfruit.
Note: I personally love the flavor of lavender, so I went for the full 4 Tbsp. Keep in mind that lavender is a strong flavor, so if you want a more subtle lavender flavor use 2 Tbsp instead.

2

Drain and rinse cherries, then cut into quarters. Set aside.

3

Sift almond flour, salt and baking powder together and set aside.

4

In a separate bowl, combine eggs, coconut oil and lavender sugar and beat until smooth. To this, add almond milk and vanilla extract.

5

Slowly add dry ingredients to wet until fully combined. Then, add quartered cherry pieces.

6

Divide batter amongst 24 muffin tins and bake 20 minutes.
