I have always loved cherry flavored desserts and I love almonds too. These Simple Cherry Almond oat muffins are delicious and combine two of my favorite flavors. These muffins are perfect for grab and go or to have as a quick anytime snack. 

The sugar filled muffins you can get in packages at the store are full of sugar and synthetic preservatives. Making your own not only tastes better but you are in control of ingredients. You can use delicious but nutrient dense whole foods like oats, nuts, fruit, and spices. As in my Maple Pumpkin Oat muffin recipe, you will also not find sugar in this recipe. The maple syrup sweetens these muffins wonderfully. I love making a big batch of these and then popping a bunch in the freezer to grab and go as we please. Try these! I know you will love them as much as my family does. 

These Simple Cherry Almond oat muffins are absolutely delicious.
