Cherry Surprise Honey Muffins

My son requested these muffins - I think he's a little bit sick of my chocolate avocado muffins that I've been making for weeks! I forgot how good these cherry surprise honey muffins moist and the honey really adds a wonderful touch of flavor to these treats.

Makes 12 muffins.


3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar 
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (all purpose can be substituted)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup plain yogourt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c cherry jam


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. On medium low heat combine honey, oats, cinnamon, and vanilla. Heat until honey is warm. Remove from heat.
  3. In large mixing bowl beat together sugar, eggs and oil on medium high speed until well combined.
  4. In small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add half the flour mixture to the egg bowl and stir on low speed until just combined. 
  6. Add the yogurt and mix again. 
  7. Add the oat mixture and stir. 
  8. Add the last of the flour. Stir just until combined.
  9. Fill muffin tin about 1/2 way with batter.
  10. Add a tsp or so of cherry jam in the middle of each tin.
  11. Cover with a bit more batter.
  12. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden and tooth pick test comes out clean.
  13. Cool for ten minutes in tins and then remove muffins from tins and cool completely on wire rack.
