Cherry Oatmeal Muffins #TwelveLoaves

cherry oatmeal muffinsSo happy to start the month with a fabulous recipe, and such a delicious ingredient. Cherries are my number one, well besides strawberries in the summer, and the #TwelveLoaves team, had created a bunch of delicious and creative recipes for you to enjoy this summer.
I made a good for you muffin, low in sugar but pack with the cherry flavor, some fiber came to the party to add some fiver to the mix and of course cherries, in this case I used frozen because sometime you need to work with what you have.
This are perfect for a pick me up or as a complement to breakfast, definitely a delicious way to start of end you day.
Hope you like them and enjoy.
