Ingredients

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 - 1 1/2 dl Granulated sweetener (sugar free)
  • 1/2 dl Apple sauce
  • 1/2 dl Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Milk (I used oat milk)
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil melted
  • 1 1/2 dl Oat flour
  • 1/2 dl Corn flour
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom
  • 1/3 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/3 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 1 dl Cherries pitted cut into smaller pieces
  • 1/2 dl Chocolate chips (sugar free)

For the topping (optional)

  • 1/2 dl Cream cheese
  • 1/4 dl Greek yogurt
  • 1/2-1 tbsp Sweetener
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon juice
  • 5 Cherries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius.
  • Combine oat flour, corn flour, cardamom, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Whisk the egg and sugar together until slightly fluffy and the mixture has turned a little pale in a separate bowl.
  • Add apple sauce, greek yogurt and coconut oil and whisk until incorporated.
  • Little by little add the dry ingredients to the wet, stir in between. Do not stir too long, just until you have a smooth batter.
  • Fold in cherry pieces and chocolate chips.
  • Divide the batter between five muffin tins. Bake in the oven for 18-21 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Take out and let the muffins cool completely.
  • Whisk together cream cheese, greek yogurt, sweetener and lemon juicy until it becomes fluffy. Place in the fridge until ready to serve. (The topping is optional)
  • Top the muffins using a piping tool or just spread it over the muffins using a spoon as I did. Top each muffin with a cherry.
