Cherry Almond Muffins

I remember growing up my grandmother had a cherry tree in her backyard and she always had extra cherries in the Spring and Summer to share with us when we visited. Now that I am getting settled in our own place, I am trying new recipes for my son and myself. My son loves muffins and instead of buying muffins at the store, I wanted to start baking again. We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week! 

Cherry Almond Muffins

My son and I love muffins. They make a quick breakfast or snack any time of day! I used to buy them in the bakery at our local grocery store and while they tasted good, I knew it would be much more fun if I made my own!
