  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 c. white whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flax seed
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. canola oil or 1/4 c. oil plus 1/4 c. melted butter

  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 to 1.5 c. pitted sour cherries

  • Preheat oven to 375° F and spray muffin tins with non-stick pan spray.
  • Whisk together the flours, flax seed, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, blend together the eggs, oil (or oil and butter), Greek yogurt, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  • Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the blended liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently mix together just until moistened. There should still be streaks of flour visible.
