Aren’t summers reserved for sitting in the yard all day sipping cold drinks and watching honey bees? (huge fan here). Or spend the long evenings in the parks – cycling, watching sunsets, kids and dogs play. Who wants to get sweaty in the kitchen! the options when you avoid cooking are getting takeaway but we are the weight loss tribe, so need quick and healthy recipes like these cute Bakewell cherry oats muffins.
They are golden-crusted o the top, soft inside and mildly sweet as I haven’t opted to add any refined sugar and replaced with additional fruit, the king of the recipe, Cherries. I have also not added any egg in my recipe as its one of those days I don’t eat eggs. But, hey, we are not professional recipe testers or eaters here. just one among the millions trying to lose weight and be healthy. I will give some notes on how you can incorporate eggs in the recipe notes.
How are cherry oats Bakewell oat muffins suitable for weight loss?
–>No refined sugar is added, rather we are adding a tiny amount of raw money+loads of cherries which make the muffins naturally sweet.

–>Using unsweetened almond milk and not adding any oils to it.

Ingredients for cherry Bakewell oats muffins
- Plain Oats(you could even powder them but I like them whole)
- Loads of cherries, pitted and chopped into small pieces.
- Pure raw honey for that hint of sweetness.
- Unsweetened almond milk to help mix our ingredients.
- And of course some flaked almonds, I want you to really use only flaked version as adding chopped ones really changes the overall taste of these muffins
If you want to add egg in the recipe, reduce or skip the milk. You could also lessen the content of oats by taking 1:1 of ripened banana and oats.
What diets are these Cherry Bakewell Oats Muffins are suitable for?
This recipe is suitable for vegan and glute-free groups. oats are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley so make sure your oats are completely free of these grains.
So double-check the ingredients if you are cooking for gluten-free consumers.
How many calories are there in these Bakewell oats muffins?
nearly less than 100 calories depending upon how much sweeteners you add, I am not a very sweet loving person so I added very little honey and more fruits.
