CherryMan Chia Mini Muffins


14 servings (3 muffins per serving)

  • 1 (10 oz) jar of CherryMan Maraschino Cherries, drained
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ plain 0% Greek yogurt
  • ½ c brown sugar
  • 1/3 c extra-virgin olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 small orange (about 5 tbs. juice)
  • 1 tbs. chia seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease or line a mini muffin tin.

  2. Slice 12 cherries into quarters (these will be placed on top of each muffin), and chop remaining cherries. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk to combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, yogurt, sugar, oil, and orange juice/zest until thoroughly combined. Pour into dry mixture and stir just until blended. Gently fold in the chopped cherries and the chia seeds.

  5. Fill each muffin with 1 tablespoon of batter and top with one of the cherry quarters. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 12 minutes. Refrigerate or freeze leftover muffins in an airtight container.
