Cherry Almond Muffins (Dairy & Gluten-Free)

I picked up some fresh Rainier Cherries from the Farmer’s Market to bake up a batch of cherry almond muffins as a gift to my dad for Father’s Day. Turning gluten-free just a few years ago, and having spent most of his 75 years eating gluten, he appreciates great tasting gluten-free food.

And today, in honor of Father’s Day, I want to give tribute to my dad. He is, in every sense of the word, what one would call a man’s man. Growing up, the food that was placed on our table was mainly wild game. He loved to hunt and fish and we ate everything from deer to elk, grouse to pheasant, and trout to salmon. For many years my dad was a carpenter and built beautiful custom homes. Today, whenever I smell fresh-cut wood from a saw, it brings my mind flooding back with great childhood memories of watching my dad hard at work with his hands. One of my favorite childhood memories was a vacation we took as a family to California. Three of us four kids were in the back of a pickup truck lying on a bed my dad had rigged up. There was a small canopy over us, with a window that allowed us to see through the front cab, where my little brother was sandwiched in-between my parents. Seatbelt laws did not exist back then, so we were free to roll around on the bed, playing games and singing songs. Life was pretty carefree, until I saw the look of panic on my mom’s face through the window. The truck was pulling a full size camper, and suddenly the truck had lost its breaks! We were flying down the highway going over 80 miles an hour and the speedometer continued to climb. I remember being a little scared but deep down inside I knew it was all going to be okay because my dad was “in control”. As he maneuvered between gearing down and tapping the emergency brake, he eventually brought us to a stop and was able to fix the problem. In my eyes, my dad could save the world.

Last night my husband and I went to see “Man of Steel” at the theater, a new rendition of Superman. It was an action packed movie, but for me, my dad will always be my super hero. Love you, Dad…Happy Father’s Day!

This is my handsome dad back in 1962, the year I was born.

And here he is today, at age 75, still as handsome as ever.

I used Rainier cherries for these muffins, which have a thin skin and thick creamy-yellow flesh,

but any cherry will do if you can’t find the Rainier variety.

Muffins-

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

1 egg (or egg replacer)

1/4 cup almond milk

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup superfine brown rice flour

1/4 cup tapioca starch

1/4 cup almond flour

1 1/2 cup fresh cherries, pitted & chopped

Streusel-

1/4 cup almond flour

2 Tbsp gluten-free oats

2 Tbsp coconut palm sugar

1/2 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp coconut oil

Icing-

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp almond extract

1-3 tsp almond milk

 

In a medium bowl, beat together coconut oil, honey, egg or egg replacer, and almond milk. Add in rice flour, tapioca starch and almond flour. Mix on medium high-speed for 3 minutes. Fold in chopped and pitted cherries gently. Spoon batter into muffin tins 2/3 full.

In small bowl, add almond flour, GF oats, coconut palm sugar, honey, and coconut oil. Mix with a fork or spoon until mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle a large pinch full on to the top of each muffin. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-22 minutes or until centers are firm. Remove from oven and completely cool.

In a small bowl, add powdered sugar, almond extract, and 1 teaspoon of almond milk at a time until a thick glaze forms. Add more powdered sugar if needed to make the right consistency. Form a lattice pattern on the top of each cooled muffin.

    Delicious! I used coconut nectar instead of honey and opted out of the streusel and icing. All the yummy coconut oil took a minute to absorb into the cake again, but once itmdid it was super dense and moist and buttery!

      That’s a great way to cut the sugar!

    Hello! These look amazing and I’m hoping you can answer a few questions for me. Do you think I could sub white rice flour as I have this at home? Also, I’m not sure I can find palm sugar…what would be a good substitute? Regular sugar? And where in a store might one find almond extract? :) Thanks!

      Hi Kiley,
      Yes, you could substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour. You can use regular white cane sugar in place of the palm sugar. I just prefer the palm because it is a low glycemic sugar and better for you than regular cane sugar. As for the almond extract, it is in the baking section by the vanilla and other extracts, often by the spices. Hope that helps. And yes, the muffins are quite yummy!

          Great! It sure is nice to have gluten-free flours becoming more main stream. Enjoy the recipe!

that way you actually get good guides In the 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli with Madeleine Vionnet rose to prominence. Both were known for their innovative designs while not shattering the fundamentals of fashion. Schiaparelli became popular with her black knitted white bow. In addition to their well stocked inventory, you'll find dozens of dresses under "clearance sale" where you could pick up a designer beaded dress in the mid $100s. Choose from animal print, solids, paisley, sequined, chiffon and more for a custom look that's uniquely you. Featured designers include Betsy Johnson, Shelli Segal, Shoshanna, Tracey Reese, Nicole Miller, Anna Sui and Faviana. Joining me on the call is our Chairman and CEO, Mr. Qiming Xu. Please note that we will be making a number of forward looking statements today and all such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations and assumptions mentioned today, due to a variety of factors that affect the company, including risk specified in the most recently filed Form 20 F.. Of course the fun does not end when you turn off the computer. You can play the fashion games any time, and this is the area that adults especially truly enjoy. The adult can head to the department store and gather up any number of terrific outfits to try on. See if the stones are set by prongs. The prong placements also set Juliana apart, by giving it a claw like appearance, which is far from the traditional setting. Since Juliana jewelry was handmade or handset, you can expect that every piece is set by a prong. While mainstream men kept it close cropped with side parts and slicked back dos, many guys sported long hair in an effort to blur gender lines and shake traditional standards of masculinity. In the late 1960s, some African American men embraced the trend popularized by the civil rights based is beautiful movement, adopting natural hairstyles and a wardrobe influenced by an African aesthetic, including brimless kofia hats. Horn rimmed glasses, aviators and large frames made a bold mark on eyewear during this fashionable decade.. The first five episodes of Aquarian Age are interesting in how they play out. With a lot of series, be it short like this or a full season show, would do what these five episodes do in the space of one or two episodes normally. For a half season show to do the first five episodes like this is surprising but it seems to really work in its favor.pornhub
