Cherry Almond Yogurt Muffins and Old Bay Recipe Contest

by Amie on December 9, 2009

Well, there you have it…this is the last of my week stretch of Stonyfield yogurt recipes.  I saved the best for last, of course.  These tasty muffins pack a healthy dose of fiber and protein thanks to the oats, whole wheat flour and cherries and almonds. Whip these up for a morning treat, toasted with marmalade or enjoy them for your evening dessert crumbled atop a bowl of Stonyfield yogurt.  Yum.  Stay tuned for a Stonyfield giveaway gift-basket later this week.


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • 2 cups Oikos plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. all spice
  • Dash of sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add dried cherries, almonds and sea salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and Oikos plain Greek yogurt together.
  • Add melted butter and applesauce to the Oikos mixture; whisk to combine.
  • Gently fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients until moistened.  Be sure not to over mix.
  • Divide batter among 12 muffin cups sprayed with non-stick baking spray.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and firm.
  • Enjoy with an additional spread or dollop of Oikos plain Greek yogurt

Cherry and Almond like the hot and awesome version of peas and carrots. I love them together and these muffins look too good to pass up! Can’t wait to try them.

Hi. Really nice information on Maqui Berry. I discovered your nice blog while exploring google. For the past few days I’ve been seeking to discover more. Specially anything to do with the dieting talk. I’ve heard it all and my sister continues pressing her new weight loss craze on me. So I’m happy I encountered you. Take care!
