"This is an amazing gluten-free muffin recipe that can be adapted to almost any fresh berry or chopped fruit. The streusel topping sinks into the muffin as it bakes, giving it a lovely cobbler effect. Living gluten-free doesn't mean deprivation! Enjoy!" — Autumn1965

gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
gluten-free baking powder
pitted and chopped fresh cherries (including any juice from chopping)
gluten-free rolled oats
cold butter, cut into pieces
I chose to make this with AP flour and regular baking powder because we do not eat gluten free. I did add in an additional teaspoon of baking powder and a half teaspoon of salt. I added the cherry juice into the wet ingredients instead of waiting until the end (to prevent overmixing) and I tossed the cherries in the dry ingredients to help prevent sinking. I made no other changes. Baked at 350*, they were done at just over twenty minutes. My family made quick work of these, they were pretty much gone by mid-day. My husband actually called me at home to ask if I could make more. DELICIOUS!
These were pretty good. I thought they would have a bit flavor than they did, but it's a good base for me to build on. I did use gluten free flour, and I also added a splash of vanilla extract along with the almond. I used coconut oil and because we don't normally use white sugar, I used an unprocessed cane sugar in place of that. And I used dark brown sugar in the topping. I also used buttermilk instead of milk and added a pinch of baking soda. They are nice and tender but just a little bland. I think next time I'll add some grated orange or lemon zest or oil and see how that works out. The recipe's a great idea and a keeper, but it needs a little more flavor for us. Thanks for posting!
Great muffins! They really did taste like cherry cobbler. I did not use gluten-free products, but made as directed otherwise. I might use a few more cherries next time. Don't overfill or the streusel will run over the edges of the muffin cups. Made 15 muffins. Yum!
