Cherry Colored Glasses Muffins

Whenever I add carrots or cherries to a recipe, it just looks like everything is right in my world. The sweet, pink tint is free antidepressants!  I'm not even really a big fan of the color pink.  I make exceptions for anything Hello Kitty (wink).

That old thought about "rose colored glasses" is so true!  If you've never owned pink colored lens shades, I recommend you try them.  It mos def improves your outlook.

I made a small batch of these, not wanting left overs.  This recipe is easily doubled to get a full dozen! 

Here's a little tip on muffin or corn bread making...  After you fill the muffin tins, let them rest a few minutes before baking.  It will give a nice crown to your finished product!  

Have a sunny Sunday!

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted margarine
1 medium ripe banana
2 tablespoons vegan, gluten free vanilla yogurt
1 cup GF baking mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
1/2 cup chopped frozen cherries
1/3 cup chocolate chips, optional

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENT ADDED ABOVE (chocolate chips)

You know your daughter works at Culver's when she asks you to add chocolate chips to the already banana, cherry recipe.  I won't even charge her extra for the third mix in!

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 6 cups of your muffin tin.  Whisk together the sugar and margarine.  Add the yogurt and the banana, breaking it into pieces as you do.  Smash the banana and whisk to combine.  Add the baking mix, baking soda, and salt.  Stir with a spoon just until moistened.  Stir in the cherries.

Spoon into your prepared pan.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.
