Fresh cherries are in the season right now and someone got me a couple of small boxes from Himachal, it took me back to the time when I was living in Delhi and boxes would come from Shimla every summer. We would eat it by the dozen and then mum would make some ice cream out of it. When the boxes landed home, me and the child spend more than an evening together watching random shows on TV while eating cherries and playing with the shapes of the seeds in them and other random games, when the cherries were still left I wondered what next. To bake something with it was a natural l I guess.
These Cherry Muesli muffins with Muesli Streusel are 50% whole wheat, low in added sugar and have pretty much everything tick marked for them when it comes to the health quotient and they are so delicious that you just won’t stop at one and that is the only danger with them, eating one too many. The Streusel is also a healthier version of the standard butter and sugar Streusel, infact some might argue if it is a Streusel at all but it works in getting the crunch and yet keeping the muffin fit for breakfast.
I think muffins are perfect on the go breakfast, grab one (or two), a pack of juice and milk along with it and it makes the perfect breakfast. They can also be made ahead and reducing the fuss in the working morning or have it as one of the items in the weekend brunch or make it and pack it in kids snack box. I mean how much more versatile can one dish get.
So without further ado, here are the Cherry Muesli muffins with Muesli Streusel, share one or more with me over a cup of coffee and conversation, I’d love that!
