Makes 33 muffins

- 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 cup dried Montmorency tart cherries
- 1/3 cup blanched sliced almonds, plus more for topping
- Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with silicone muffin liners.
- In a large bowl, whisk together almond milk, applesauce, melted butter, and almond extract.
- Add oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, tart cherries, and almonds. Stir until just combined.
- Spoon mixture into muffin cups, filling to the top. Sprinkle slivered almonds on top of each muffin.
