Try these moist and flavorful muffins for breakfast or a tea time treat. Black cherry yogurt works like buttermilk to lend an amazingly rich texture but also delicious cherry flavor to these low-fat, low-calorie muffins. The convenience of boxed breakfast cereal and frozen cherries add nice texture here. Change the yogurt flavor and variety of frozen fruit to create a whole new flavor profile—blueberry yogurt and frozen blueberries, peach yogurt and chopped frozen peaches—or play with different combos for fun.
