Cherry Oatmeal Muffins
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
3 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a standard 12-cup muffin tin by greasing, or use paper liners.
In a small bowl, toss together walnuts, cherries, and 1 teaspoon flour. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine remaining flour, baking powder, salt, and oats; stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, cream butter and brown sugar together. Stir in milk and egg. Add butter mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are incorporated. Fold in the walnut mixture. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, dividing the batter evenly. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
