Whenever we introduce a new product, our Chef creates something new with it. This new sweet sauce turned into a delicious baked treat: the Ultimate Cherry Republic Breakfast Muffin. These muffins are good for breakfast, as a sidekick to coffee, or for something special with guests. They are just plain good....
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 cup Plain Yogurt
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 cup Caramel Flavored Cherry Applesauce
- 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour

- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt

- 1 cup Triple Cherry Granola (divided)

- Line muffin pan with paper cups or grease 5 X 9 inch loaf pan.
- Combine Eggs, Yogurt, Vanilla, and Cherry Applesauce with a whisk in a large mixing bowl.
- Combine Sugar, Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, and Cinnamon in a separate bowl with a whisk or fork.
- Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
- As the wet and dry ingredients come together, add 1/2 cup of granola and fold just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
