Trim Healthy Mama Chocolate-Covered Cherry Muffins Review

Because the Trim Healthy Mama Oatmeal on the Go Cups were so delicious, I thought I'd try another recipe from the muffins chapter of the new Trim Healthy Mama Trim Healthy Table cookbook. The Chocolate Covered Cherry Muffins are an Energizing meal and you will find the recipe on page 367.  It is a No Special Ingredient and Dairy Free recipe. 

The recipe states it would make 12 muffins. My recipe made 12 muffins, plus

Another 8 muffins!  There would have been no way to fit all this batter into twelve muffin liners.  Please pardon the batter drips on the pans.  I wish I could say my assistant did that; but, I have no assistant...  And these are my dear mother's muffin tins! I remember many a blueberry muffin she made in these pans.  I have many fond memories of my mother's baking and cooking and meals and picnics and family gatherings.  I learned much from my mother, and I am so grateful.

Don't they look yummy?

And chocolatey?

And cherries are so good for us! Do you all enjoy cherries? We do!

I only smeared some butter on it because the recipe said to do this and you know, I always try to follow the recipe exactly the first time!

I felt like I used too many bowls making this recipe.  Not sure if it was me, or the recipe.  I shared these muffins with a couple friends, and they liked them.  I liked them too; but I still think the Oatmeal on the Go Cups are my current favorite. They have a good cake like texture. I can peel the baking liner off them and eat them without crumbs or mess.  I store them in the refrigerator and usually eat them after an E meal, as a dessert.

It is worth a try making these, Mama's.  If you do, please let me know if you used 3 or 4 bowls, or if it was just me!
