I'm always looking for new muffin recipes. They are a breakfast staple in my house! Once a week I give my kids a muffin, with a yogurt, and some fruit for breakfast. I found these and have been eyeing them for awhile.
My son takes a weekly "Cook and a Book" class where the teacher reads a children's picture book and then they cook/make a related food. Last week they made buttermilk pancakes making homemade buttermilk using vinegar and regular milk! I learn something new every day! Boy has my cooking changed with this new tidbit of info! I didn't make recipes that called for small amounts of buttermilk because it was expensive and I hated only using a little bit. Well, now that I can make homemade buttermilk....watch out! So, this little aside was to tell you that I used homemade buttermilk in this recipe!
These were super easy to make! I mean, one bowl, easy! The kids helped me make these and of course we had to try one as soon as they came out of the oven! Delicious!

1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2/3-3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cherries
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients, including the sugar. Add the egg and oil and enough buttermilk to make a smooth, thick batter. Fold in the chips and cherries. Bake in a greased muffin tin 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until mostly golden brown. (The buttermilk keeps the muffins on the pale side).
