Ingredients

  • 10 ounces all-purpose flour (approximately 2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I used full fat)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ΒΌ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup very ripe apricots, chopped (approximately 3)
  • 10 sweet or 13 sour cherries, chopped
  • 2/3 cup ripe peaches, chopped (approximately 1)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large, 12-cup muffin tin (I used baking spray with flour). You can also use cupcake liners, but I recommend lightly spraying them with baking spray to prevent the paper from sticking to the muffins.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • In a separate large bowl, vigorously whisk together the eggs, yogurt, vanilla and melted coconut oil.
  • Immediately pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a spatula to gently fold, while also simultaneously folding in the apricots, cherries and peaches. Stir until just combined; do not over-mix.
  • Fill the muffin tins evenly. The can be filled almost to the max, but leave some space at the top (think 4/5 full at most).
  • Bake for 22-23 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from one of the center muffins. Allow to cool for several minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

I did not peel the peaches or apricots, and don't find it to be a necessary step. If the apricots are very ripe, they will become very mushy and turn into almost a puree when chopped. This is fine!
