      1/4 tsp salt
      1/4 cup buttermilk OR dairy-free substitute
      2 large eggs
      1/2 tsp almond extract
      1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour blend
      1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
      2 cups unsweetened, pitted, drained dark cherries – cut cherries in half and reserve juice
      1/2 tsp guar gum (add only if the gluten-free flour blend you use does not contain xanthan or guar gum)
      Cherry Juice Glaze-
      1 cup reserved cherry juice
      1/4 cup arrowroot starch OR cornstarch
      1/2 cup sugar
      1/2 tsp almond extract, optional
      Preheat oven to 375° F / 190°
      Butter or use ‘Pam’ to oil muffin tins (or cake pan)
      Place sugar, 1/4 cup of the toasted almonds, butter and salt in a food processor bowl and pulse until the nuts are finely ground and the mixture is well combined.
      Add buttermilk or dairy-free substitute, eggs and almond extract and pulse until the mixture is smooth.

      Pour the batter into a mixing bowl and fold in prepared cherries. Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full with batter (or add all to cake pan).
