    Ingredients

    • 1 can nonstick cooking spray

    • 1/2 cup sugar

    • 1/3 cup sucralose

    • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest

    • 2 cups flour

    • 3/4cup chia seeds

    • 1 teaspoon baking soda

    • 2 teaspoons baking powder

    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    • 4 tablespoons canola oil

    • 1/3 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt

    • 3/4 cup liquefied watermelon juice

    • 1/2 cup egg substitute

    • 1 cup dried tart cherries

    • 1 lemon, juice only

    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    • 2 tablespoons sugar

    Directions

    • Heat oven to 375 F. Spray 12-piece muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    • In large bowl, combine sugar, sucralose and lemon zest. Use fingers to rub zest into sugar until fragrant. Add flour, chia seeds, baking soda, baking powder and salt; thoroughly mix. Set aside.
    • In medium bowl, whisk oil, yogurt, watermelon juice and egg substitute until thoroughly blended. Add cherries, lemon juice and vanilla.
    • Add liquid mixture to flour mixture. Gently toss until incorporated. Avoid overbeating or muffins will be flat and tough. Spoon evenly into muffin pan. Top each muffin with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
    • Bake 15-17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Remove from oven, allow to sit 5 minutes then transfer muffins to cooling rack.
