Cherry Pie Muffins

These may just be the most amazing things that have ever crossed my lips. The recipe comes from Cheeky Kitchen. The combination of coconut oil and honey is unbelievable.  I'm trying to figure out what other fruits would work in this recipe.  

For the muffins:
1 egg
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. honey
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. almond milk
2 c. fresh cherries, pitted & halved
For the streusel:
1/4 c. almond flour
2 T. Coach's Oats
2 T. powdered sugar
1/2 T. honey
1 T. coconut oil
For the latticed drizzle:
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1-3 T. milk
In a large bowl. beat together all muffin ingredients until well mixed. (If you are baking at low altitudes, increase the baking powder by 1/2 tsp.) Spoon mixed batter into a muffin tin prepared with cupcake wrappers. In a medium bowl, use a fork to combine all ingredients until a coarse crumb results. Sprinkle the streusel over the batter in each muffin tin (about 1-1 1/2 tsp. per each), then bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, or until the center of the muffins bounce back to the touch. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
