Preheat oven to 180C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Mix well. Stir in the dried cherries.

In another bowl, beat the egg lightly. Stir in oil, agave and yogurt until well combined. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients.
