An Easy Treat For Any Time Of Day

Although the original cherry muffins make a perfect breakfast. I would happily eat these any time of the day.

Why not try them for an afternoon snack or a sweet option with your lunch.

These muffins are a great meal prep option, make on meal prep day, and enjoy them all week long.

Make These Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Combine all of the dry ingredients together, then make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and add the yogurt, eggs, milk, and oil. Stir to combine until no dry spots appear.

Chop or puree your cherries and add them to the mixture along with as many chocolate chips as you would like.

Line your muffin tray with liners and then fill each 2/3 of the way up.

Bake for 24-28 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
