Chocolate Cherry Muffins
- 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh cherries, pitted and coarsely chopped
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 374F and grease 12-14 muffin tins, or line with paper liners (I got 14 muffins out of this recipe).
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Stir in chocolate chips and cherries. If using buttermilk powder, add it in here with dry ingredients.
Add melted butter, beaten eggs, buttermilk and vanilla all at once. Stir until ingredients are just combined. Do not over-mix.
Divide batter among prepared muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
