Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins – Deliciously moist vanilla muffins loaded with chocolate chips and chopped cherries. A perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack!
These Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins were requested by my boyfriend, Ben. He asked if I could make something with cherries (he loves cherries!), so I quickly got to it, and made these delicious muffins for him. And me. 🙂
As you can see here, these muffins are loaded with chocolate chips and chopped cherries. Just how we like them. Of course, you can use less if the amounts used here are too much for your tastes.
Or you could even replace the chocolate chips or cherries with your favourite add-ins!
How to make Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins
Ingredients you’ll need:
- plain/all-purpose flour
- caster/granulated sugar
- baking powder
- baking soda
- large eggs
- unsalted butter
- Greek-style yogurt
- vanilla extract
- chocolate chips
To make these muffins, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Whisk together the eggs, butter, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and cherries.
Divide the batter evenly between a muffin pan lined with muffin cases, and bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
