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. πŸ˜‰

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!

Fill the muffin cases until nearly to the top, and you’re ready to bake! These muffins take about 15 – 20 minutes on 200C/400F, then just let them cool before you devour them. Saying that, these muffins are SO good when they’re still warm. Try warming one up on day 2!

I love this muffin recipe. It calls for melted butter so no creaming method required. Simply whisk the dry ingredients together in one bowl, then whisk together the wet ingredients in another. Gently combine the two together, then fold in the chocolate chips and cherries. Quick and simple!

    I love the cherry/chocolate combination – your boyfriend has great taste. πŸ˜‰ I just made a batch of cherry chocolate chunk lactation cookies for a new mom friend – I’ll have to make some muffins, next!

    I baked these yesterday and they were absolutely delicious. I used coconut sugar and coconut yoghurt as substitutes and they turned out beautifully – thank you so much for such a lovely recipe. These will go in my folder of favourites!xx
