  • 2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour , sifted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil liquid
  • 1 cup oat milk or your favorite plant-based milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbs unsweetened Organic applesauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate morsels divided
  • 1 cup cherries roughly chopped
  • 15 whole cherries pitted and halved


  • Pre-heat oven to 360°F/180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, whisk, then add in coconut oil, almond milk, and apple cider vinegar and whisk again until it's a smooth batter.
  • Fold in half of the chopped chocolate and the halved cherries. 
  • Fill the muffin batter in muffin wrappers or use a lightly oiled muffin pan. Add the rest of the chopped chocolate and put a whole, pitted cherry on top of each muffin. Bake the muffins in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden. Let them cool off a bit and enjoy!


I add applesauce to all of my muffin recipes. It makes them super moist and even more delicious. Because of this additional incorporation of liquid, I tack on about 5-7 more minutes of baking time. I also used vegan dark chocolate morsels!
