Chocolate-Cherry Muffins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups cherries, pitted
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease and line a muffin tin. In a bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Add the oats and blend. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix the eggs and brown sugar. Add the melted butter and combine. In alternating additions, add the flour mixture and milk. Add the cherries and chocolate chips. Divide the batter between the muffin cups and bake for approximately 20 minutes (they only took 15 minutes in my oven, so keep an eye on them!) or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  3. Helpful hints:
  4. Toss the cherries with a light powdering of flour so their color doesn’t “leach” into the muffins. Sprinkling cinnamon into the batter will spice the muffins up!
