Soft and sweet gluten-free mocha cherry muffins that are super moist and full of chocolatey goodness! Rich and decadent with a trio of amazing flavors…the combination of coffee, chocolate, and sweet cherries can’t be beat. Whole grain, gluten-free, and no added sugar!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been obsessed with the combo of chocolate and cherries together lately. I’ve always been a huge fan of fruit and chocolate together…banana and chocolate, orange and chocolate, strawberries and chocolate…but cherries and chocolate is quickly becoming a new favorite! I also think it’s a perfect pairing for the holiday season. It’s a little non-traditional when you consider flavors like gingerbread, snickerdoodle, and chocolate peppermint…but I think chocolate + cherry deserves to have its day. Especially when you throw in a little coffee too! 😉
