I picked up some dried cherries to use for a trail mix and I started thinking about how tasty they would be in a muffin! Since I love chocolate chip muffins, I decided to combine those two for these easy cherry chocolate chip muffins! The sweet chocolate chips and tart cherries make a perfect pair. These are great for a quick snack or a breakfast on your way out the door.

muffin ingredients


  • Flour– You’ll need all-purpose flour for this recipe. I haven’t tried it with gluten-free flour, so I can’t recommend it.
  • Sugar– You’ll need granulated sugar. If you’re using vanilla yogurt, you could reduce the sugar slightly.
  • Baking powder– This gives the muffins lift so you have fluffy muffins. Keep in mind you need baking soda and baking powder for this recipe.
  • Baking soda– This helps with lift and browning.
  • Yogurt– I used whole milk yogurt. You can use plain or vanilla. If using vanilla yogurt, you’ll have a sweeter muffin.
  • Egg– An egg helps with binding and texture.
  • Butter– This keeps the muffins perfectly moist. Be sure it’s melted but cooled. If it’s too warm, it could cook the egg.
  • Cherries– You’ll need dried cherries for this recipe. I recommend chopping the dried cherries into small pieces if the pieces are large.
  • Chocolate chips– I used mini chocolate chips so you get a little bit in each muffin, but regular chocolate chips are fine, too.
