Vegan Cherry Chocolate Muffins

Cherry Chocolate Muffins

We got a huge container of cherries from my boyfriend’s parents, but we haven’t had the time to eat them all because we only had a couple of days before heading out of town for a few days for our Barcelona trip.

That’s why I baked the cherries into muffins – and these delicious vegan Cherry Chocolate Muffins were the result. Because muffins are a totally acceptable little gift and I gave some of the muffins back to my boyfriend’s parents. I just upgraded the cherries.

I love the combination of cherries and chocolate! It’s like a white version of Black Forest Cake – White Forest, so to say :D

I was really excited to try these, but they came out pretty bad. I wonder if it's because there wasn't really an egg substitute? I followed the instructions pretty spot on.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear they didn't turn out as they should. What was the problem? Didn't they puff up? Were they not sweet enough?

I have some cherries in my freezer right now that could use a little "upgrading" I think ;) Cherries are yummy for snacking and all (especially fresh peak-of-summer ones!) but...muffins. These look so marvelously fluffy and amazing! One of the best combos we may have mentioned a few times recently :D

Oh I love having frozen fruits. My freezer is full of them. I never manage to finish all the fruits before leaving for vacays, so I always throw them in the freezer and forget about them. Only to find them a few months later. Then they end up in nice cream, muffins or cakes :) But I exactly know that I have frozen cherries there as well. It's a good feeling knowing that I can make these muffins again any time :) - no matter the season.
