  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed and softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups plain fat-free or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh Chilean cherries, pitted and chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips (about 6 ounces by weight)
  • Baking spray or paper liners


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line muffin tin with paper liners or spray with nonstick baking spray. In a large bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of electric mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low; alternate flour mixture and yogurt until incorporated. Remove bowl from mixer, gently fold in cherries and chocolate by hand. Divide batter among muffin tins using a cookie scoop. Batter is very thick. Bake 15-20 minutes, rotating half way through. Test muffin by inserting skewer in the center. Skewer should come out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
