These muffins are very easy and so delicious.  They can be made with or without chocolate chips and depending on the chips you use, vegan or not.  High quality chocolate generally does not contain dairy, but check the ingredients.  My family always asks for these Cherry Muffins.  Hope yours does, too!

For this recipe, we are using a whole wheat pastry flour. Paired with the oats, these cherry muffins offer a hearty muffin base. There’s a minimal amount of added sugar, giving just the right amount of sweetness to these muffins!

You are going to love the cherry and chocolate pairing and trust me when I say you’ll never know they’re vegan!
