Cherries have started making an appearance in grocery stores… which means… I’m going to eat them, bake with them, and cook with them as often as possible!

Starting with these Paleo Chocolate Cherry Muffins. These gluten-free and Paleo muffins are fluffy, chocolatey and bursting with warm juicy cherries.

When chocolate and cherries are mixed together, it really is hard to go wrong.

Actually when anything with cherries happens, it’s hard to go wrong. 🙂 Cherries are my absolute all time favorite fruit.

Nectarines come in at a close second.

And I have several fruit tied for third place. ( grapefruit, peaches, watermelon)

I actually updated an old recipe here. Well update may not be the right word. I saw that I had a chocolate cherry muffin recipe on the blog and disliked the photos and disliked the recipe ( I’m a much better paleo baker now than 4 years ago).

So, I decided to scrap the old recipe and come up with a new one. So I guess my old mediocre recipe inspired this new one?

And this new one— these Paleo Chocolate Cherry Muffins— are scrumptious! SOOO much better than my old recipe. I am super excited about these.

I’m happy to be posting this recipe today! I didn’t know if I would have time, which sounds crazy… I have recipes and photos ready to be turned into blog posts until July BUT I didn’t anticipate actually writing the post and editing photos could be hard to manage with a new baby.

(Silly me– also she’s currently 6 weeks old and the 6 week growth spurt and sleep regression is no joke!)

Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
