These whole wheat , refined Sugar free Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins are soft and moist.Include these healthy and wholesome muffins to your breakfast menu.
I baked these super moist muffins to use up probably the last box of cherries I had bought. Cheery season is almost over and will give their appearance only next year. This year have used cherries in almost everything. I had made Cheery Red Wine compote ( works very good as a dessert topping) , smoothies , have added them to salads , muffins. But still I can never have enough of them.
First time I made these muffins with only all purpose flour. The texture was light and fluffy. My daughter just loved them and why not it was soft, loaded with cherries and chocolate chips. The next time when I did them, replaced half of the flour with Whole wheat flour. And believe me the difference was hard to notice.
Muffins are always quick and easy to bake. No blender or no creaming of butter and sugar required. Just mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Pour wet mixer to the dry ingredients, mix and bake. To be honest i like my muffins a bit dense, not cake like. But if the mixing goes wrong then they might turn more dense and heavy. So never ever over mix the batter.
The other thing that is good about muffins are you can add different fruits, dry fruits to it and make a wholesome breakfast. I will try substituting cherries with Apple next time, I am sure it will not disappoint me.
