  3. In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, sugar, honey, egg whites, Greeek yogurt, and vanilla extract.

  4. Whisk them all together until smooth, with no yogurt lumps remaining.

  6. Slowly stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to overmix.

  7. Get any dry pockets of flour out.

  8. Fold in the cherries. The batter will be a little chunky. This is okay.

  13. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Recipe Notes

  • The muffins stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • Freezing Instructions: For longer storage, freeze the muffins for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator and heat up in the microwave if desired.
  • Sifting: If the cocoa powder has lumps, sift it with the dry ingredients to avoid any dry cocoa powder lumps in the muffins.
