Cherry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Made with fresh cherries, cherry chocolate chunk muffins are the perfect one bowl, mix by hand, sweet treat for summer breakfasts or snacks.

I love fresh cherries.  Looooove fresh cherries.  Sour or sweet.  Dark red bing cherries or golden yellow Ranier cherries.  I love them all.

Every year, I say I’m going to bake something with fresh cherries… but then I just wind up eating them all instead.  I can’t help myself.

This year, however — armed with a new 4 at a time cherry pitter (Amazon links are affiliate) and an adorable little 2 year old who loves pulling off the stems and lining the cherries up in the pitter, I finally made my fresh cherry baking dreams come true.

Not once, but twice!

That’s right, TWO fresh cherry baking recipes, headed your way!  And if you include the Watermelon Cherry Popsicles I shared in July (not technically baking, however), that’s three fresh cherry recipes!  #cherrygoals
