Every gal needs some chocolate in her life so I made these for my gluten free friends at Bible Study that way they could enjoy the snacks too. You would never guess that they are gluten free. I bet these would be amazing with chocolate icing but I loved them just how they where. I’m thinking about making these for my Tea with my younger girls and their friends this Sunday, so I’ll probably make a icing for them then.
Chocolate Cherry Coconut Flour Muffins
- 1/2 cup sucant or 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/2 cup whole fat coconut milk
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup cherries, quartered (frozen, fresh or canned)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 3 eggs, pastured
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients and stir until throughly mixed. If the batter is too dry add a couple table spoons of coconut milk at a time until it is wet.The batter will be thick but you don't want it dry. Coconut flour absorbs liquid like a sponge so you want to be sure to add sufficient liquid.
- Gently fold in the cherries.
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Grease your muffin tin with coconut oil or use muffin papers.
- Spoon the batter into the tin 2/3 of the way full.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- You will know that the muffins are done when you poke the center of a muffin with a tooth pick or fork and it comes out clean.
Do you like my little friend that thought the muffin looked good?

I found you through your guest post at Passionate Homemaking, and I am SO excited about this recipe you have no idea. I got a great deal on cherries at a farmer’s market so I pitted them and froze them, and I’ve been looking for a gluten-free chocolate cherry SOMETHING to make with them. I have almost all the ingredients, just have to get the honey. Thank you!
Anonymous, yes, I used canned coconut milk. Thai Kitchen is my favorite. I plan on learning to make my own sometime soon. It’s much more frugal!
Do you use the coconut milk in the can?

Your muffins sound delicious! I love chocolate and cherries together, and the coconut flour would give a lovely flavour as well as being gluten free. Thank you for sharing this recipe with the Hearth and Soul hop.
