Orange Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Orange Chocolate Cherry Muffins

These Orange Chocolate Cherry Muffins are hearty, chocolatey and moist. And with 12-grain flour and oatmeal, these are clean eating fibre-y goodness. Breakfast or on-the-go snack, these muffins are perfect! And with a touch of orange, fresh cherries and cocoa, you will need to pack more than one in your lunch bag 😉 .




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, oats, coconut sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, add the beaten egg, almond milk, olive oil, orange juice, orange zest and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. No need to over mix. Fold in the cherries.
  5. Pour batter into muffin cups and sprinkle a spoonful or two of granola on top. (I used the homemade grain-free granola from this Coconut Banana Cherry Chip Smoothie Bowl recipe).
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool for another 20 minutes.
  8. Store in an airtight container on the counter and enjoy within 3-4 days.


  1. If you want to freeze these muffins, I would make them without the granola topping as the granola may lose a bit of its crunch factor.
