Whole Wheat Cherry Muffins

One year ago if someone would have mentioned whole wheat muffins I would have thought of dry, unappetizing bricks. I couldn’t be more wrong. These plant-based are delicious.

Now that I’ve been enlightened I think of delicious treats, add in a little fruit and I think of tiny bites of heaven. I love a good whole wheat product. 

Before we transitioned to a plant-based diet, my idea of muffins were closer to cupcakes. Super sweet and full of oil.

These muffins have no added fat or dairy making them a healthy choice.

Whole Wheat Cherry Muffins
Recipe type: Muffin
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup turbinado sugar
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 1 cup diced cherries (I use frozen cherries that I buy from Costco)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a big bowl mix all dry ingredients.
  3. Add applesauce and milk and mix.
  4. Add cherries and mix until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into paper muffins lines until ⅔ full.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Test for doneness with a toothpick then let cool.

These are a nice dessert, snack or as an addition to bunch.  You can substitute blueberries for the cherries for variety. These are not super sweet which I know a lot of you appreciate.

Cherry Muffins are whole wheat, plant-based and vegan.

  1. Fab and healthy! They look delicious!

  2. Love that there is no added fat!!

    • You don’t even miss the fat in these. My banana bread recipe is similar, you don’t realize it’s missing. I think I should call these guilt free because I don’t feel guilty about eating a couple or feeding them to my 1 year old.

  3. i just made these and they are YUMMY. even my 3 year old loved them! yay, breakfast! moist and delish, not at all like health food store muffins. i will definitely be making these again. thank you so much for the recipe 🙂

  4. I made these tonight and they are amazing! I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Thanks for posting!
