Author Notes: This is the kind of muffin you can confidently rave about at parties and eat without feeling too guilty because it's not only loaded with seasonal cherries full of antioxidants but also has deep chocolate flavor along with few other healthy ingredients like whole wheat flour, flax seeds that replaces egg, and Greek yogurt to keep it soft and very moist. dixya
