3/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup pistachios, chopped, with 1/4 cup reserved for the top
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
1/2 cup raw local honey
6 oz. chopped thawed frozen cherries, roughly chopped
3 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Prep Time: 10 minutes



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray, or line with paper muffin cups.

In a small bowl mix flaxseed meal and water.  Let rest for 2-3 minutes.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together coconut flour, cocoa powder, pistachios, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  If using the dark chocolate chips add at this time.  Set aside.

In a separate medium mixing bowl, combine yogurt and honey.  Gently stir in ground flaxseed (with water), cherries and coconut oil.

Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined.  Spoon batter into muffin tin.  Each cup should be 3/4 full.  Top with reserved pistachios.  Bake for 22-26 minutes.  Let rest 10 minutes in muffin pan, then tip out onto cooling rack.

Makes 12 muffins.
