  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda, and salt. In another small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together vegan sour cream, nondairy milk, canola oil, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. With a wooden spoon, fold in chocolate chips and cherries.

  4. Scoop muffin batter evenly between 12 muffin cups, filling them each 3/4ths of the way full. Bake muffins for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean or with a few crumbs. 

  5. Let cool in muffin pan completely before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Uneaten muffins can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 5 days or frozen for up to 2 months. 

Recipe Notes

If you can't find vegan sour cream, apple sauce can be used in its place.

Frozen cherries will work. If using frozen cherries, gently rinse cherries in cool water and strain them through a colander. Let the cherries sit for at least 30 minutes to ensure all the water has dripped off.
