  1. Preheat the oven to 400 ºF. Grease a muffin pan with olive oil. Don't use muffin pan liners for this recipe, the muffins will get stuck to them.
  2. Cut cherries in quarters.
  3. In a large bowl mix applesauce, sugar, honey, eggs and yogurt.
  4. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Add salt and whisk together. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Don't overmix!
  5. Add cherry and stir. The batter will be chunky.
  6. Divide batter evenly between the pans. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 ºF and bake for 15 more minutes. Transfer to the cooling rack and let cool for 10 minutes, then take out of the pan.
