1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tin with liners** and spray with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Add applesauce, milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and whisk well to combine. Add cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon and whisk until combined.
Add coconut flour and stir well. Add chocolate chips and cherries; give a few gentle stirs to incorporate. Using large ice cream scoop, divide batter between 12 muffin tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out sort of clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let muffins cool off another 15 minutes to firm up.
