Memorial Day Weekend: gluten-free cacao muffins with cherries

This weekend is the one before Memorial Day, celebrated every last Monday in May in the United States to honor fallen soldiers in battle. Although originally established to commemorate the fallen soldiers in the Civil War, after the First World War it was decided to extend it to all the fallen soldiers in all the wars to which the country has participated.

This day is also an occasion to be with family, for this reason, today I propose a very simple and comfortable recipe to take, to be able to have breakfast with the families on this day.
