White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Muffins

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Muffins on pinck cloth napkin.

Several months ago, I received a big bag of macadamia nuts from Oh! Nuts. I have used them in a variety of recipes including  Coconut and Macadamia Crusted Chicken, Blueberry Muffins, as a salad topping, and in banana pancakes. In their online store, Oh! Nuts carries practically every imaginable nut and dried fruit, plus a selection of candies. All of their products are kosher and exceptionally fresh. You can really tell the difference between their nuts and those you buy off of the grocery store shelf. Plus I love that they come packaged in convenient zip top bags.

When coming up with recipes ideas for the macadamia nuts, I felt it obligatory to use a macadamia nut/ white chocolate combination in something. They are just such natural bed fellows.

Hence- White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Muffins.

Macadamia nuts with their buttery, but mild flavor are in my opinion one of the best nuts to bake with. They add a nice crunch and texture contrast without overpowering any of the other flavors.
