READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 12 muffins




  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, making sure that there are no lumps of brown sugar. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the milk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Gently stir in 1 cup of the macadamia nuts.
  • Spoon or scoop the batter into the muffin cups (they will be almost full). Sprinkle with the reserved ½ cup of nuts.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until lightly golden, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the muffin comes out with moist crumbs attached. Serve warm.
