Coconut & Macadamia Muffins

Because it’s Monday and it’s been a while since I’ve made some muffins.


212 g flour
100 g sugar + 25 g sugar for topping
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
227 g milk
50 g vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 425F.  Spray muffin tin with baking spray.

Chop coconut and macadamia nuts and toast them until browned. Set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, salt, & baking powder in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined.  Do not over mix.

Fold in half of the toasted coconut and macadamia nut mixture.

Fill muffin cups.

Combine the 25g of sugar with the rest of the nut mixture and sprinkle on top of muffins before baking.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
