We love muffins in our family… and I love baking them…

There’s something slightly luxurious about sitting down with a coffee and and home made muffin… And as I’ve gotten faster and more adept at making them, I tend to eye up the ones in cafes a little scornfully… especially now that I know I can make them just as beautiful for just a fraction of the cost.

Micah and Chris both love themĀ  – and so handy to freeze and have as a ready lunch treat.

So… when I found these ‘rich and cakey’ Christmas muffins, I had to give them a try.

The verdict?? Chris says they’re the best I’ve ever made! (not that he’s biased or anything!)

They may look plain… but inside they are full of chunky pieces of white chocolate and macadamia nuts…YUM!

So I thought I’d share my recipe with you… White Christmas Muffins – a real chrismassy ‘cafe at home’ treat!
