Banana Muffins with White Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts

I kind of enjoy baking while on vacation, especially when I have access to some fun tropical ingredients. It's easy to be inspired by the local produce produce. Last time we were in Maui, I made Lemon Coconut Scones and Maui Mango Ginger Granita. These were a great breakfast treat and the macadamia nuts added a nice crunch to each bite. 

I took these shots down at the beach in front of where we are staying.  This little crab totally posed for my pictures. 

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

  1. Thanks a lot! I will try this tomorrow :) I always thought that you have plenty of followers but now i see you have 205?! Something happened or i was wrong? If i am wrong, trust me You deserve more !! I really like your DIYs :) Take care!! :)

    1. Thanks, you are too sweet. Nothing's wrong - 205 is correct. But with such great followers as you, why would I need more? :)

    2. 1. What is the cup size? I always tried Turkish blog's recipes and i cant be sure it is the same size or sth else. 2. Is it okey if i use strained yogurt?

    3. I found this blog about food. http://cafefernando.com/ And i learnt that american cup= our water glass :) I bought the yogurt but ofc it is Turkish, too :D I am baking it right now :D

    4. I hope they turned out for you. 1 cup is 8 fluid ounces. And Turkish yogurt would be perfect!

  2. I made your banana choc chip muffins this a.m., it's my go-to muffin recipe and I put different add-ins based on what I've got. This muffin recipe is a little different but sounds good too!!

    1. It's totally based on that recipe. This is a lot sweeter with the white Choc, almost more of a dessert.

  3. Now THIS would be one pleasant way to start the morning! These muffins look amazing.
