A sweet little recipe that goes hand in hand with your morning coffee. Moist, nutty, golden-topped, flecked with orange zest, and dotted with big and small white chocolate chunks. Everything you want in a mid-morning treat – with a cherry on top!
½ cup cashew meal
1 ½ cups almond meal
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp bicarb soda
¼ cup organic butter – melted
½ cup honey
¼ cup thick plain yoghurt
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tbsp orange zest
1 cup white chocolate – roughly chopped, I like to keep some big chunks in the mix
8 fresh whole cherries
Cane sugar – optional
Preheat oven to 180C
Prepare a muffin tray by lightly greasing, lining with baking paper or with muffin cases.
Mix the cashew meal, almond meal, salt, baking powder and bicarb soda in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix together all of the wet ingredients – the melted butter, honey, yoghurt, eggs and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until well incorporated. Gently fold in the white chocolate chunks and orange zest.
Pour into the prepared muffin tray. Place a cherry in the centre of each muffin and sprinkle the tops with some cane sugar.
Pop into the oven to bake for 25 minutes until golden brown on top.
