White Chocolate & Cherry Almond Muffins

Ingredients

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
2 eggs
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

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 180C
2
Prepare a muffin tray by lightly greasing, lining with baking paper or with muffin cases.
3
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.
4
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until well incorporated. Gently fold in the white chocolate chunks and orange zest.
5
Pour into the prepared muffin tray. Place a cherry in the centre of each muffin and sprinkle the tops with some cane sugar.
6
Pop into the oven to bake for 25 minutes until golden brown on top.
