The muffins with chocolate also taste really delicious if you leave out the nuts completely, but then you should take a little more chocolate. White chocolate gives the muffins a little more sweetness, but also tastes very good and best then with macadamia nuts.
Try our muffins with chocolate yourself and tell us how they tasted to you. We like them best with a little powdered sugar dusted and sometimes with melted chocolate where then a complete nut as in the chocolate nut brownies or brittle is put on top. Have fun trying them out!
