Macadamia Chocolate Chip Berry Muffins
Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Day!
After going a little in depth with whom Dr. King is and why we celebrate him, to my girls; I decided to make us some muffins to start our day off with.
I found this recipe a while back on foodgawker and just knew I had to give it a try.

Recipe adapted from: A Splash ofVanilla
2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup raw caster sugar
½ cup dark chocolate, diced in small pieces
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup coarsely chopped macadamias

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add cupcake liners to a 12 cup muffin pan.
Pour buttermilk into measuring cup. Lightly whisk in egg, vanilla extract, oil and buttermilk until combined.
Sift flour, baking powder and sugar into bowl – whisk until combined. Add chocolate and berries and combine with wooden spoon until coated with flour (this will stop them sinking to the bottom during baking).
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix with wooden spoon – only until just combined. Don’t over beat.
Scoop the batter into muffin liners. Sprinkle nuts on top of muffins.
Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and tops spring back when pressed. Leave in tins for 5 minutes or so then place onto baking rack to cool.
