This “simple” muffin recipe was not really that simple at all! It took me 3 days and 5 batches to come up with this version which is by far the best one. I was trying to re-create a basic quick bread type base with the intention of being able to easily add other ingredients such as cocoa powder, zucchini, pumpkin, carrots, blueberries, ect.. without having to guess at recalculating too much. I also wanted a basic recipe that was good enough to stand on it’s own for those whose kids are not into all the add-ins.
The other great thing about this recipe is by changing out the ground macadamia nuts for ground cashews, you instantly lower that ratio from 4:1 to 2.43:1, providing the base for lower ratio needs. I used all butter in mine because I thought the flavor of butter would be the most appealing. These can be described as “buttery” but both my husband and myself thought these were very tasty, and Charlotte has asked for them at every meal since I made them.
Lastly, I calculated this with the full intention of baking it in batches. This is why I am giving the large measurements. Charlottes calorie needs are 285 per meal, so I divided the recipe into 10 servings (281.9 calories each) to meet her needs. If you need less calories, just increase the number of servings, for more calories, decrease the number of servings! You do this by taking the total number of calories for the recipe and dividing by the number of servings, here is an example: total # of calories for the entire recipe (2819)/number of servings (12)=234.9 calories each. You will need at least a 1000g capacity scale to make this large batch!
