  • 1/2 cup macadamia oil
  • 2 eggs lightly whisked
  • 1/3 cup plain yoghurt

  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Line a 12-hole 1/3 cup capacity muffin pan with paper cases.
  • Sift flours, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl. Stir in macadamias, sugar and desiccated coconut. Make a well in the centre.
