    UmmBinat's Note:

    ZWT7 Pacific Islands, Hawaii. Macadamia nuts are synonymous with Hawaii but indigenous to Australia. The almost perfectly round light coloured nuts grow to approximately 1 inch in size, and they have a rich distinctive taste. Recipe from the Australian Macadamia Society.

      Easy to make and fun to eat. I made 20 muffins, so when I make these again I'll use my extra large pan. I think one apple would have worked fine, cut into very thin wedges. I used Grade B maple syrup. Made for the *Aus NZ Bush Tucker Challenge * on * Zaar World Tour 5* 2009 game for team *Genies of Gourmet*
