The exclusive ingredients you need for carrot muffins are some smoothly minced carrots, chopped macadamia nuts, eggs, crushed pineapple and apples, cinnamon and baking soda. A dash of saffron and red wine won’t do any harm either.

In 20-30 minutes of baking at 400 degrees in an oven, the carrot muffins are ready to serve… But hey! Don’t forget to decorate the muffin with some confetti, chocolate chips, butterscotch cream and of course, Mint leaves.

3.  Hawaiian Nut Bread:

The Italians have their pizza, and the Indians have their roti… When it comes to Hawaiian recipes, the nut bread is the most influential element competing with the multi-purpose food items. And here too, macadamia nuts take part in a playful role. Baked like the regular flour bread, the nuts are pressed between the folds of the batter, at 350 degrees. Depending on the kind of flavour you seek, add pineapple juice, fresh lime, coconut water, or even mango pulp into the batter to create a real fruity aroma.

4.  Chocolate nut cookies:

After a spicy ordeal with the Chilli Samoan crabs and peppered shrimp BBQs, it is time to relish on something sweet and crunchy. Chocolate nut cookies are perfect items of satisfaction when served with white wine.

Brown sugar and caramelised sugar is used along with eggs and vinegar to create a lusty combination of nutrition and dramatic flavours. Churned from the valleys of aroma, sprinkling a few drops of rose water and cinnamon powder does wonders to what would otherwise seem like a regular oats grain cookie.
