Morning Glory Muffins

macadamia nut honey muffin recipe

As the weather gets chillier, we are having fun coming up with more seasonal recipes using our honeys! Here is a Big Island Bees take on a bakery staple; morning glory muffins with a Hawaiian twist of raw Macadamia Nut Blossom honey and mac nut butter. These are also dairy- and egg- free, so they’re great for people with food allergies. Enjoy!
