The smell of these delicious clementine muffins is incredible. The organic and seasonal clementines, typical fruits of the Italian winter, especially in the South of the country, make them perfect for breakfast or for a snack. They are among the most loved citrus fruit by children because they are seedless. The peel is not very sticky to the pulp and can be easily peeled. It has a high content of Vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus and potassium. The chocolate chips are a perfect match with this type of citrus; the cashews enrich the taste, making these muffins very soft, thanks to the natural fats contained in this dried fruit.
