Banana Macadamia Nut Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Marie

These are really very special muffins - super moist and full of flavor. You can substitute your preference and use different nuts instead of the macadamias. Original recipe is from Epicurious, but I tweeked it a bit.

Delicious muffins and the aroma while they are cooking is worth 5 stars too. Now I have a go-to recipe when I have bananas on hand that need to be used up. Almost makes me not want to eat my bananas so I will have an excuse to make these wonderfully moist and crunchy muffins. Thanks for posting this recipe.
