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.

This recipe is truly a WINNER!!! The muffins are really moist and delicious. The only change that I made was I used Sour Cream instead of milk. They are so light, they just melt in your mouth. I also added a cup of chocolate chips to them. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!!!!

LOVE these muffins - they are delicious! I did add some mini chocolate chips as we love the flavor of chocolate with banana. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly - yummy! The macadamia nuts add such a yummy flavor, I never would have thought to use them in muffins!
