Recipe by Juenessa

A moist and flavorful banana-nut muffin with a distinctly tropical twist. If you really want to splurge, omit the applesauce and increase the butter to 1 stick (1/2 cup). This recipe is very versatile. Add chocolate chips instead of the nuts. Use pecans or walnuts in place of the macadamias or add in coconut.
