Banana Macadamia Nut Muffins


Whenever I see a new banana recipe, I seem to always bookmark it. It never fails that I have brown bananas in my fruit bowl or bananas that have been transferred to the freezer.

Another one of my favorite things is a crumb topping. Add that to a muffin and I am in heaven. These muffins are fantastic! A great banana muffin with a delicious macadamia crumb topping.

Enjoy!

Me, too!

These look and sound perfect. I'll be whipping up a batch asap as I have five overly ripe bananas sitting on my counter.

Yummy! What a delicious combination. I always seem to have bananas that need to be eaten (especially during the summer when they ripen overnight!)

I love that topping! I just found a muffin top pan at goodwill, I wonder if these would work out well in there.
