Banana Pineapple Muffins with Macadamia Nuts #MuffinMonday

I was cleaning out my freezer the other day.  I had about 10 overripe bananas in there and also half of a bag of Macadamia Nuts.  I thought these would make a great muffin and I was right.  I have been patting myself on the back ever since.

It's time for Muffin Monday..................

Stacy of Food Lust People Love invites us to join her on the last Monday of each month in sharing a Muffin Recipe.  Muffins are a perfect food in my opinion.  They can be sweet or savory.  They can be breakfast, a side dish, a snack, or dessert.  Heck, these Curried Chicken Muffins or Ham Broccoli and Cheese Muffins can even be lunch.

I'm always anxious for more muffin recipes.  Let's take a look at what everyone baked up today......

Banana Pineapple Muffins with Macadamia Nuts

I can continue to sing praises of Muffins all day long.  They are quick and easy to make.  They are portable.  Plus they are a great way to use up the odds and ends you have in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.
