Yields1 Serving

For the batter:
 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 1 tsp baking powder
 1 tsp baking soda
 ¼ tsp salt (or no salt if using salted butter)
  cup brown sugar
 3 ripe bananas, mashed
 1 large egg, beaten
 1 tsp vanilla
 ½ cup melted butter
 ½ cup macadamia nuts, chopped
For the streusel topping:
  cup brown sugar
 3 tbsp flour
 3 tbsp cold butter, cubed
 2 tbsp rolled oats
  cup macadamia nuts, finely chopped

1

Preheat oven to 375ºF and grease or line a 12-cup muffin pan. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

2

In a separate mixing bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the brown sugar, mashed bananas, egg, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a wooden spoon until just combined. Be careful to not over-mix. Add the chopped macadamia nuts and gently fold them into the batter.

3

Prepare the streusel topping: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and flour until combined and no lumps remain. Cut in the cubed butter with your fingers or a fork until the mixture forms large crumbs. Stir in the oats and chopped macadamia nuts.

4

Spoon the muffin batter into the muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over all the muffins. Bake in the preheated oven until the top of the muffins are puffed and golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool muffins in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing. Serve warm with butter and/or guava jam.
