In a large bowl, mix together mashed banana, pumpkin, egg, vanilla, maple syrup, oil and almond milk. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Evenly divide batter between muffin cups, filling about 2/3 of the way full.
Next add coconut sugar, flour, coconut oil and macadamia nuts to a small bowl. Mix together until it resembles wet sand. Evenly distribute topping over each muffin.
To make vegan: this recipe is dairy free and can easily be made vegan by using a flax egg, which is 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water.
To make gluten free: I haven't tested this recipe as gluten free yet but I'd suggest trying a 1:1 gluten free flour or chickpea flour. You may need to add a splash or two more milk to the batter.
To freeze: wrap muffins individually in freezer-safe bags or store them in a large freezer bag. When you’re ready to enjoy them, reheat for 30-45 seconds in the microwave or simply thaw them at room temperature.
