Banana Nutella muffins

My husband has never baked on his own before but since he was home for the day, I asked if he’d bake up some banana Nutella muffins I saw on Pinterest. We had exactly 4 perfectly ripened bananas and I’ve been on a bananas and chocolate kick lately. Although he was hesitant to try this on his own, he ended up doing a wonderful job. 

Although he mixed the Nutella directly into the batter rather than creating Nutella swirls, the banana muffins were great! I ate 3 of them on a flight to Dallas last week. You could easily add chips or nuts…he added some peanut butter chips on top. I frosted mine with some extra Nutella.

Banana Nutella Muffins (from Penguins & Cupcakes)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 over-ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp Nutella
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a muffin tin with liners and set aside.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl. Whisk to combine ingredients well. Add the mashed banana, sugar, brown sugar, egg, canola oil and vanilla extract. Do not over mix (batter will be very thick).
  3. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Top each muffin with a teaspoon of Nutella. Using a toothpick or BBQ skewer, swirl the Nutella into the muffin batter. Bake for 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
