Banana Nutella muffins take a basic, easy banana muffins recipe up a notch. They’re moist banana muffins with a little hidden treat of Nutella inside! Perfect for a morning treat with a cup of coffee, tucked into a lunchbox, for an easy kid’s snack, or for a sweet treat any time of the day.
Yesterday my family and I visited two old friends and their daughters at their new house. I wanted to bring something homemade and since I am still on a Nutella/peanut butter/chocolate kick, I wanted to make sure I satisfied my daily need for the flavors!
I have a basic banana muffin recipe that I make and I knew that would work with a filling. You just need a little bit of filling in each muffin, so make sure not to use too much. Otherwise, it will leak out and ruin the surprise hiding inside.
Making banana Nutella muffins is so easy!
Mash ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Add oil, sugar, salt and mix just until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla. Fold gently until mixture is all incorporated.
In another bowl combine flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet mixture. Stir just until moist.
Lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with a non-stick spray and add a little bit of batter into each cup. Drop a small amount of Nutella (or filling of your choice) into the center of each cup. Top them with remaining batter to completely cover the filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until tops are light brown.
I made a double batch of banana muffins, filling half with Nutella. A few had peanut butter, and a couple had just mini chocolate chips, as my oldest is allergic to all tree nuts.
