Nutella Banana Muffins
Time to jump on the Nutella bandwagon! I haven't shared a Nutella recipe yet, but that doesn't mean I don't love it as much as everyone else. I haven't really used it in many recipes because I'm mostly a fan of sticking my right finger in the jar. But these Nutella Banana Muffins are definitely worthy of the extra effort.
To make your Nutella Banana Muffins, preheat your oven to 350°, grease your muffin tin, and add cupcake liners. These come together really quickly, so break out your big mixing bowl. Add butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla, then whisk it all together. Add your dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, and salt, and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix. Whenever you make muffins or other quick breads (like pancakes, biscuits, or even pie crust) it's important to mix as little as possible so that you can get the fluffiest muffin possible. Over-mixing will make them hard and chewy.
When your dry ingredients are mixed in, gently fold in the mashed bananas. You can also add ½ cup chopped nuts to the batter for a crunchy kick. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin. Soften the Nutella a bit so it's easier to work with by popping it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Then scoop 1 tablespoon Nutella into each muffin cup. Swirl with a toothpick to make the marbling effect. Then bake for about 30 minutes (I usually start checking around 20 minutes, just to be safe!)
Enjoy these muffins for breakfast. I love them warm with melted butter!
