Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Nutella, warmed

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Batter

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or lightly grease it.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

Step 2: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

  1. Combine: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Step 3: Add Nutella

  1. Warm Nutella: Warm the Nutella slightly in the microwave to make it easier to swirl into the batter. Microwave in 10-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
  2. Swirl Nutella: Gently fold the warmed Nutella into the batter, creating swirls. Do not mix it in completely; you want to see streaks of Nutella throughout the batter.

Step 4: Bake the Muffins

  1. Fill Muffin Tin: Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  2. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  3. Cool: Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 5: Serve

  1. Serve Warm: Serve the Nutella banana muffins warm or at room temperature. Enjoy with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee!

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Banana Ripeness: Use ripe bananas for the best flavor and sweetness.
  • Nutella Swirl: For a more pronounced Nutella swirl, add a small dollop of Nutella on top of each muffin before baking and swirl with a toothpick.
  • Storage: Store the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
