Banana Nutella Muffins

Banana muffins sound a million times more delicious when you swirl a dollop of Nutella into them. Don’t you think? In fact adding Nutella to anything makes it more delicious. Ok, well maybe not everything, but definitely baked goodies. 😀 These moist muffins have a deep banana flavor, crunchy hazelnuts, and a hefty dose of hazelnut spread making them irresistible. Serve warm with extra Nutella smeared on them instead of butter, trust me on this one! 😉

  1. These look so good, nutella makes everything amazing!

  2. Working the Nutella into the muffins is good — now, if you just work the banana out, you’ll have a muffin I might like.

    Adding nutella to things is like adding peanut butter, it’s always a good idea!

    always on the hunt for something yummy to make with ripe bananas…and being a nutella lover…this is my new fave! I didn’t have any hazelnuts, and had to substitute sour cream for the yogurt, but these are absolutely delish!

  15. Ces says:

    Thank you for this! I have a batch in the oven now.

    Reblogged this on step into my world and commented:
    i wanted to start baking other cupcakes than my usual red velvet with cream cheese frosting. after getting a jar of nutella at a white elephant this past Christmas, i decided it’d be my key ingredient. i came across this blog as a i googled ‘nutella cupcakes’. i made two batches of this and it was a hit. it really isn’t that unhealthy and i would have to say it’s healthier than the red velvet. sweet pea’s kithchen is an interesting blog and i think i’ll be stealing some more recipes from here as i am trying to get into some real cooking.

    up next, vegetable lasagna…

    If you don’t have yogurt, will it still be ok to make?

    • Christina says:

      You can use 1 cup sour cream, or 1 cup buttermilk, or 1 cup heavy whipping cream plus 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice instead of the yogurt. If you give it a try I would love to hear how it turns out for you! 🙂

    Made these this morning. Came out perfect and so tasty. 1 and 3 year old loved them – so did mom and dad! Thanks.

  19. terri says:

    I just made the muffins and they turned out so nice they looked beautiful and tasted even better. My daughter who loves Nutella is going to be so happy when she gets home from school and has such a yummy treat waiting for her. Thanks for the recipe!

  20. BK says:

    I substituted heavy whipping cream and lemon juice as suggested for the yogurt. Perfecto! These are delicious!!!!

  21. Rachel says:

    Just made these Muffins – Absolutely YUMMO!!!!!! Well worth a try! 🙂

  22. Connie says:

    I just made these and they are really good! My only advice is to microwave the nutella in a glass dish for about 20 seconds before putting it in the batter to swirl. It makes it a whole lot easier. The first muffin I just plopped the nutella in and it just stayed in a big clump and sank to the bottom.

  23. Alicia says:

    I followed this recipe to a T, an it came out FANTASTIC!! very easy, I tend to question recipes I find online, which messes me up lol but I followed this one exactly an I love it!
