I have been making Banana Muffins for years. Many years ago, on a trip to Italy with my family, my sister introduced me to Nutella. I have been a fan ever since. One day while making my Banana Muffins I thought, “why don’t I add Nutella to my muffins?”. I have been swirling Nutella in my Banana Muffins ever since, because it is such a delicious combination of flavors.
Here is my recipe for melt in your mouth delicious, BANANA NUTELLA SWIRL MUFFINS.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup nutella, divided
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease the bottoms only of the muffin tin.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a medium stir together mashed bananas, sugar, egg and butter; mix well. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients, stir together until just moistened (do not overmix).
Fill bottom of prepared muffin cups with 2 Tbsp. of batter, then top with 1/2 tsp. Nutella, swirl using a toothpick. Top with 2 more Tbsp. batter and 1/2 tsp. Nutella, then swirl using a toothpick.
Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean, or the muffin interior reaches 210 degrees F. Remove from the oven and immediately turn the muffins up on the sides so that the steam can escape from the muffin tin. Cool in muffin tin 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
