Double Nutella Banana Muffins

I’m in Europe! In Bulgaria visiting my in laws in particular. It seems like there’s Nutella products wherever I turn (talk about selective perception!) so I thought it’s appropriate to share the recipe for this batch of Nutella Filled Nutella Banana Muffins that I baked a couple of weeks back (yep I said Nutella twice).

These may just be the best way to use up your ripe bananas friends. The recipe comes together in minutes (especially when using a food processor or blender) and the final product is amazing. Moist, rich with a creamy hidden surprise. They’ll just make you feel like a kid again!

Ingredients:

  • 2 very ripe bananas* (1 cup mashed, about 240 g)
  • 1 large egg (flax egg might work)
  • 2 tbsp yogurt (I use 2% greek yogurt – 28 g)
  • 2 tbsp nutella (37 g)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp whole wheat or any wheat flour (105 g)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (12 g)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling:

  • 1/4 cup nutella (74 g)

Makes 9 muffins. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a silicone muffin pan (I haven’t tried regular muffin pans so if you’re using one or even muffin liners make sure to grease well). In a food processor, hand mixer or by hand blend together mashed banana, egg, yogurt, nutella, vanilla extract until smooth. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Pour in the wet ingredients and fold until combined (do not overmix). Fill 9 muffin cavities 1/3 of the way. Drop a heaping tsp of nutella on each (about 8 g per muffin) and top with the rest of the batter until they’re 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool in the muffin pan a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy! Keep refrigerated or frozen for maximum freshness and let come to room temperature before enjoying.

(*) You can probably sub applesauce for banana but I haven’t tried this.

Let me know if you make these! ❤ Now let me go back to eyeing Nutella products all over Eastern Europe!

  1. Hi! I made these using whole wheat flour and they turned out great! I only had a 6 muffin pan, so I figured that makes my muffins closer to 213 calories as made, but I’m going to eat them in halves, since they’re quite big. Thanks for the recipe!
