Nutella Swirled Banana Nut Muffins

A lot of my client contacts at work have been asking me me to bring in some sweets, so I needed an easy, crowd pleasing treat. My mind got a little carried away, and imagined these Nutella-swirled banana nut muffins.

I decided to make banana muffins, which are almost healthy, right?

I threw in some hazelnuts to give them some texture, and of course I swirled a giant globs of Nutella into each muffin.

Why? Because Nutella makes everything taste like amazing. Hence the creation of my Nutella overload cake, and my banana nutella cake.

To make them a little prettier, I swirled the nutella throughout the muffins. This makes them taste as good as they look!

Nutella Swirled Banana Nut Muffins:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • 8 oz. jar Nutella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add all ingredients in a large bowl, and combine with a hand mixer at a  low speed.

Fill each lined cupcake tray 2/3 full, and drop 1 heaping tablespoon of Nutella onto the top of each muffin.

Using a butter knife, swirl the Nutella around the top of each muffin.

Bake the muffins for about 15 minutes, until the edges were golden brown.

The size of your muffin tins and how full you fill them will also affect baking time, so baking time may vary.

Keep an eye on them, and remove them as soon as a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.

I chose to make both normal sized muffins, and mini muffins.

The mini muffins only need to be baked for about 10 minutes.
