nutella-swirl banana muffin


What do you do with a bunch of ripe bananas sitting in the fruit bowl, – you know those ones that are a bit black that the kids won’t touch – Make Banana Muffins of course.

Fair warning though, this is NO ordinary Banana muffin.  As well as being sweet and fruity with all the goodness of 3 mashed bananas, these Nutella-Swirl Banana Muffins have a teaspoon of nutella swirled through the top and a handful of chocolate chips thrown in for good measure.

These Muffins are amazing, light and moist and the combination of banana and Nutella is out of this world.

They couldn’t be more easier to put together – dry ingredient into the wet ones, a quick stir with a wooden spoon and that;’s the batter done.  Just pour the batter into the muffin liners and swirl a tsp of Nutella through the top.  Bake for 20 mins and hey presto you have the most delicious banana muffins you have ever tasted.

I got 9 big muffins of this batter and soon as they were just cooled they were swiped off the plate by four hungry teens, who said they were ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS.

  • Add the flour mix into the wet mix and fold gently and whisk until it is smooth.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Pour the mixture into the muffins liners 2/3rd's full in each. (it is a thick batter, so I used an ice-cream scoop)

  • Put a teaspoon of Nutella on each muffin and use a small tooth pick to make a swirl on top of each muffin.
  • Bake for about 20 mins

      These are a great hit with my kids, made two batches already this week for college/work lunches..I had to buy extra bananas specially lol

  • Marisa Franca @ All Our Way August 22, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    What a fantastic idea. In all my years of baking of made plenty of banana muffins but I haven’t added Nutella. We certainly enjoy that spread and it would be a great addition.

    • Karyn August 23, 2017 at 9:37 am

      Definitely try it Marisa..It-gives the banana muffin a delicious lift and only uses a teaspoon swirled at the top x

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh August 22, 2017 at 4:26 pm

    Funny thing, I didn’t even know Nutella existed until about two years ago. It seemed to be everywhere, people were making things with it, and stuffing their faces. I finally got to taste it, and omg it is the best! These muffins, I’m sure are amazing!

    • Karyn August 23, 2017 at 9:35 am

      Lol Joanna..It is addictive but a little goes a long wayx

  • Anne pugh August 22, 2017 at 7:24 pm

  • Noel Lizotte August 23, 2017 at 12:32 am

    LOL at four hungry teens in the house. I remember those days … it’s a great way to manage your waistline … because who gets to eat anything when the teens inhale everything! This recipe looks amazing, I’m sure they weren’t kidding when they said the muffins were delicious.

    • Karyn August 23, 2017 at 9:34 am

      Thanks Noel..It’s permanently what’s to eat in my house 😉
