Banana-Nutella Muffins

There is no contesting it – bananas and nutella are an amazing combination. Per usual, A-Tooch had a rotting over-ripe banana in her kitchen and quickly put it to good use.

I halved a combination of a few recipes for banana muffins and banana chocolate chip bread. Voila!

Banana-Nutella Muffins
(Makes 6)

1 over-ripe banana
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 egg
2 tbsp softened butter
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp Nutella
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350ยบ and line a muffin tin with paper cups. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy (about 1-2 minutes). Add the banana, then the egg and blend thoroughly. Slowly beat in the flour mixture until incorporated.

Distribute the batter evenly among the muffin tins. Carefully drop 1/2 tbsp. of nutella on top of each muffin. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick entered in center comes out clean.

Despite how delicious nutella is, it unfortunately doesn’t have the best melting and baking properties. It will solidify a bit in the center of your muffin and won’t be as gooey as other fillings. However, it’s still a delicious surprise.
