Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins

We always have bananas on hand. Always. I don’t think we ever come home from the grocery store without bananas. And we always have Nutella, because well, Nutella! I haven’t baked anything the last couple of weeks, so we’ve been out of things to munch on. So why not combine some of our old bananas and some of that Nutella to make muffins?

These came out great. I didn’t do such a great job swirling the Nutella, but that worked out to my delight. They had like a big clump of Nutella in the middle. It’s like a gooey chocolatey surprise.

Adapted from


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease muffin pan or line with paper liners.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined. Set aside.

  4. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full (about 1/3 of a cup of batter). Top each muffin with about 1 teaspoon of Nutella and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter.

  5. Bake muffins for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  6. Serve warm or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
