Confession: I cannot have jars of Nutella in my house. It’s a problem. I just like it too much! So, when the company sent me a couple jars, I knew I had to use them right away. I have another recipe coming up in a couple weeks, but I had to use this other jar immediately. I decided to try making Nutella and banana bread muffins. I’d seen a similar recipe online and they just looked so delicious. I also made these pumpkin Nutella bars a couple years ago, and they were a major hit at work. There’s just some so perfect mixing breads (like pumpkin and banana) with Nutella. The fruit and chocolate hazelnut just work so well together.
These Nutella and banana bread muffins are super easy to make. Even if you’re not much of a baker, I promise you can make this recipe. There are no complicated steps or equipment needed to make these.
The second batch, I spent more time making sure the Nutella and the batter were well swirled, which created some really beautiful muffins. I decided to share this version with you all because, well, they just looked prettier. They all tasted great, and the ones with the banana slices were definitely a little more banana-y, if that’s your thing.
No matter which version you make, you’ve gotta try these Nutella and banana bread muffins. They are so delicious – I promise your family will love them.

  4. Add a teaspoon of Nutella to the top of each muffin and gently cut Nutella into batter with a knife or toothpick to produce pretty swirls. I also added a small amount of batter on top of the Nutella to make the swirling process easier.
