Nutella Banana Bread Muffins
A bunch of really ripe bananas led me to create this easy muffin recipe that tastes just like banana bread with a creamy chocolate surprise in the center. A favorite breakfast, after school snack or pre-work out , these moist, healthy muffins will have you leaving bananas laying around to ripen extra long on a regular basis.

    • 1teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2teaspoon sea salt
    • 2teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2cup unrefined sugar (like erythitol) or brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/4cup honey
    • 3tablespoon coconut or grape seed oil
    • 1teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 4 very ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1/2cup Nutella or chocolate hazelnut butter
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin tins with liners or lightly greased them.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and following 5 ingredients (through sugar).
    3. In another medium-sized bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Whisk in the honey and following 3 ingredients (through mashed bananas).
    4. Fold in the wet ingredients to the dry mix, but just until combined.
    5. Spoon about ยผ cup of the batter into each liner. Drop about 1 tablespoon of Nutella in the center of the batter and then fill the liners with the remaining batter. Add another ยฝ teaspoon of Nutella to the top and swirl around with toothpick or sharp pointed knife. If the Nutella is too thick, you can place some in a bowl and microwave it for a few seconds until itโ€™s a little melted.
    6. Bake for about 18 โ€“ 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
    Recipe Notes

    If you do not have Nutella you could substitute a creamy peanut butter for the chocolate hazelnut spread.
