These banana nutella muffins get an upgrade with a swirl of chocolate hazelnut butter in each muffin! They’re vegan friendly, naturally sweetened, and include a gluten-free option as well!
There are those flavor combos that just work. Chocolate + peanut butter, apples + cinnamon, and salt + caramel are just a few. And if they aren’t already, bananas and nutella definitely need to be added to the list! Ever since I got a banana and nutella crepe at a little stand in one of the charming towns off the Amalfi coast, I’ve been hooked!
These banana muffins have melty nutella swirled into the batter of each muffin cup before baking. It’s such a scrumptious addition!
Oddly enough, I found the more I swirled in the nutella, the flatter the muffins baked up. They were still delicious, just not as tall! Drizzling about a teaspoon of nutella onto each muffin and then gently swirling with a toothpick just a few times, was good enough. Don’t worry, big pockets of delicious nutella on top are A-OK! That’s exactly what you want.
These muffins are simple to make and are free of eggs, dairy, and refined sugar, with a gluten free option also included! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
