A muffin for your Monday
Day 3 of the Countdown to A Love Story brings these Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins.
Nutella is probably my favorite nut butter. I mean, it does count as a nut butter, right?
These muffins have just the right balance of banana in them. I know many people really don’t like the taste of bananas in baked goods, but trust me, if you’re one of those people, you really can’t miss out on these muffins. They’re just that good.
Like I will gladly eat a muffin with a center of Nutella.

Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins.
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup canola or melted coconut oil
- 1 cup white, granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 12 tablespoons Nutella or any chocolate hazelnut spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake tin with liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, egg, oil, sugar, and vanilla. Fold in flour,
baking soda, and salt. Distribute batter evenly among 12 liners, filling each about 3/4 of the way
full. Add 1 tablespoon of Nutella on top of batter in each liner, and run a toothpick through the
Nutella and batter in order to create a swirl effect.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm, and dig in!
