Banana Nutella Muffins are so easy and quick to make from scratch! A fluffy bakery-style Banana Muffin filled with Nutella that makes a great snack or breakfast.
Banana Nutella Muffins are every Nutella lover’s dream with their gooey Nutella core! They’re not only stuffed with Nutella but they also have a Nutella swirl on top. These delicious Nutella stuffed banana muffins are inspired by one of my favorite easy afternoon snacks: Banana slices topped with Nutella.
In the summer months I always put the banana slices in the freezer for a few hours and then top them with Nutella, it tastes like a decadent ice cream treat. So yummy!
Banana and Nutella go so well together! These muffins are adapted from one of my most popular recipes. My easy Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel are a reader favorite. But the addition of Nutella makes these tasty banana muffins even more delicious!
Tips and Tricks for making Banana Nutella Muffins
- Use over-ripened bananas with black spots for this recipe. The really ripe ones are sweeter and easier to mash. If your bananas aren’t ripe yet you can bake them in a 300°F oven for 30-40 minutes to make them softer and sweeter.
- Use muffin liners for this recipe! The muffins will come easier out of the pan and are easier to store. These muffins are super moist so they are more likely to stick to the pan when you don’t use liners.
- Don’t overmix the batter! This is important for every muffin recipe. To ensure that your muffins are light and fluffy mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until just barely combined, and no more dry flour is visible.
- Don’t let the muffins cool down in the muffin tin! The hot muffin tin will continue to bake the muffins and you might end up with drier muffins. Give the muffins a couple minutes to cool off, then remove them and transfer to a cooling rack.
