There’s just something to be said for homemade banana bread Nutella muffins straight out of the oven on a cold November day.

The cold is perfect for comfort-food recipes like Healthy Mac and Cheese, homemade soup or chili, banana muffins with melty chocolate hazelnut filling… these things just wouldn’t be the same in Hawaii!

(Then again, Hawaii has coconut… and pineapple… and white sandy beaches… and no snow, like, ever. Okay, so maybe Hawaii wins.)

I’m not sure why it is, but I’ve been appreciating the cold more than usual this year. And it’s given me new baking inspiration; I find myself waking up every day with new ideas I’m excited to try. Some turn out really well. (Hi, apple sour cream coffee cake!) Others, not so well. (I’ll spare you the recipe for my pumpkin cheesecake muffins that exploded in the oven.)

These banana Nutella muffins are definitely on the side of baking successes. I could eat a hundred of these soft and homemade Nutella muffins and still crave more!

I ❤️ Banana Bread Nutella Muffins
4.83/512

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed banana (240g)
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 2 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp vegetable or melted coconut oil (30g)
  • 1 cup spelt, white, or Bob’s gf flour (130g)
  • only if using gf flour, 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar of choice or xylitol (65g)
  • 10-20 tsp Healthy Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread of choice

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 F, and line a muffin tin with 10 liners. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 5 ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except nutella, and stir well. Pour wet into dry, and stir until just evenly mixed. Working quickly, fill each liner about a third of the way up with batter, then drop a tsp or two of nutella into the center of each muffin. Portion the remaining batter evenly among the muffin liners. Bake on the center rack 19-20 minutes or until muffins have domed and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let sit 10 minutes before removing muffins from the tin. (If you want to peel off the liners without any sticking, it’s best to let the muffins sit a few hours.) Refrigerate or freeze leftovers for optimal freshness.

*Another option is to bake the banana muffins without filling; then you can either add the filling with a piping back inserted into the bottom of each muffin or you can cut a hole in the tops, fill the muffins, and then replace the tops.

    Hi, Katie.
    I love th new website layout, however, the pop up ads on my iPad are unbearable.
    First, when I get to the home screen, a huge, long ad pops up along the bottom, then when I click on the recipe, a small pop up ad (rectangular) follows me as I scroll down. I try to hit the “x” on these to make them go away but it doesn’t work. Thanks!

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Hi! How does it look now? Hopefully fixed?

      My ad rep said she took the ad down… I am very very very sorry about the inconvenience, and please make sure to let me know if you see something like this again. Apparently the ad was displaying incorrectly, and it’s thanks to people like you that we’re able to fix it! Otherwise I never would have known!

    Hi Katie I am so excited to try these! Nutella and bananas are the most delicious combo!
    I love that you have the nutritional information for all your recipes. Just curious, how do you calculate the nutrition facts? Do you use a certain website?

    These look TO DIE FOR!!! I have had a Nutella addiction since I was little, away at ‘brownie’ camp AND one of the leaders put a tub of chocolate spread on our breakfast table… it was literally THE only thing I ate for the next week!!! I will absolutely be trying these out (or getting my BF to 😉 he loves a good bake, I might not get the Nutella to last past the spoon!!)

    I’m very interested in your healthy nutella recipe. You mentioned the sugar/agave combination in the nutritional information. I can’t find the sugar/agave dosage in the recipe. Where can I find that info?

    Hi Katie, I’m not sure if I’m only encountering this issue because I’m using an iPad, but ever since you upgraded the site, there is a huge add bar along the bottom of the screen that can’t be closed. That combined with the top banner means that only about a third of the screen shows the blogpost. It’s made the site rather user unfriendly 🙁 I can only see the blog posts well through my email and the find it really challenging if I’m looking up an older recipe. I can screen shot it and send you the pic if you need it. Thanks!!! Leslie

    Oooooh my goodness! I just found your blog and am loving it! I am a huuuuge chocolate lover so I can’t wait to get started going through your recipes … these muffins will definitely be first on my list! Thanks for sharing!

    Super yummy BUT I used a standard tin. They made nine little ones. They are gooey on the bottom. Like they didn’t cook throughout. AGAIN YUMMY!!!

    I can’t believe how easy it was to make at how delicious they are! I used Trader Joe’s Cookie and Cocoa Swirl instead, and it’s just as heavenly!

    My housemate, parents, and work friends voted that this was hands down one of the best recipes I’ve ever cooked. I didn’t make then with the Nutella, though I did stir through 1/2 a cup of pecans. Magical! Thank you.

    Thanks for a great recipe! So quick and easy and I love how small the recipe is 🙂 I used whole wheat stone ground flour and some unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil. I also threw in a tbsp of flax and meal w chia seeds. They still turned out moist and delicious! They’re kind of serious trouble!!

        I’ve never attempted to make stuffed mini muffins, I was worried they’d be too small to stuff. But I JUST did it, and other than the fact that I didn’t use enough bananas and therefore ran out of batter leaving 4 of the mini muffins naked on top (or with nutella frosting instead of nutella stuffing, how about that?)… SUCCESS 😀 Now if only I could stop eating them.

  11. Al says

    I came across this recipe the other day and I was stoked to try it. I didn’t have enough banana so I made up for the rest with pumpkin. I added chia seeds, ground flax, and cinnamon for some extra numnums and I switched out the oil for applesauce. They came out wonderfully! Thank you for the recipe.
