Banana Nutella Muffins

I rarely make muffins these days. When my brother’s wife gave birth to my baby niece last week, I asked on Twitter for some suggestions of what kinds of food to take over to their house. A couple people mentioned taking some muffins and other snacky foods over there since they probably already have quite a few meals in the house.

I jumped on the idea of baking up some muffins. And since I always have frozen over-ripened bananas in the freezer, I grabbed a couple to let them defrost. At the same time, my little sister Linz was on her way to Boston to spend her spring break out here. She loves to bake and has some pretty mad skills in the kitchen. I love it when she comes to visit because we just spend hours in the kitchen cooking and baking.

She mentioned two things when we were at the store grabbing ingredients. One, she had tried risotto at a restaurant and wanted to try her hand at making some. And two she had never had nutella. We instantly added nutella to the cart and these muffins were born. FYI, she made her first risotto the other night (with shrimp, goat cheese, and asparagus) and it was amazing! These muffins have great flavor as the banana and nutella work together in perfect harmony. No one ingredient overpowers the other.

    I made this tonight for a birthday and it was truly *amazing*! We all loved it and all the kids came back wanting seconds. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out incredibly moist and gooey, deliciously sweet, and spiced. I used half Granny Smith apples and half Gala. I also only had a 9″ pan and by the time I filled it up I still had enough batter (and some extra apple slices left) to fill another 9″ pan. I didn’t have any extra caramel topping, but decided to just bake the batter with the few left over apple slices. Next time I will double the amount of the caramel topping and cut up two more apples and make two full pans worth. It takes a little bit of time to make, but is not a difficult recipe to follow and is oh-so worth it! Thanks for sharing this!

    I have been reviewin online more than 4 hours today for windows 7
    starter snpc oa toshiba & Pimento Cheese Burger , yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
