banana nutella muffins

Banana muffins are perfect without any filling, but with Nutella they get much better. They are not only hiding Nutella inside, but also have it on top and the sides. These delicious muffins are a great snack for every time of the day, the whole family loves them and always wants more.

You should use overripe bananas for these muffins, those that have many black spots. These bananas are much sweeter and easier to work with. You can easily find them in a grocery store and then keep on the counter for two days until they become round. You can adjust the taste of these muffins by adding more or less bananas and Nutella. I like sweet things, so my muffins are quite sweet.

The last tip that I can give you is to not to mix the dough too much because you can overmix the butter. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully or you can give your dough a rubber texture.

To make sure the muffins are chewy and fluffy, you should quickly and flour and gently mix everything for a couple of minutes. First you mix dry ingredients, then add wet components until you can’t see the flour anymore. I always do this by hand so that I can control the texture of dough. With stand mixer, it’s easy to overmix everything.

Quick and easy banana nutella muffins

These muffins have gooey Nutella and chewy dough, which makes them perfect for a snack. I love meal prep them the night before and then eat them for breakfast and lunch. They require little time and effort to make and results are always delicious. They are teh tastiest right when you make them, but you can make muffins fresh again by putting them in a microwave for 30 seconds.
