Hello! Today we are taking a short break from our regular scheduled programming of vegetarian food from around-the-world, so I can share this wonderful recipe for Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins. I’ve been making lists upon lists of globally inspired dishes I want to re-create and make over the next few months to share – but after I saw this recipe for Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins, I knew they had to be the next thing on my cooking/baking bucket list!
After a few days of not feeling well, I finally felt up to spending some time in the kitchen this morning. I decided to give these muffins a try as a treat for Jesse. My mom had so kindly sent some homemade banana bread home with us last Sunday….and I ate the last piece mid-week. For a while there, I did not think Jesse would ever forgive me! *haha* So, I made these muffins to make amends :) I mean, you cannot stay mad at a girl offering you freshly baked muffins! *hah* Thankfully Jesse was willing to share some of these muffins with me. The muffins themselves taste like deliciously moist banana bread, but with a decadent swirl of Nutella on top. Really….what’s not to love!? I loved how easy these muffins were to whip up. And they were the perfect excuse to use up some bananas going brown on the counter. It’s somewhat of a blessing that the recipe only made 12, because I could see eating a whole half dozen in one sitting! Alas…I’ve learned my lesson though. I’ll leave the last muffin for Jesse :)
I’ll be back in a few days with a delicious pot pie recipe inspired by my mom. Happy weekend everyone! :)
Note: I poured a little extra batter into each muffin cup and baked them 19 minutes. This yielded 12 medium-large muffins.
