Recipe: Banana & Nutella Muffins

Like most households, we’ve a constant supply of brown bananas on hand at all times. Regardless of how many I buy, there are always bananas left over at the end of the work week meaning it’s time to get creative. I’m a huge fan of banana bread (as demonstrated by our Banana & Date Bread Recipe) but sometimes I crave even more sweetness. That’s where these banana & Nutella muffins come in.

Nutella and Banana Muffins

I have a small love affair with Nutella, to the point that I don’t trust myself to have it in the house.  It forms part of my work travel kit; nothing beats Nutella spread thickly on a croissant to help kick jet-lag in to touch and prepare you for a day of meetings, but I digress. Because it’s never in the house, I had no idea that my husband had never tried Nutella, ever. Understandably I had no choice but to buy some and put it in cake format for him to try… lucky boy.

Banana & Nutella Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

You will need:

  • 285g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 110g butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 bananas – the browner the better!
  • Nutella


  1. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees celsius and lightly grease a muffin tray
  2. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the butter and sugar until fluffy
  4. Mix in the eggs and bananas until combined but still slightly lumpy – lumpy mix makes great banana bake!
  5. Fold in the dry mixture
  6. Spoon half the mixture into the muffin trays
  7. Place half a teaspoon of Nutella onto the centre of each cake, it should sit on top of the cake mix
  8. Spoon the remainder of the cake batter into the muffin trays, hiding the Nutella
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes minutes until risen and golden brown
