Those Nutella swirl muffins

They are all over Pinterest these days and those banana and Nutella muffins have become a favorite at home. Chocolate + bananas are always a winning combination and if they come together in a muffin, for me they are the perfect breakfast or snack.

Normally I prepare these muffins when we forget that we have bananas at home and they become over-ripped. So when their skin is full of brown dots but they have not spoiled yet, we know that is time to prepare banana muffins to enjoy with a glass of cold milk or even better: A cup of Café de Olla.

Can banana muffins be frozen?

Making those muffins will not take much time and I assure you that they will not last at home. But in case you will have some leftovers and you want to store them, you can frozen them in zip bags or wrap them individually with cling film.

When you ready to enjoy your banana Nutella muffins just thaw them on the counter. Or you can also defrost them slowly in the refrigerator and warm them up a little bit in the microwave before eating them.

How many bananas are enough?

In the recipe I recommend using only 220 gr of bananas, about two medium pieces, but actually you can add up to 4 bananas, which will result in more moist and sweet muffins and with a more intense banana flavour.

Tips

Use a kitchen scale to measure ingredients. When it comes to baking, nothing beats using the simple method of measuring your ingredients properly.

Mix dry and liquid ingredients separately. This avoid having to over mix the bater by giving time to mix each ingredient on its own.

Due to having the Nutella on top, those muffins won’t rise so much on the top (like classic muffins does). Still, they won’t neither be flat. So, just allow them to rest a bit inside the thins before placing them on the cooling rack, to avoid muffins from deflating.

The Recipe – Step by Step

Heat the oven to 180 ° C /350 F.

In a bowl, sift the flour together with the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
