Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins


If you have over-ripe bananas, there is only one thing to do! And that’s mashing them up to make a banana bread or in this case muffins! So decided to put an all so familiar pairing together which is bananas and Nutella, found a super easy recipe and adapted it slighlty to what I had at home to create these deliciously easy Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins.


  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed (use more if you want an intense banana flavour)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 30ml oil
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans/ choc chips (optional)
  • Nutella


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line the muffin pan with liners.
  2. You will need two bowls. In one bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Set aside and move onto the next bowl.
  3. In the new bowl, whisk together banana, white and brown sugar. Beat in egg, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture, until there are no lumps. (Optional – Fold in pecans/ choc chips)
  4. Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Top each muffin with about 1 teaspoon of Nutella and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter.
  5. Bake muffins for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve warm or allow to cool and store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

This batch makes about 8 muffins so double up if you want more:)
