Nutella Swirl Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

I may be busy as all get out, but I wasn’t going to miss out on participating in Secret Recipe Club this month. I probably should have taken the month off, but here I am anyway. This month I was assigned to Enriching Your Kid! by Shirley. Her blog is geared towards parents looking for ways to enrich their children by strengthening their immunity and facilitating their growth. But if you are like me and do not have children, the recipes are still great for expanding your knowledge about healthy foods.  I plan to try out her Chocolate-Date Compound Butter in the future, and almost made the Chicken Corn Kebabs, but decided on a muffin recipe instead for today because it involved Nutella!

The original recipes had a dollop of Nutella in the middle of the muffin, but I forgot to only pour half the batter into the muffin pan in order to accomplish that so I just made a swirl on top. They might not have a Nutella-center but they certainly tasted as good as they looked. I loved that the recipe uses olive oil instead of a lot of butter or canola oil, and my taste buds were completely fooled. And with whole wheat flour and bananas in addition to the Nutella, there’s really no way to go wrong with one of these for breakfast, or a snack.

Nutella Swirl Whole Wheat Banana Muffins


NUTELLA SWIRL WHOLE WHEAT BANANA MUFFINS

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

1-1/4 cup white whole wheat flour

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 egg, lightly beaten

3/4 cup milk (I used 1%)

1/3 cup olive oil

1 Tbsp salted butter, melted

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 medium ripe bananas mashed

Approximately 6 Tbsp Nutella

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. In large bowl stir together the egg, milk, oil, butter and vanilla. Add the mashed bananas and mix to combine thoroughly. Add the flour mixture into the banana mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Divide the batter amongst the cavities of the prepared muffin pan (they will be nearly full but don’t worry the batter doesn’t puff much). Add a 1/2 tablespoon dollop of Nutella on top of each and swirl with a toothpick or knife.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and tops are golden.
