Recipe of the Week: Peanut Butter Nutella Banana Muffins

I'm back today with a recipe I think you'll love. I found this one on Half Baked Harvest, and since our girls love peanut butter and nutella sandwiches, I knew they'd like these. I adapted it only very slightly this time, but next time, I think I'll try using only whole wheat flour. I'm glad I took a picture of these right away because they didn't last long...we ALL enjoyed eating them for breakfast and snacks.

Peanut Butter Nutella Banana Muffins

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup white flour
1/2 whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
18 heaping teaspoons Nutella

Spray two muffin pans with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together bananas, peanut butter, oil, egg, vanilla and sugars. I used a hand mixer.

Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir or mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin pan. Fill each cup 3/4 of the way. Drop 1 teaspoon of Nutella on top of each muffin and swirl with a knife.

Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a rack to allow them to cool.

  4. Saw these and instantly thought of my daughter. She loves banana muffins and nutella. Thanks for sharing. I am going to have to make these for her. Visiting from Sugar Bee Crafts hop. Would love for you to stop by and visit.

  5. The recipe sounds amazing. Just one question - can the canola oil be replaced with something else? If so, with what exactly? I don't think we have that in my country...
    Thanks a lot!
