These Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins are easy to make and your kids will gobble them up so quickly! They’re packed with bananas and each one has a teaspoon of nutella in it!
These Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins are everything! We love muffins in this family and we love nutella, so these are perfect. They look fancy but they’re so easy to make and great for a special treat.
Muffins don’t last very long in this house. We eat them for breakfast, snacks and dessert! I have a lot of muffin recipes on this site, but these Nutella swirl muffins might just be my new favorite. Bananas, hazelnuts and chocolate go together so well and I think you will agree 🙂
Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins
I make banana muffins a lot but happened to have a jar of nutella in the refrigerator today and decided to add a spoonful to the top of each banana muffin and it was amazing! All you do is make your muffin batter and scoop it into the muffin tin like you normally would. Then, you take a teaspoon of nutella and place it in the middle of each muffin and then use a toothpick or knife to gently swirl it in. They bake up to be so pretty and you get a little bit of Nutella in each bite!
Healthy Banana Muffin Recipe
For my banana muffins I used my favorite Healthy Banana Bread Recipe that I created last year. I call it healthy because it’s lower in sugar than a regular banana bread recipe and can be made with whole wheat flour if you wish.
To Make Gluten Free
If you want to make this recipe gluten free, you can easily just sub a 1:1 gluten free baking flour.
To Make Vegan
To make the banana muffin recipe vegan, just sub a flax egg for the eggs. Nutella is not vegan but here is a vegan nutella recipe you can make and use!
These nutella swirl banana muffins definitely aren’t sugar free, so they may not be the best option for breakfast, although my kids demanded them for breakfast this morning haha, but they’re so great for a special afternoon treat or even dessert. The muffin itself isn’t super sweet so the nutella adds a nice sweetness. I do also have a banana muffin recipe that doesn’t have any added sugar that you could also use if you like!
