These Nutella Stuffed Banana Muffins are so fluffy and have a gooey surprise inside! Every Nutella lover will go crazy for these easy breakfast treats.
These tasty banana muffins are inspired by one of my favorite easy afternoon snacks! I love banana slices topped with Nutella. In the summer months I always put the banana slices in the freezer for a few hours and then top them with Nutella, it tastes like a decadent ice cream treat. So yummy!
Banana and Nutella go so well together! These muffins are adapted from one of my most popular recipes. Everyone loves these easy Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel, they are so easy and quick to make. But this Nutella Stuffed Banana Muffins recipe makes these normal banana muffins even more delicious!
These muffins are not only stuffed with Nutella but they are also topped with more Nutella! They’re every Nutella lovers dream with their gooey Nutella core. And they are so moist because of all the bananas in the batter.
Overripe bananas work best for this recipe. The more black spots the better! They are easier to mash and are sweeter. I always have overripe bananas at home – either in the freezer or on the counter because I always forget to eat them while they are perfect for my taste and then they get black spots. But these ones are perfect for making cakes like this easy Banana Cake or muffins like my Double Chocolate Banana Muffins. If your bananas aren’t ripe you can bake them in a 300°F oven for 30-40 minutes to make them softer and sweeter.
Another tip for making the most delicious nutella stuffed banana muffins is to not overmix the batter. This is important for every muffin recipe! You don’t want dense muffins with a rubber texture. To ensure that your muffins are fluffy and light it’s important to only handle the batter as short as possible after you added the flour. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until just barely combined and no more flour is visible. Better to this by hand with a rubber spatula if you’re not an experienced baker because it’s so easy to overmix with a stand mixer.
I hope you enjoy these muffins as much as my family!
