Mini Banana Muffins swirled with a generous dollop of Nutella, these are the best breakfast/snack you will have all week! Nutella Banana Muffins are the perfect addition to your brunch table!
We're finally getting some weather here in Orange County! It's such a rare occurrence. But the rain has really shown up today. What a treat to be off on a Sunday and enjoy the rain, enjoy being forced to not do much. We've received flash flood warnings so I did a quick trip to Marshall's then back home.
A few years ago a new Marshall's opened up near me, about 7 minutes from my house. Let me tell you my family must be there best customers, we are always there. Such great finds. It's in the same shopping center as the bank so whenever I need to go to the bank chances are I will be stopping at Marshall's. Whether its new shoes, a birthday card, a new baking pan, a new pillow, Marshall's has it all. Oh, and not to mention the food aisles, chocolate, and cookies. Oh, my! Not to mention it's a great place to run into friends LOL.
Anyways enough about my Marshall's addiction. On to the next addiction Nutella. I was never really one on the Nutella bandwagon until recently.
As Lydia, my sister, says I ruin everything with Nutella now. Except these she said. And the pumpkin Nutella muffins I make.
Apparently, muffins are allowed to have Nutella where a Cheesecake is not. She is mental, Nutella Cheesecake is where it's at.
But these muffins, oh they went quickly. But I did have a fabulous idea, to throw a bunch of these Nutella banana muffins in a Ziploc bag and freeze them. So, now I can warm one up at a time whenever I desire, like today. But it's been about 4 so far today...

How do you make banana Nutella muffins?
Of course, you need to preheat your oven, it's important that your oven has enough time to properly heat up. Next get your muffin tin ready, since these are mini I like to use a large 24 cup mini muffin pan. Sure a 12 cup pan works but with a 24 cup that means I have less time the oven is on, and in So Cal, it's always hot.
I start of this recipe with brown butter. If you want to know about brown butter check out my post on brown butter.
Once you have browned your butter add your sugars and mix until combined. Then add two eggs and vanilla extract, whisking until combined.
In a separate bowl whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour. Then slowly fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Then add mashed bananas and sour cream. I love cooking with sour cream. Makes this muffin so moist and delicious.
Fill the mini muffin tins 3/4 full then spoon about a 1/2 teaspoon- 1 teaspoon of Nutella on top of each muffin, using a toothpick gently swirl the Nutella into the batter. I like to keep nice thick chunks of Nutella so I don't swirl too much.
Then bake the muffins for 12- 16 minutes, until the muffins bounce back when you touch the top or a toothpick inserted comes out with no wet crumbs. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
Can I freeze banana Nutella muffins?
Freeze for up to three months and then microwave for 30 seconds when you want one!
