There are certain foods/recipes that my family never gets tired of. Muffins ranked pretty high on that list. Especially, muffins with either chocolate chips or banana.

These muffins do not include chocolate chips, but, they do include a creamy chocolate hazelnut spread! So, of course, my family inhaled them.

Recipe Notes

No electric mixer? There’s no need to bring out the big electric mixer for these. As noted above, a few good mixing bowls, a whisk and rubber spatula will do just fine. Just be sure to mix the batter only until it’s mixed. A few lumps are OK!

Can these be frozen? Yes. These can put in a freezer safe container/bag for several weeks. When you are ready to eat one, just heat it up in the microwave or oven for a few minutes to warm it up.

  5. Made these just now with some minor changes and they are yummy! Not to mention that it always smells wonderful when baking something with bananas.

    For those concerned about sugar and fat, my changes were to reduce to just 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 butter. The use of 3 bananas will provide the added sweetness and replace the fat. (And just a little Nutella swirl — probably less than 1/2 teaspoon — goes a long way!)

    Thanks for the recipe; it’s a keeper!

    1. So glad you enjoyed them the substitutions!
