I felt like baking today, just because. Each I day I receive an email from Mavis Butterfield from http://www.onehundreddollarsamonth.com She is like the energizer bunny of gardening, cooking, saving money etc.
Today she posted this fabulous recipe with bananas and nutella baked in a oh so yummy muffin. Yep I made them! Banana Nutella Muffins!!!
Here is how they are made –
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil(I used coconut oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Nutella, melted (I used Aldi’s brand)
Preheat oven to 350o.
In a bowl mix the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
In a stand mixer – mix up the bananas and the sugars.
Add in the egg, oil and vanilla, mix well. **I did semi melt the coconut oil and let it cool slightly so as not to cook the egg. :)**
Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated, do not over mix!
Scoop into paper lined muffin tins. Spoon a bit of melted nutella on the top of each muffin batter. Take a toothpick and swirl it in.
Bake 18-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean BUT test an area without the nutella, if possible.
Let cool – maybe 😀 and EAT lots of them!!!
