Banana Nutella Muffins


Okay guys, today I have THE BEST banana recipe ever.  Because really, all you have to do is add Nutella!

I grew up on banana bread.  Every time bananas would get too ripe to eat, they were turned into banana bread and it was absolutely delicious.  I loved it so much.  I thought nothing could ever make it better….

Well, I was wrong… after some time, it got a bit boring.  So recently when I had some overly ripe bananas, I knew I needed to make banana bread with a twist, and boy is this twist AMAZING!  

How did I never think of this combination before?!

These are full of flavor, deliciously sweet and the perfect blend of banana goodness.  But to top it all off and make it absolutely and positively divine, ADD NUTELLA!

Oh my goodness, the ooey gooey warm Nutella (yes, warm every time if you pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds) makes it the best banana muffin I have ever had!

It is so good, I learned you could ripen bananas in the oven and am doing that now to make it again! ;)

After salivating over these pictures, go pick up some bananas and make them right now! If you do, let me know in the comments below how they were!
