Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins

Standard

Nutella…like I needed to read any further, I was in love with this recipe http://www.thenovicechefblog.com/2013/01/nutella-banana-swirl-muffins/

I always have bananas in the freezer because no matter how much me and my lil one love bananas we can never get through a bunch before they turn brown. Recipes like this are ones that I take those bananas out and Bake away! This recipe was simple and my lil one even helped, we love recipes where she can participate.

what you will need:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Nutella

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes…mine tooka few minutes longer than this, I may have filled them a bit fuller than I should have. But just use a toothpick and when it comes out clean they are done…note that the Nutella will be on the toothpick all melted, just make sure the batter part is done.
