Guys, get ready for an amazing little trick to take your banana bread to a whole new level. I saw something like this on pinterest and thought I’d give it a try. I don’t think I will ever make normal banana bread again.
Here’s what you do:
Make your regular batter for banana bread. I use the tried and true betty crocker recipe.
Once you have your batter, separated into muffin tins (you could probably line with cupcake liners, I just spray with Pam and they come out fine).
Here’s where the magic happens:
Add a dollop of nutella to each muffin (I add a rounded teaspoon).
Using a skewer (or a toothpick) swirl the nutella into the batter:
A tip: It should be a pretty even swirl, if the nutella isn’t mixed in, it melts and falls off as the muffins rise, leaving a smelly, burning mess in the bottom of your oven (yes, I know this from experience).
Because the banana bread is separated, it doesn’t take as long to bake, 25-35 minutes is all they need. The result? These amazing, oh so tasty, nutella banana bread muffins:
Seriously, give it a try, you’ll love it!
Do you know any other easy, life changing (or otherwise delicious) tricks like this one? Do tell!

You had me at Nutella. I love that stuff (and any excuse to put it in a recipe)! Can’t wait to try this!!!
Haha, me too, Nicole! Actually, we bought Nutella at Costco and it’s probably better to just get a grocery-store sized one from now on (at least if I want my clothes to keep fitting- haha!). 🙂

Trying this now, was just getting ready to make banana bread today!
Stephanie- love that! 🙂
These are in the oven as we speak! Thank you.
Love this! 🙂 Are you in love like we are? 🙂

This sounds amazing! I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for a great idea! 🙂
Julia- if you have overripe bananas, you might want to make it today (seriously- so YUMMY!). 🙂 Thanks for the sweet comment!

Oh happiness!! Not one but two jars of Nutella are in my cupboard at this instant, a new tradition from dad to try to ease the little man into the new place, Nutella on toast for breakfast. But now I know what will be the new perfect breakfast food. I mean, it’s healthy, what with all of the bananas and everything… 🙂
I’m so gonna do this! My 6yr old probably has nutella once a day (though our version is the Crumpy brand). You think this can work w peanut butter, too? Mmmmm!!! Thanks for sharing.

Sorry, i though my first comment didn’t go through. I didn’t see that the Betty Crocker recipe was a link and not a mix! Even better… Yay!
Annie, I love it that your daughter loves Nutella too! If you try it with PB, will you let me know how it turns out?
