Servings 12 servings


  • 3 super ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup Nutella spread


  • In a bowl mash up the bananas with a fork or potato masher. You can leave some clumps of bananas or mash it up all the way.
  • Add in the sugar, vanilla extract and the egg and whisk very well. You will then add in the yogurt and the melted butter. Give it another good whisk to incorporate the ingredients well.
  • In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients together; that being the flower, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and a pinch of salt. Give it a stir and pour over the wet ingredient. Fold everything together to obtain nice and smooth batter mixture.
  • Line some cupcake/muffin liners in a muffin pan. Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop in one scoop of the batter into each muffin cup. You can then add in a teaspoon of Nutella spread into each muffin cup and swirl around with a wooden skewer or toothpick.
  • Place and bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes until the muffins are gold and brown on the top. Remove and let it cool before serving.


  • Use a preheated oven.
  • When mixing in the bananas, you can leave some clumps of bananas or mash it up all the way.
  • For even portions, use an ice cream scoop to divide the batter into the muffin cups.
  • Like the muffin cups with liners.
  • To make swirls of Nutella on the muffins, swirl around the spread with a wooden skewer or toothpick.
  • Don't over mix your Nutella! You want to keep the spread near the top of the batter, if it mixing is too much the muffin wont fully cook.
  • For extra special presentation, add a slice of banana to the top of each muffin before baking.
  • Bake muffins until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.
