Expert tips:

  • Preparing the pan – You can either use paper liners or generously grease the muffin pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray. I find it’s best to grease the entire pan including the rim with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Preparing the Nutella – Warming up the Nutella in a microwave-safe bowl for 15-20 seconds makes it less thick and much easier to add to the batter.

Variations:

You can use any kind of chocolate hazelnut spread or nut spread with this recipe. You can also substitute the Nutella with any kind of jam or fruit preserve. A Nutella banana muffin cut in half on a cooling rack.
