These Nutella banana muffins are soft and moist. They are stuffed in the middle AND swirled on top with Nutella for an extra chocolaty and nutty treat!


  • 1 cup (240g) overripe mashed bananas (about 2 large)
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60g) sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5ml) baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5ml) salt
  • 1/2 cup Nutella


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners or generously grease (incl. the rim) with butter or nonstick spray (preferred method).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, granulated sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract.
  3. In another bowl, toss together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Divide half of the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Place the Nutella in a small microwave-safe bowl and warm it up in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Add a teaspoon of it to each muffin.
  5. Repeat and swirl the Nutella using a toothpick on top of the batter.
  6. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
