Peanut Butter Banana Muffins with Nutella Swirl

One year ago today I welcomed my second lovie into the world. He has brightened my life and filled my heart beyond my imagination. I wanted to make a special little morning surprise for him when he woke up this morning. He is a big waffle, pancake or toast type of little guy. I decided to introduce something new in something he really enjoyed. He had yet to try peanuts or cocoa so I married all the ingredients into a yummy little package and him and his sister were very pleased with Mami this morning I am happy to say. Happy Birthday Baby Joy!

These are delicious. I ended mixing the Nutella in with the batter on the second batch and they were really good. I figured they had approximately 160 cals each…a great quick breakfast!

Hi Lilian!

I saw this recipe yesterday on Pinterest, and I just decided to it out. I didn’t have quite enough peanut butter, but the muffins turned out absolutely delicious. My kids love them, and ate them as dessert. I will definitely make them again after I buy more peanut butter. Thank you!!

Ignore that comment! I hadn’t refreshed my page since yesterday!

This looks great! BUT, the recipe doesn’t actually say at which point you add the bananas or add things to the bananas. I’m going to just go for it anyway, but I thought you’d want to know. They look AMAZING!

Thank you Amanda. I hope you liked the muffins. :)

…when do you add the bananas?

Nicole November 17, 2011 at 8:52 AM

Aye! Thank you so much for catching that. I am sorry for the oversight. I have added it where it belongs in step 4.
