Nutella Swirled Banana Muffins

It seems like there's endless recipes for using ripe bananas. And that's a good thing because every once in a while, I have a few lying around that either need to be tossed or whipped up to create something lovely tasting. If I have a little time on my hands and am craving some banana baked goods, then its the perfect opportunity.

My boys are really loving playing in the kitchen with me these days. And what a fun activity for them to experiment. It gets them away from their tablets and they actually learn by doing. What a concept! I wanted to make some easy banana muffins, but with Nutella, since I'd never done that. My boys and I are Nutella fans. When we don't have any dessert in the house, the three of us sneak little bites from a spoon. Shhh, don't tell anyone though.

For this muffin recipe, I gave them each the task of mashing up a banana. Then they took turns adding the ingredients into the bowl. For the last part of the recipe, and with my supervision and help, they added the batter into the muffin tin. I was brave and even let them stir the Nutella into the batter. Then it was time to bake the muffins and wait. Since they bake for about thirty minutes, it was the perfect amount of time to construct a two story Lego house. Just be careful, you might have so much fun you won't hear the timer. They turned out moist and sweet and the Nutella went well with the banana. I think I know what we'll be having for breakfast tomorrow.

The recipe for these Nutella Swirled Banana Muffins came from here, the The only changes we made is we halved the recipe and only added Nutella to the bottom part of the muffins. I hope you have the chance to get your muffin game on soon!
