2011, Recipe 88: Nutella Banana Muffins

Recipe courtesy of Miss in the Kitchen

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
1 banana mashed (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar.  In a separate bowl, combine Nutella, banana, butter, buttermilk, egg and vanilla.  Stir wet ingredients into dry just until combined.  Spoon into greased muffin tins.  Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted comes out clean.  Remove from pan to wire rack to cool.

Results: This actually took only about 15 minutes to cook.  The muffins were so yummy!  For a pre-run snack, I split them in half and toasted them, then spread with peanut butter. MMM!
