Dare I say it? Yes! These are heavenly! I kept thinking that I wanted to make a muffin with Nutella for my kids. One child just had a yucky orthodontic contraption put in her mouth & she’s barely eating. The other child, eats to live unless it blows her away… & this will! Okay so Nutella reigns king in my house. I grew up eating this, it is after all an Italian staple. My kids enjoy it just as much as I did growing up. So it starts there… okay but what to pair it with? Banana, of course! And mix in a few Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips & how bad could it be?
1/2 c of granulated sugar
1/2 c of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter or Butter
2 eggs, at room temperature
1c of whole wheat flour
1c of unbleached all purpose flour (I use King Arthur)
1/2 tsp of kosher salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 ripe bananas
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 c of non fat, plain Chobani
1/2 c of Nutella
1/2 c of chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate bar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your muffin pan with non stick baking Pam.
In your mixer with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together both flours, salt & baking powder. Add to the sugar mixture. Blend together until incorporated. Add bananas, vanilla, Chobani & Nutella. By hand, mix in the chocolate chips.
Fill each chamber 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Insert a toothpick and when it comes out clean… they are ready. Remove and let sit on the counter for 4 minutes. Then remove and place on a platter & enjoy!
