Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins

As with all my new recipes, someone is due a thank you.  This one came from Pinterest.  Hop on over to this original recipe and give them credit!  They deserve it because these are awesome!

The recipe I found on pinterest has been on my clipboard in the kitchen for a week just waiting to be made.  This morning afforded us just enough time to get them made, with the help of my buddy.  He LOVES to help in the kitchen.  He'll be a catch for some lady... when he's thirty forty.

He was helping to whisk the dry ingredients here.  Notice the lovely bouquet he picked yesterday!

I know this recipe calls for Nutella by name, but we used some of my favorite Trader Joe products.  I adore the coconut oil spray and the cocoa almond spread is delicious!  Just ask Little Man.  He licked the spoon dry.

Get a buddy to help you line your muffin pan with liners.  SO much better for cleanup.  And we need that around here, for sure!

** Also, notice Lightning McQueen.  Such a photo-bomber!**

If you're like me, you need the recipe handy, so here it is!

Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins
Yield: 18 muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined. Set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together banana, sugar, brown sugar. Beat in egg, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture, until there are no lumps. Fold in pecans.

Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Top each muffin with about 1 teaspoon of Nutella and use a toothpick to swirl it into the batter.

Bake muffins for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve warm or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

With help from MyFitnessPal ap, I created the recipe and got these nutrition facts.  Hope this helps!
