Jorge likes bananas as much as I like sugary kid cereal, glittery eyeshadow, Friends reruns and shoe sales — all combined.

No seriously, that is how much he loves bananas.

So making these Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins was a no brainer. Bananas for him — Nutella for me.

When we first met, Jorge was having a party at his apartment and he ate a banana while drinking a beer.

I have no idea if he remembers this, but it firmly stuck in my mind as one of the weirdest combinations I had ever seen.

However a few weeks later, he topped the Banana & Beer special when he had his spaghetti with a side of banana.

And yes, a side of banana is the correct term. He actually put the banana on the side of his plate — almost right on top of his spaghetti.

He then proceeded to eat bites of the banana in-between bites of spaghetti. It was horrifying.

So it should come as no surprise, that bananas are a constant thing in our house.

Usually they are always eaten before they become overripe, but since Jorge travels a lot for work, sometimes the bananas go bad.

Or is it really that they go better? Since you can make yummy things with them.

Like these Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins and Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes?

Jorge got home on Friday from a work trip and I had a bunch of bananas that were way more brown than yellow.

And that could only mean one thing, Banana Dream Cake or Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins.

Since Jorge and I didn’t need a whole big layer cake just for ourselves, the muffins won this round.

These Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins are one of my absolute favorite ways to use up overripe bananas.

Obviously they are tasty (hello, banana + Nutella = match made in heaven), but they also can be whipped up in under 30 minutes from start to finish.

Total win-win in my book.

Update: I have been making these banana muffins for over 5 years now and they are still my families favorite muffins.

In the past 5 years, we had our twins, Ellie and Lyla. If it’s possible, they are even bigger fans of these muffins than we are!

But how could we not all love them? They have nutella on top. Let’s just call them what they are..breakfast cupcakes!

This post was updated on April 19th 2018 to include new photos and a video. I hope your family are still enjoying these muffins as much as we are!

  1. #7: Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins – The Baking Musician

    […] don’t make muffins too often, so I like to follow this recipe that I found the first time I made these. The process is very similar to the Earl Grey Tea Cake […]

  2. Seema Syed

    Absolutely scrumptious!! I made 24 and everyone loved them! I substituted white sugar with brown sugar and added walnuts instead of pecans. Sooo good!!

  3. Sarah

    These are so good! I made my kids jumbo size for an after school snack but I think I’m going to make mini muffins using this recipe for our family road trip this summer!

    My batter didn’t come out quite as thick as yours looks in the video. Next time I’ll make sure to thicken them up a bit, otherwise the nutella just sinks and is hard to spread around. Either way, I’d recommend others try warming/melting their nutella a bit. It made it much easier to swirl!

    Just made these cupcakes last night! They are delish and were loved by my wife and in-laws.
    I had only used 3 med ripe bananas and it was perfect. I also cut the sugars by a few tbs – being a diabetic, I figured sweet enough including nutella!
    Thanks for the pics and easy instructions – will definitely make these again! They looked exactly as yours!

    Just made this with a bunch of over-ripe banana! Its perfect! Before this, I only made banana muffins,/bread and every time we did not finish it. So adding nutella is one whole new level! We love it and we definitely will finish everything!

  7. Elisha

    I made a double batch because I had a lot of bananas and shared with our neighbors. They all begged for the recipe for these Nutella Banana Muffins. Love them.

  8. Emma

    I made these for the first time today and they turned out amazing, in spite of several modifications to lessen the guilt of the nutella.

    I used whole wheat flour (full two cups), substituted apple sauce for the oil and used stevia in the raw in place of the granulated sugar.

    I divided the batch into 12 muffins and did not add the pecans.

    They are so good!!
