Banana Nutella and Coconut Muffins

Once more, I forgot to take a picture. I promise I’ll remember next time!!

I can’t even describe these muffins, other than saying they’re HEAVEN. The amount of the “banana taste” is perfect (I’m not much of a plain banana bread fan) and the Nutella center is just, divine.




  • 150 g all-purpose flour
  • 110 g butter
  • 70 g sugar
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • Nutella or milk chocolate with hazelnut filling
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 of a pack of baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 50 g shredded coconut (optional)
  • 3 pinches of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing until well incorporated. Add salt and vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon if using. Add to wet ingredients.
  4. Add mashed bananas to the mixture.
  5. Fill each muffin cup about a third of the way with batter, then drop a teaspoon or two of Nutella (or a piece of chocolate) into the center of each muffin. Portion the remaining batter evenly among the muffin liners. Sprinkle shredded coconut on top of each muffin liner/batter.
  6. Bake on the center rack for 19-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
