Banana Nutella Muffins

My kids come home from school EXTREMELY hungry, so I try to have a snack ready for them when they get home.  These muffins (or cupcakes as my youngest likes to call them) are perfect sweet treat for them

  • 2 Large Bananas- Mashed
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1/2 teapoon Cinnamon
  • About 1/2 Cup Nutella
  • 2 Eggs
I made 12 Regular Muffins and 10 Mini Muffins

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.  In a separate bowl cream together mashed bananas, applesauce, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs.  Add that to the flour mixture and beat until just combined.  Scoop batter into full size muffin tins until about 1/2 full.
  Then place a SMALL dollop of Nutella on top.  Place another scoop of muffin batter on top of Nutella.

 Bake for 11-12 minutes.

**for mini muffins I just filled them about 2/3 of the way full and placed a small dollop of Nutella on top of batter.  I baked them for 8 minutes.
