Servings 12 muffins


  • 1/3 cup Butter unsalted, melted
  • 1/2 cup Organic coconut sugar
  • 3 Bananas medium, over-ripe, mashed
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp Nutella


  • To the mashed bananas in a bowl, add melted butter, and mix it thoroughly. Add organic coconut sugar and mix again.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix once again.
  • Using a sieve, sift whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon, and add to the wet ingredients mixture. Using a spatula, fold gently till all ingredients form a homogeneous mixture (Do not over-mix at this stage).
  • Grease and dust the muffin pan. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit (or 180 degree Celsius). Pour batter into greased (or lined) muffin cups.
  • Add half a tablespoon of Nutella over the muffin batter in each muffin cup. Then, use a toothpick to gently swirl Nutella over the batter.
  • Bake the muffins in preheated oven for 25 minutes or till done (when the inserted toothpick comes out clean).
  • The Banana Nutella Muffins are ready to be served warm, or these can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week!



  • Organic Coconut Sugar – If Coconut Sugar is not available, you can replace it with equal amount of Jaggery powder (unrefined cane sugar powder). These are the healthier sugar alternatives.
  • Do not over-mix the batter after adding dry ingredients.
  • Swirl Nutella gently over the muffin batter. Otherwise the swirls won't be seen after the muffins are baked.
