Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins

I found another way to eat Nutella for breakfast.

Saying of the Day:

When Breakfast gets boring, just add Nutella.

Seriously guys, it's true.

When, a couple of days ago, I felt as though my breakfasts were getting a bit boring, I used some of my delicious Date Sweetened Nutella to whip up a batch of Banana Muffins with a Nutella swirl.  Ummm, yum.

Boring breakfast no more!

And... just to make things even awesomer (because that's totally a word), these muffins are also:
  • sweetened only with fruit
  • vegan (when using vegan yogurt)
  • whole wheat
  • super easy 
  • can be frozen for quick breakfasts
I think I know what you'll be baking tomorrow!

Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt (greek, vegan, etc)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp date paste
  • 1/4 cup Date Sweetened Nutella or regular Nutella
Preheat oven to 350F.  Place dry ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together.  In another bowl, mash bananas.  Add yogurt, milk, and date paste.  Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until a smooth batter forms.  Scoop batter into lined muffin tins until about 3/4 cup full.  Add a dollop of Nutella and swirl a bit.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Store in airtight container for up to 4 days, or freeze to laste longer.  Recipe makes 10 muffins.

Muffin + Banana + Nutella = Best Day Ever!

    actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate
