Nutella Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend.  I got to enjoy some outdoor time in the sun, which was really lovely.

Now it’s back to cloudy skies with rain in the forecast.  But that’s okay because it’s not snow and April showers will bring May flowers, right?

And it’s Monday…I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: muffins make mornings better, especially on Monday!

WAIT!! The sun’s out now!

Okay, back to the muffins…if you have a few ripe bananas, don’t throw them out! You’ll need them for these delicious muffins!

Nutella Banana Oatmeal Muffins
from Crepes of Wrath
makes 12 regular muffins or 8 jumbo muffins

Ingredients
1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
2/3 c old-fashioned oats
3/4 c sugar
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
2 large eggs
1/2 c unsalted butter, melted (that’s 1 stick)
3 very ripe large bananas, mashed
1 t vanilla extract
2/3 c Nutella
1/4 c white chocolate chips (optional)

What To Do
Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Lightly grease muffin tin with non-stick spray or line with cupcake/muffin papers.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, oats, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, Nutella, melted butter and vanilla.  With a rubber spatula, lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until combined and the batter is thick and chunky.  If using, fold in the chocolate chips.

Divide batter into prepared muffin tin.  Bake until muffins are golden brown and a cake tester (toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes (25 minutes for jumbo muffins).

My Comments
I actually like these better without the white chocolate chips.

To minimize mess, use a cookie scoop to put the batter in the muffin tin.

 

These muffins are great to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.  These muffins are great to enjoy with a friend! I read yesterday that April is “Bake for Good” month where we’re all being encouraged to bake and share with those in our community who are hungry and in need of relief.  This could be anyone!

So, even though the sun’s not out anymore (I enjoyed the brief sighting) you can still bring some sunshine into someone’s life by baking some yummy muffins (or cookies or cupcakes or brownies or…there’s so much to choose from!) and giving them with a smile and a word of encouragement or thanks.  Sharing is caring!

Have a great day!
