What I meant to say was, when you’re looking for a breakfast for dinner recipe that picky eaters will eat, because, Mama these nutella stuffed double chocolate banana muffins are not healthy, but you will feel happy after eating them.
It’s amazing to me how often breakfast for dinner makes me happy. I mean, it’s not like it’s every week, though we have had many months like that. Especially when I’ve got the Hyperemesis Gravidarum, it’s not morning sickness thing going on. And heaven knows I’m not the one making it. Like, at all. I’m not even on the same floor of the house, because smells are my worst nightmare during pregnancy.
But, I’ve become distracted, let’s not bring HG into the conversation, let’s stick with chocolate.
After years of testing our BEST Banana Bread recipe we had no choice, but to go crazy with 500 billion adapted recipes and this particular nutella stuffed double chocolate banana muffins recipe is a combination of our obsession with a chocolate muffin we found in Italy, this Nutella Swirled Banana Muffins recipe and our favorite, moist banana bread with chocolate chips.
I still can’t figure out why so many of our readers resist chocolate chips in banana bread, so if you must take them out of this recipe, I understand, but you’re missing out for sure.
Our Nutella Swirled Banana Muffins recipe has a lot of good information about muffins, so please make sure you take a second to pop on over there.
What Makes Muffins Rise
There are a lot of different recipes with a lot of different combinations to make the muffins rise. Typically baking powder is a go to for a quick bread, but in all of our banana bread testing we discovered that the acid from the bananas and the baking soda work best to make a nice rise on the muffins.
If you’re making regular muffins without fruit or a quick bread loaf you’ll often see baking powder which is great.
What Should Bananas Look Like for Banana Bread?
Bananas should never be black or pure yellow for banana bread. These are the perfect bananas for banana bread.
