Banana Blueberry Muffins

Since I have been in the US, I have taken several trips. I have flown to Virginia and Kentucky, and driven to/through North Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Florida!!! Let’s just say I have hardly slowed down long enough to enjoy all the wonderful and endless ingredients around me. But every once in a while I stopped for just enough time to make something delicious, like these banana blueberry muffins with an oatmeal streusel topping!!!

Today, I have something very special for you… maybe you have tried it before and maybe you haven’t; maybe you will like the combination and maybe you won’t, but without further delay I present to you (Drum roll, please) Mini Banana Muffins filled with Nutella andGreek Giveaway

These mini muffins were such a hit with everyone who tasted them, even if they weren’t a huge fan of nutella to begin with. I used my simple and healthier banana bread recipe from here, and simply injected some nutella straight into the middles once they were cool! This particular banana bread recipe is pretty light anyway, so with the addition of nutella and the banana flavor these went from being good to jumping off the charts! Seriously, if you are like me and you love to pair nutella with almost anything, including for many years now bananas, you might just not be able to stand every eating them plain again. If you do not have a kitchen tool that can be used to inject the nutella, swirl it straight into the batter. The results will be different, but the chocolate swirl of nutella and banana bread will hopefully still rock your world!

Banana Bread Mini-Muffins filled with Nutella Recipe: 
Makes 1 loaf, 6 mini loaves, muffins or mini-muffins
1 cup bananas (~2 cups), mashed
1/2 cup plain yogurt (I use Greek yogurt)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 oil (canola or olive oil is healthiest)
1/2 – 3/4 cup sugars (I use 1/4 brown, 1/4 cup white)
1 lg. egg or 2 lg. egg whites, beaten
1-2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour (I use 1 c. whole wheat, 1/2 cup AP)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
*Oats to sprinkle on top, optional. 
I like the oatmeal because I do not like banana bread the next day if the top is moist and soft, I think the oats help! 

Preheat oven to 350° (180° C), and line or butter your loaf pan. In a small bowl, mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, and baking soda, then set aside. In a larger bowl, beat oil and sugars, slowly adding egg, then vanilla. I use a sifter, adding all of my dry ingredients and slowly adding 1/3 of the mix to the sugar mixture. Next, fold in 1/2 of the yogurt/banana mix, alternating with flour until everything is just moistened. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for about 35-45 minutes, watching carefully not to burn the top. If the top begins to burn, use a foil tent to cover and continue baking. Cool on wire rack in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan, continuing to cool completely.
Simple as that and you are ready to enjoy a wonderful new delight!
