I was bored the other day and decided to browse my cupboard for ideas on what to bake. I always do this before I go out and buy specific ingredients. I used to buy things for individual recipes and my grocery bills got out of control. So now I just peruse my own personal grocery store inside my pantry and refrigerator before buying more things to stuff into my already overflowing kitchen.
Anyway, I found Nutella, oatmeal, really ripe bananas, and white chocolate chips. I thought these ingredients would make a great muffin, so here we are. I made them in my jumbo muffin tin because nothing’s better for breakfast than a big, delicious muffin. The tops of this are sweet and crunchy, and inside the Nutella, oatmeal, and white chocolate chips make for a tasty combination! You could easily substitute peanut butter for the Nutella, if you want. But you should definitely try these! Recipe after the jump.
Combine your flour, oatmeal, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
Mash up your bananas.
And beat them in with eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and Nutella.
Gradually beat the oatmeal mixture into the wet ingredients, until just moistened.
Fold in your white chocolate chips.
Fill your muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or 25 minutes if you’re making jumbo muffins.
These were too good!
- 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ⅔ cup old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant)
- ¾ cup granulated white sugar
- 1 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
- 3 very ripe large bananas, mashed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup Nutella
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips (I threw 'em in because I had some)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- 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. (The important thing is not to over mix the batter). Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Scrape batter into prepared muffin tin. Bake until muffins are golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes (25 minutes for jumbo muffins). Yields 12 regular muffins or 8 jumbo muffins.
