Every time I let myself buy a jar of Nutella my mind naturally wanders to bananas and desserts.
I say “let” because with it’s irresistible pull, Nutella cannot be safely kept in my pantry for any length of time. Once opened it needs to be used fairly fast before the spoon scrapes bottom. A sentiment I know many of us share.
I fell in love with the banana and Nutella combination a long time ago. Bananas love the hazelnut kissed spread almost as much as I. They seemingly bring out the best in each other and top the list as one of my favorite ways to showcase Nutella.
These banana cupcakes couldn’t be easier to whip up using one-bowl and a short list of ingredients. They are a cross between a cupcake and a muffin. They fall somewhere in the middle, being more dense than a cupcake but not quite a muffin.
The frosting is super sweet like candy. It needs to be used immediately before it sets up and becomes hard to spread. And not so pretty.
In the end all that matters is they taste pretty. And they do.
