Banana Cinnamon Nutella Muffins

Cinnamon Nutella Muffins

This muffins looks boring at first sight, when you see them you will have the same feeling of being served with those mini cinnamon baked donuts you just want to get them when there’s no other option but don’t be fooled by its looks, there is something hidden inside.

Nutella is the secret weapon here and like my Peaches and Cream muffins the surprise only shows after you have the first bite and it is so satisfying. I got this idea when my wife told me to make some Peaches and Cream muffins for a potluck but we don’t have the right ingredients so I have to improvise so using the same concept but different ingredients.
