I'm sure you expected a decorative Easter-themed post from me, but I couldn't resist whipping up these babies after I spotted the recipe on Pinterest. What's lovelier to bake in the morning than muffins? Nutella muffins! I ordered a Nutella cake for a co-worker of mine, who is the biggest Nutella-lover I know, and I gave me an idea to incorporate Nutella into the muffins. Along with two ripe bananas I had left, and some oats, these were the fabulous ingredients for these muffins. I baked them and stuffed 3 immediately into my mouth, leaving just enough muffins to be photographed :P! Rating: 5- out of 5.
