Flourless Nutella Muffins

I’m in love with these easy muffins. I made them Sunday morning and was popping them in my mouth all day. Until there were none left. Oops.

I know minis are supposed to be better because they are smaller and less guilt, but that doesn’t really work for me. I end up eating way too many because they are so small.

These muffins are so ridiculously easy. When I finished making the batter, I had to double check that I didn’t leave something out because the batter just didn’t look ready.

But it was. And when I finished baking, out came these cute Nutella muffins.

They don’t puff up as much as regular muffins do because they don’t have any flour. Instead, they sink in quite a bit. But the inside has a cakey/muffiny texture even without the flour.close-up photo of a muffin bitten in half with others in the background

Total Time: 20 minutes
Course: Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 mini or 5 regular

These muffins are so ridiculously easy to make and so addictive! 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 medium overripe banana
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line mini muffin pan with mini muffin cups. You can also make full sized ones. Combine all ingredients together and whisk by hand until banana is completely mashed and blended into the batter and no chunks remain. If your banana is not extremely ripe, you may want to food process it first.

  2. Pour batter about 2/3 full into each muffin liner. Bake for about 10 minutes for minis and about 20 minutes for full-sized ones, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  1. Hi,

    I just stumbled across your blog, and…WOW!
    Your recipes are amazing! Within 5 minutes I have about ten recipes or so that I absolutely MUST try.
    Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your passion with us! 🙂

    greeting from Germany,
    Barbara

  2. Mmm, I can’t believe this is just a 5-ingredient muffin with NO flour! It looks absolutely incredible. Love that it has a bit of fruit in it too 🙂 Then I can convince myself it’s healthy. Thanks for posting this!

  3. I posted a recipe a couple weeks ago for very similar muffins but with PB! Yours look great!

  4. These looks amazing! And they are flourless – I can’t believe it 😉 I will definitely be giving these bad boys ago in the not too distant future 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for the recipes. I’ve tried so many of them and not a single one has failed to produce something delicious!

  6. I just made these and baked for 10 minutes – they sunk a lot (way more than your pic) and are very moist inside. (Still delish) Any suggestions? Should I bake them longer next time?

    • There’s 2 things I would try: you can add a little more batter into each one so that there is less sinkage since it is fuller to start with. And I would also try adding slightly longer baking time too, maybe increasing 1-2 minutes. hope this helps!

  7. These muffins are amazing(ly easy)! DD and I ate the whole first batch so I made a double batch immediately after. I added a little coconut flour to thicken them up a bit. I had sinking issues too, but I used the oven thermometer with the second batch so I know the oven wasn’t too hot. I’m thinking I may need new baking powder since that seems to be the only other applicable explanation per https://www.momables.com/why-do-cupcakes-sink/.

    • glad you like these! some sinkage is normal for these. if you see my photo, they do sink in the middle, but they are delicious aren’t they?

  8. Can I choose not to add banana? : )
