Saying of the Day:
When Breakfast gets boring, just add Nutella.
Seriously guys, it’s true.
When, a couple of days ago, I felt as though my breakfasts were getting a bit boring, I used some of my delicious Date Sweetened Nutella to whip up a batch of Banana Muffins with a Nutella swirl. Ummm, yum.
Boring breakfast no more!
And… just to make things even awesomer (because that’s totally a word), these muffins are also:
- sweetened only with fruit
- vegan (when using vegan yogurt)
- whole wheat
- super easy
- can be frozen for quick breakfasts
Nutella Swirl Banana Muffins
