Banana Nutella Muffins

Share

I don’t ever need a reason to bake, but today a very good friend sent out an
       S.O.S.

She has been experiencing chronic pain for what I’m sure feels like an eternity to her.

Her husband is amazing, and has been doing it all, but everyone needs a little help form their friends sometimes.  They have two precious, growing boys, that eat non-stop.  Snacks were the order of the day.

Healthy, easy, grab and go snacks that the kids could get on their own.
Like I said, I never need a reason to bake, but this seemed like a really good reason to turn on the oven
{even when the AC has been running all morning}

Banana bread is a go-to recipe for me, but this would require cutting, and plates, and who needs that.
I decided to go with muffins – very kid friendly, and because I adore these boys, I filled the muffins with nutella. (homemade recipe here)

I sure hope the boys like them:)
