Get your banana fix in cupcake form with these delicious banana cupcakes with a Nutella frosting recipe.

When I was younger, my mom used to make the best banana cupcakes with nutella frosting. I loved them so much that I would beg her to make them for me every time she made a batch. I would never say no to a plate of banana cupcakes with Nutella frosting.

Whenever I make banana cupcakes for myself, I always make a double batch so that I can freeze some for later. I never know when I might get a craving for a cupcake and not have time to make them myself.

Even though I can never resist eating a banana cupcake whenever I get the chance, I always enjoy the unique flavor combinations that can be created with the frosting. I often make batches that are flavored with different types of nuts, chocolate, and even Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.

There’s just something about a banana cupcake with Nutella frosting that makes it the perfect dessert. I know that I’ll always love these cupcakes and I hope that you’ll give them a try soon.
