Hello everyone. This is Sheila from Welcome To My Kitchen. Hope you will stop by my blog to grab a recipe, enter a giveaway or just to leave a comment. I love hearing from my readers and connecting with other bloggers. Thanks for visiting hope to talk to you soon.
This morning I was in the baking mood so I decided to make
some Banana Nut Nutella Mini Muffins. I love Nutella, and
I love incorporating it into my recipes. I have never used
Nutella in my banana bread recipe before. So I decided to experiment and use my mini muffin Wilton pan for this recipe. My banana bread always comes out moist and delicious.
I had a little Nutella left from a previous recipe so I decided to
put some in my banana bread batter. I also added a teaspoon of
cinnamon. I sprinkled a few pecans on the top and popped them in the oven. These mini muffins are great for a quick snack or breakfast on the run. I hope you will try this recipe. The Nutella is what makes these mini muffins exceptional.
Banana Nut Nutella Mini Muffins
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
or vanilla extract
4 bananas mashed
1/4 cup Nutella
Mix dry ingredients until incorporated, set aside.
Add sugar, melted butter, egg and vanilla to standing mixer.
Beat until mixture is mixed well. Add mashed bananas
and mix until incorporated. Add dry ingredients and mix
just until you can no longer see the flour. With a mini scoop
add batter to mini muffin pan and sprinkle a few chopped pecans on the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick
inserted comes out clean. I love to serve these fabulous muffins

I received the opportunity to review for Woolzies Dryer Balls.
I was very interested in this product when I heard about
it on Facebook. So I contacted the company and I received the package last week.
I do all my laundry on Friday every week. Normally I don't use any fabric softener on my clothes. I know this sounds strange but I really have never used fabric softener. I find that most of the liquid fabric softeners have a really strong overpowering smell. So when I received Woolzies I was excited to review this product.
Woozlies are made from New Zealand Wool, all natural and do not contain harsh chemicals. You get six dryer balls in a box.
I tossed the balls in the dryer and when I removed the clothes I was amazed. My clothes were soft and there was no static. I really loved the fact that I accomplished all this without having to use the harsh chemical fabric softeners or dryer sheets.
Woolzies are good for 1000 loads and reduces your drying time by 25%. I use them every time I do laundry now. I really love this product and I am very glad that I got to try it.
Woolzie Dryer Balls are an amazing product. I hope that you will try them.Good for you and the environment. Would you like to win a box of Woolzies to try in your own home? This is a $30 value. One lucky reader of Welcome To My Kitchen will win a box of Woolizes. Simply enter the giveaway below.
Disclosure: I received free of charge a box of Woolzies Dryer Balls for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced by the company or product received.
