These delicious mini banana cupcakes with Nutella frosting are a delightful treat that you can enjoy while following your diet. Each cupcake is perfectly portioned and topped with a creamy and indulgent Nutella frosting.
How To Make Mini Banana Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting
To begin, preheat your oven to 350°F and coat a 24-cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray. This will ensure that the cupcakes don’t stick to the pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. This combination of dry ingredients will give your cupcakes a light and fluffy texture.
In a separate large bowl, mix together the plain fat-free Greek yogurt, mashed banana (pureed from 2 large ripe bananas), egg, sugar, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. These ingredients provide moisture and flavor to the cupcakes without adding excessive calories.
Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold them together until well combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter, as this can result in dense cupcakes.
Evenly divide the batter among the prepared mini muffin pan, filling each cup about 1 3/4 tablespoons. This will ensure that each cupcake bakes evenly and has the perfect bite-sized portion.
Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Keep an eye on them as baking times may vary slightly.
Once the cupcakes are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for about 30 minutes. This will ensure that they set properly and are easier to handle when frosting.
When you’re ready to serve, whisk together the fat-free whipped topping and Nutella until well combined. This creamy and chocolatey frosting is the perfect finishing touch for your mini banana cupcakes.
Spread approximately 2 teaspoons of the Nutella frosting onto each cupcake, ensuring that each one is generously topped. The combination of the moist banana cupcake and the rich Nutella frosting creates a delectable flavor profile.
With a serving size of one cupcake, you can enjoy these sweet treats guilt-free while still staying on track with your Weight Watchers journey. Indulge in the delightful combination of flavors without compromising your healthy eating goals.
