Banana and Nutella puffs

Banana and Nutella puffsThe more I learn about food and cooking, the more I realise that it’s often the simplest and easy dishes that are the best.

This is a chocolately adaptation of a really easy dessert I saw on Huey’s Kitchen. He’s on the tely when I’m getting ready for work and although he can be a bit bumbling and messy (and his jokes are pretty terrible), I find him and his style of cooking much more real than some of the current highly stylised and polished cooking shows.

Banana and Nutella puffsBananas and chocolate are great friends, it’s such a winning a combo. I love how gloriously messy these little puffs are. Who said cooking had to be tidy?

Banana and Nutella puffsThis is an amazingly simple dessert that works just as well for a sweet afternoon snack as it would at the end of a meal for dinner guests. And I’m willing to bet that it’s a BIG hit with the little ones, too.

If you’re after a dairy-free alternative to Nutella, you can try Loving Earth’s coconut chocolate butter, Mayver’s Dark Chocolate Super Spread or Cocotella from jt’s Coconut Essence.Banana and Nutella puffs
