Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter a muffin pan or line with paper liners.
In a small bowl, stir together milk and lemon juice. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk mixture, butter, sugar and eggs. Stir in mashed bananas; mix well. Pour over dry ingredients; stir just until combined. Drop chocolate-hazelnut spread by spoonfuls over batter; fold and swirl into batter. Don’t overmix.
Spoon into prepared muffin pan.
Bake for 22 to 24 min or until a tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 min. Transfer to rack to cool completely.
Freeze those overripe bananas to use in these muffins at a later date.
Skip the chocolate-hazelnut spread and use peanut butter instead. Or skip both and make banana muffins.
No lemons? Use white or cider vinegar instead.
