Step By Step
Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
Grease 8 ramekins with the melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder inside each one, coating the bottom and sides evenly. Discard any excess cocoa.
Place the bananas and Nutella in a food processor or blender and blitz to a smooth texture. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.
In a large, clean dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Add the caster sugar and whisk again for about 1 minute.
Using a flexible spatula, fold half the egg whites into the banana and chocolate mixture. Once combined, very gently fold in the rest.
Divide the mixture equally between the ramekins, then place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until risen.
Sprinkle the top with icing sugar if you wish and serve immediately.
