Pumpkin Nutella Muffin Ingredients
- Baking Powder
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Nutella or hazelnut spread
This seems like a lot of ingredients, but you probably have most of them in your pantry. I stock up on pumpkin puree in the fall so I don’t run out.
Incorporate the dry ingredients.
And mix until blended.
Add the wet ingredients and stir. Mix the dry into the wet until combined. Don’t overmix.
Pour into muffin cups. Leave some room for them to rise in the oven.
Add a dolup of Nutella on top.
Then take a fork, knife, or ugly green utensil and swirl the Nutella into the batter.
Just swirl until if looks mixed, but not fully incorporated. You want to see the difference in color from the pumpkin batter and the darker Nutella.
Bake and let cool. Set these pumpkin nutella muffins out for an after school snack and they’ll be gone in no time.
I like to freeze some so I can pull one out every morning for a special treat on the way to work.
Either way, these pumpkin Nutella muffins are sure to be a hit.
