Nutella Muffins

September 26, 2016Teresa

Oh my goodness, Nutella Muffins are heavenly. Yes, really! I have a confession to make. I’ve never tasted anything with Nutella before this. Never even tried it. Not once. Quite frankly, I wondered what all the fuss was about. Now I know. Chocolate and hazelnuts in a rich, decadent nut butter. Yes, please! Nutella Muffins are not simply heavenly, you will not be able to stop eating them once you start!

Our pastor loves Nutella. We were at a Bible study one night having potluck and he talked about how much he loved Nutella. Yes, he could sit down and just eat it with a spoon. (Forget the fact that it’s not healthy, okay?) Well, I tucked that conversation in the back of my mind. When they had some hard times with family members in the hospital back in August, I decided to make up a Taco Black Bean Chili, Buttermilk Cornbread and something made with nutella. I chose these Nutella Muffins. Boy, am I glad I did. They were nothing short of awesome!

For those of you who are following my blog, I’ve been in the middle of a transition to a new theme for a few weeks. Unfortunately, not all the recipes transferred over as easily as I would have liked. There are some with ingredients missing or instructions missing.

My youngest son, who usually fixes all this stuff just had their fourth baby so he is too busy to fix it. I am going back through and correcting each individual recipe by hand. So far I’m only about a third of the way through 1,200 recipes. So, if you are looking at a recipe and it seems odd, or part of the instructions are missing, then email me and I’ll be sure to fix it as soon as possible.

When I made these muffins, I didn’t really measure the amount of Nutella I dolloped on top of each muffin. I basically eye-balled it and put what I thought seemed like a good amount. I also recommend that you use a bamboo skewer to swirl the Nutella into the batter rather than a toothpick. The swirls will be deeper and thicker and you won’t have it gobbed on your hands.

For those of you looking for a Nutella Muffin recipe to die for, I can’t recommend this simple and easy recipe enough. If you’re a Nutella lover, then you’ll drool over these muffins for sure. And, you’ll probably want more, more more! 🙂

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients.

Soften butter. Add sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, salt and baking powder.

Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.

Stir ingredients to combine. Don’t overmix the batter.

Place muffin liners in pan. Fill about 3/4 full with batter. I used extra large granite muffin tins.

Dollop about a tablespoon of Nutella filling over top of each muffin. Using a bamboo skewer, swirl the Nutella into each muffin.

Here’s what the muffins look like after swirling with a bamboo skewer.

Bake at 425 for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 about 15-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Allow muffins to cool and then remove to racks – or serve warm!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Beat butter, oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together and stir into wet mixture.
  4. Spoon mixture into greased or paper-lined muffin tins.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of Nutella on top.
  6. Swirl Nutella into muffin batter with bamboo skewer or toothpick.
  7. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I did not measure the Nutella with a tablespoon. I dolloped in on so I may have used more than one tablespoon on each muffin.

NOTE: While I used two cups flour, you may find 1 3/4 cup provides a less dense muffin.

    Hi!
    I’m French and I would love to try those one but unfortunatly we don’t use “cups”. Do you think you could give the recipe but with the ingredient’s weight like gr?

    Thank you very much, can’t wait to do them!!

    1. Teresa

      August 30, 2019 at 11:58 am

      Hi Angeline, 1 cup equals 128 grams or 4.5 ounces. Hope this helps.

    I made these today and had to throw them out. The picture of the ingredients show a measuring cup with milk in it as part of the recipe. However the written recipe does not show any milk. THe muffins were so dry they were inedible. I’ll bet that was the reason. I do no to want to experiment because it’s too costly. Please let us know so no one else makes the same mistake.

    1. Teresa

      March 11, 2019 at 6:23 am

      Hi, Dawn. There is NO milk in this recipe. The pictures show flour and sugar. Because all flour is not the same I suggest 1 3/4 cups to 2 cups. I have never had a bit of problem making this recipe. I’m sorry your batch didn’t turn out. Have a great week.

    I only have whole wheat flour in the house right now. Can I use that? And if so, does the measurement stay the same? Thanks!

    1. Teresa

      January 22, 2019 at 4:08 pm

      Hi, Jenna. It may make the muffins really heavy and tough. You can try it, but be prepared for the results to not be as nice as you may have hoped for.

    Can i freeze the muffins butter? Remove from freezer and use?

    1. Teresa

      November 18, 2018 at 6:48 pm

      Hi, Georgia. Are you talking about baking the muffins and freezing them? Yes, you can certainly do that. I do it ALL the time. After defrosting if you pop them in the microwave about 5-10 seconds they come out lovely.

    Why does some recipes call unsalted butter can you still use salted butter

    1. Teresa

      July 15, 2018 at 3:14 pm

      Hi Linda. I rarely use salted butter, because there is a difference in taste. You can use salted butter but I would cut back on the salt in the recipe slightly.

  • Cayden

    June 15, 2018 at 9:19 am

    Hi I made these and my family thought they were delicious!! I’m made them again this morning and they look better than the first time!! I’m so excited to try one! I substituted one teaspoon of the baking powder for half a cup of butter milk and one fourth of a teaspoon of baking soda so I hope they taste as good as the first time! Thank you so much for this recipe!

    1. Teresa

      June 16, 2018 at 6:46 am

      Hi Cayden, so glad you enjoyed the recipe. The second batch may be lighter and fluffier than the first. Hope you enjoy that batch too!

      Yes, Desirae, you can freeze the muffins for up to a month or two.

    What adjustments should I make to recipe if I want to make them banana Nutella muffins with 2 ripe mashed bananas?

    1. Teresa

      May 16, 2018 at 1:50 pm

      Hi, Linda. I actually have a Banana Nutella Swirl Muffin that you may want to try instead. It’s here: http://cantstayoutofthekitchen.com/2016/10/13/banana-nutella-swirl-muffins/ . These muffins will turn out with a totally different taste and texture if you add the bananas. I’m not sure what I’d do to compensate. But if the batter seems too gooey I’d probably add additional flour. Sorry I can’t be of greater help.

      1. Linda

        May 16, 2018 at 7:06 pm

        Thanks, Teresa. Thinking I may have to try both. 😉

    Just made them today and they turned out really good! The batter is light and fluffy and the Nutella is gooey yet crispy on the outside. I doubled up the recipe to make 24 regular sized muffins and am really excited to sell them at my school bake sale.

    1. Teresa

      October 16, 2017 at 8:52 pm

      I am thrilled they turned out so well for you! That’s a great idea to sell them for school bake sales. (Although I’d have a hard time keeping my hands out of them). 🙂 Thanks for letting me know. Have a great week.

    If I do a dozen muffins do I do the same time. 425 and then 350?

    1. Teresa

      March 6, 2017 at 1:18 pm

      Yes, they need to be cooked the same way each time. Length of time at 350 may be slower or longer depending on your oven.

  • Rhonda

    February 26, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    The recipe says 1/4 cup of butter which equals half of a stick of butter. However, the pictures look like a full stick of butter. Please clarify. This could explain why people have said their batter was too thick. Thank you.

    1. Teresa

      February 27, 2017 at 9:57 am

      Hi Rhonda, I am SOOOO sorry. I went back and looked at my pictures and realized I used a whole stick of butter and not a half stick. It was a typo on my part. So sorry for all of you who made this and it was too thick. Yes, an extra half stick of butter will make a difference. I’ve corrected the recipe now so it should be okay. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Yep, mine turned out like dough too.

    1. Teresa

      February 2, 2017 at 2:47 pm

      Sorry, Gena, I didn’t have any issues with this recipe. But if a muffin recipe does turn out too thick, you can add a little milk and that will help.

      Hi, Neva. It makes 8 jumbo muffins or about a dozen regular-sized muffins.

  • Grace

    November 3, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    Was there milk at all in this batter because mine came out to be more like a dough. I see a measuring cup of white liquid, not sure if it’s ococnut oil or milk but you didn’t mention it. I ended up adding some milk to make it at least look like a batter.

    1. Teresa

      November 3, 2016 at 2:29 pm

      Hi Grace. No that container is sugar. I only used the oil, butter, vanilla and eggs to moisten the batter. No milk or coconut milk. Not sure why yours turned out like dough. If you look at my batter, it’s pretty thick. Still thought these turned out great.
