Nutella Swirl Muffins

Did someone say Nutella? Pretty sure that question/statement gets said a lot in my house. See my kids, especially Lele has a slight obsession with Nutella. She would eat it every day if she could. The other day she asked me to make her a Nutella sandwich for school and I was like no. It isn’t really a lunch meal, it is a snack thing. So that day I decided to play with some Nutella and out came these amazing Nutella Muffins.

They are Lele’s favorite muffin I make and the other kids, it is one of their favorite muffins. The muffin itself is flavorful and moist, then swirl Nutella through and you’ve got the Perfect Nutella Muffin!!

The muffin itself is easy to make. You just need a mixing bowl, whisk and spatula. No stand or hand mixer required. Maybe a little strength. Your eggs must be room temperature or you will have scrambled eggs when you add the eggs to the butter mixture. With muffins you want to be careful not to over mix them or it will make the muffins tough and it will sink when baking. Watch the full video to see how easy it is to make them.

Tips & Recommendations

You can substitute sour cream or buttermilk for the Greek yogurt. I microwave the Nutella for about 20 seconds, you need to be able to swirl it through the muffin batter.
