Nutella Filled Pumpkin Muffins - moist and fluffy pumpkin muffins filled with sweet Nutella!
I've been on a chocolate and pumpkin kick lately. Few recipes are coming your way featuring this combo. If you haven't tried it - you are missing out! It's fantastic! These fluffy muffins have the pumpkin and all of the spices you would expect but the sweet Nutella filling takes them over the top.
We loved these Skinny Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins so I knew these would be a hit as well. And they were! A huge hit! The whole dozen disappeared in no time.
I love how soft and fluffy these muffins are! They are one of our favorite to bake this time of year. The batter is really easy and whips up in minutes. It's a fool-proof recipe! I filled the muffin pan cups half way, dropped a teaspoon of Nutella in each and topped it with more pumpkin batter. You can also drizzle some warmed up Nutella over the tops of the muffins, especially if you are serving them for a brunch or a get-together. That way everyone will know which muffins have the special filling. 🙂

You can only imagine how fast these muffins disappeared! Every time I make my pumpkin muffins, I try to save some for the next day, for a snack with my morning coffee. But they are gone so fast, I can never hide any! I need to start making a double batch! 🙂
