Mini Nutella Swirled Muffins #MuffinMonday

It's the best day of the month - Muffin Monday!

I have a winner for you guys today. The muffins have Nutella in them. Enough said. Once there's Nutella, there's perfection. I've had this particular jar for a while now. I wanted to make a Nutella buttercream for my birthday cake but over 2 months later, that cake is still unbaked. Maybe next weekend? March? Next December? I don't think the Nutella will last that long. I'll just keep eating it with a spoon.

My coworkers are getting really lucky today. They didn't get the morning glory bundt so they're getting these muffins instead.

As usual, scroll below the recipe to see what the other Muffin Monday bakers have for you today. Guaranteed yumminess.

187 grams all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons plain or vanilla yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 - 4 tablespoons of Nutella

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line or grease a
Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, milk, oil, yogurt, and vanilla.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. It will be lumpy. Don't overmix.
Divide the batter among the mini muffin wells.
Dollop between 1/4 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella on top of each muffin. Use a toothpick to gently swirl the Nutella into the batter.
Bake 10-11 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. You might get bits of Nutella on the toothpick.

Cool. Enjoy.

  1. Your coworkers are blessed, Kelly! Great idea to make mini muffins so they are easier to share. Your Nutella swirls are perfection.
    P.S. When my girls were younger - still living at home - I'd occasionally find a Nutella jar in one of their rooms, empty but for a spoon. That stuff's hard to resist.

  2. I adore poppable mini muffins so much - especially with that swirl of Nutella! YUMM!

  3. Perfect little mini muffins, I'll take two or three please.

  4. Your little muffins are adorable and your swirls are perfect.
