Nutella Swirl Pumpkin Muffin

Pumpkin season is in full swing, and this month for Healthy Food Friday with American Express we have tons of goodies coming your way! A month or so back I shared my Homemade Nutella, and since then I’ve made it my mission to add the deliciousness into other baked goods. Like Nutella Pizza and now Pumpkin Swirl Muffins. Because… Nutella.

Pumpkins are also a serious superfood. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and often used to prevent and treat ailments. Even my vet told me to give some to baby Jax if he has an upset stomach!

 These muffins are… spongy, moist, loaded with pumpkin, a hint of sweet, and the perfect treat.

    3. These look AMAZING! I can’t wait to try them! Pumpkin and Nutella seem like the perfect match 🙂

    4. Both of these recipe sound amazing! Love anything Nutella!

    5. Rich says:

      Sounds good, but what do you do with the optional Pumpkin Glaze if you use it. Does it go on muffins before or after glazing. I would assume right after baking to melt on top, is that correct?

    6. These are just too cute!! They look and sound divine!!!

    7. Heather says:

      Can you use regular GF flour instead of almond?

    8. I actually have no words…I made paleo nutella cookies the other day but this. THIS takes the cake. OR muffin. Pinning, winning and grinning.

    9. Nice swirl. It kind of reminds me of the top of a marble cake with its nice designs.

      Does anybody know how many calories are in each muffin? I made 12 out of a doublength batch and about 1 tsp full of the homemade Nutella.

        I plugged in the ingredients for just the Nutella muffins (no toppings and 3 tbs of store bought nutella) into my Calorie Counting App and it said for 12 muffins: 113 calories, 7.3g fat and 9.7g carbs. Not bad at all, can’t wait to make these!!!

    11. You made your own Nutella?!?! I would be adding that to everything too! These look like muffin perfection 🙂

    12. […] my thought was to make fellow Boston based foodies Pumpkin Nutella Muffins.  To my dismay I was lacking the almond flour, if you do any baking you know that there is big […]

      If you’re watching your waistline that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some treats of the season! This recipe is a great, healthier alternative to most pumpkin desserts.
