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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

    1. 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!!!

  3. These look great Lexi…Do you think this would bake well as a loaf?? I’m looking for a pumpkin loaf/bread recipe…thanks 🙂

  4. 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.
