Introduction: Nutella Pumpkin Muffins
I have to say, I am just AMAZED at the flavor of these muffins! I was going to just post the ingredients for regular pumpkin-spice muffins, but I saw a commercial for Nutella, and I got a bright idea! Lightbulb moments are so much fun! Are those muffins beautiful, or what??? Using the Muffin Master Mix, these muffins are easy, tasty, and FUN TO EAT!
Today was the first day of school in my neighborhood, and I was just thinking that my children would have devoured these muffins in a heartbeat, and run off to school with a nutritious breakfast with fiber, the nutrients of the pumpkin and dairy, and a bit of chocolaty taste as well. Ok, Ok, they're really NOT the MOST nutritious things on the planet, but, be wise and serve them on an occasional basis, and your kids will feel full of tastey food and love.
Step 2: Combining Ingredients
Preheat oven to 350* prepare muffin tins/cups ahead of time
Combine Dry Ingredients
3 C. Muffin Master Mix (see below this recipe for Muffin Master Mix Recipe)
1 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Combine Wet Ingredients
1/2 C. canola oil
1/3 C. Water
1C. canned pumpkin (don't use pumpkin MIX)
1tsp vanilla extract
Later use: Nutella- about 4 Tbsp.
Step 3: Mixing the Ingredients
I prefer to combine my dry ingredients and my liquids in separate bowls.
Then I add the dry to the liquid, so that I don't get any dry spots, and I find that I get better distribution of the liquids into the solids.
Fill your prepared muffin cups or tins about 2/3 full of the batter.
Step 4: The Nutulla Touch
Take about 1tsp Nutella on the tip of a knife insert into the middle of each filled muffin cup and then swirl the Nutella into the batter.
Place into the 350* oven for 15 minutes and............
Step 5: Your Beautiful Results
You will find when you remove the muffins from the oven, that these are beautiful, moist and AMAZINGLY flavorful!
