Pumpkin Pie Nutella Muffins

Makes 12 muffins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup approx. Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with liners.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  • In large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar.
  • Beat in egg, vegetable oil, milk, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly whisk in the flour mixture, until there are no lumps.
  • Add a dollop (about 1 tsp or so) of Nutella onto the bottom of each muffin liner and spread to cover the bottom.
  • Using a ice cream scoop or large spoon fill muffin tins to the top with pumpkin batter.
  • Top each muffin with about 1 tsp of Nutella and use a toothpick to swirl it into the top of the batter.
  • Bake muffins for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


*Recipe note:  the Nutella on the bottom of the muffin bakes and stays separated from the bottom of the muffin so it's a sweet treat at the bottom! If you would prefer it be mixed in, use a toothpick to swirl the Nutella on the bottom with the pumpkin batter.
