Nutella Muffins

Nutella is one of Kevin’s all-time favourite spreads. We hardly ever have it in the cupboard, but when we do he gets through it in lightning speed – it truly feels as though it’s there one minute and entirely finished the next, I don’t know how he does it!

Lydia from Lydia Bakes made a gorgeous Nutella cake earlier this year that I knew Kevin would absolutely love, but I just didn’t have the time to get it done. Instead, I decided to make some unbelievably simple, Nutella-packed muffins as perfect for popping in lunchboxes as enjoying after dinner.

What makes these muffins extra special is that they’re made from just three ingredients. Three! How crazy is that? All you need is a medium sized jar of Nutella, some flour and a couple of eggs and you’re all set! It really couldn’t be any easier.

While the muffin batter doesn’t look anything like normal muffin mixture – it’s very thick – you wouldn’t know it from the finished muffins. They’re perfect! Fluffy and moist, with just the right amount of crunch – I’m sure you’ll absolutely love them.

To add a bit of interest (yes, that’s just an excuse…) I added a sprinkling of chocolate chips to the top of each muffin before baking. The result? Delicious! If chocolate’s not your thing, try sprinkling some chopped nuts on top instead – that would be equally wonderful.

Enjoy!
