Strawberry Nutella Muffins

I am still on my strawberry kick. If we run out it it is a very sad day so we try to keep our refrigerator stocked with strawberries at all times. I used some of my precious strawberries to create Strawberry Nutella Muffins. Last year, I made Pumpkin Nutella Bread and fell in love, so I thought I would try adding Nutella to my strawberry muffins. These muffins are out of this world. There really are no words to describe their deliciousness.

Strawberry Nutella Muffins on Love the Nutella surprise inside!

Strawberries and Nutella are a match made in heaven. I may have dipped a few strawberries in the Nutella jar while making these muffins. I needed a pre-muffin snack. Don’t judge-I am pregnant:)

I chopped up fresh strawberries and gently folded them into my muffin batter. I filled half of the muffin cups with strawberry batter and then added a spoonful of Nutella. I covered the Nutella with the remaining batter and sprinkled the muffins with turbinado sugar.

I had a hard time taking photos of these muffins. I was too anxious to taste them. Finally, I unwrapped a muffin and took a big bite. Pure joy!  These strawberry Nutella muffins are almost too good to be true.

The muffins are tender with juicy strawberry pieces that are surrounded by rich Nutella. I also love the sugary muffin tops. They are pretty and add a nice sweet crunch.

So, should you make these muffins for breakfast or dessert? It’s up to you. I think they are good anytime of the day. Just promise me you will make these Strawberry Nutella Muffins. They are too good not to share!

Strawberry Nutella Muffins

Yield: Makes 9 muffins

Cook Time: 17-20 minutes

Strawberry Nutella muffins made with fresh strawberries and filled with Nutella. These muffins are great for breakfast or dessert.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup Nutella
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of muffins


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease well. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.

3. In a small bowl, combine canola oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla together. Use a fork or whisk and mix until well combined.

5. Incorporate the wet ingredients into flour mixture. Add slowly and gently stir, you don’t want to over mix. The batter will be thick. Carefully fold in the strawberries.

6. Fill each muffin cup half way with batter. Next, add a small spoonful of Nutella to each muffin cup. Cover the Nutella filling with the remaining batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.

7. Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack.

  7. Fantastic combination of two delectable foods! Organic ripe strawberries are just starting to show up in our Boston-area markets, so these muffins are definitely on my “to-make” list.

  8. I love that there is a huge layer of nutella just waiting to be bitten into in the middle :)

  13. wow. You’re right. These things are too good not to share. I gotta go hunt for strawberries this weekend and make them right away! Is it ok to decrease the sugar a little bit because of the nutella?

  14. Rita — May 16, 2011 @ 7:13 am

    They are just superb!!! Strawberry and Nutella are the perfect combo. I’ll be never thankful enough to Mr Ferrero for inventing Nutella. Thanks for this one, guys!

    Is there any fruit that nutellas don’t make taste better? I think you’d be hard put to find one. These look delicious!

  24. Katrina — May 16, 2011 @ 9:50 am

  30. Amber Carlson — May 16, 2011 @ 1:11 pm

    I made your pumpkin nutella bread- SO GOOD. I was actually getting on here to ask you for a good strawberry shortcake. I think this would be fabulous since Strawberries are in season and they have taken over my fridge. YUM! Thanks for sharing.

  31. I’d thought about putting Nutella in the middle of cupcakes but I was a bit worried that I would just get a big chocolatey mess – there are worse things in life I suppose 😉 I’ll definitely give it a try now!

  32. Kate@Diethood — May 16, 2011 @ 1:20 pm

    Yummy flavors for a muffin! OH this is such a delicious idea!
    When I was pregnant I ate a whole jar of Nutella – in one sitting! Now our baby girl is a Nutella-holic…we have to hide it from her. :)

  33. Maria, These look wonderful!

  34. Christina — May 16, 2011 @ 1:28 pm

    Amazing, amazing, amazing. I love strawberries too and hate when they run out. I am also a huge Nutella lover. Match made in heaven!

  35. Amy — May 16, 2011 @ 1:34 pm

    OMG! I just whipped up a batch of these for my girls and I. We all LOVED them and your description of them being “pure joy” was spot on!
    Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe.

      Thanks for letting us know! Glad you liked the muffins!

  36. Diva — May 16, 2011 @ 2:12 pm

    Nutella on anything is ok with me!!

  37. I always have a jar of Nutella in the pantry yet I don’t use it in my baking. I find myself standing at the counter just eating it by the spoonful. Oh, how much I love Nutella. I need to give it a chance to branch out!

  38. Vicki H. — May 16, 2011 @ 2:38 pm

    I was the same way when I was pregnant – couldn’t get enough strawberries – I would walk to the store and buy 2 containers so I could eat one on the way home!

    Love the combo of strawberry and nutella – mmmm, have to pick up more nutella!

  39. Kristen@PrettySweet — May 16, 2011 @ 2:58 pm

    Oh, wow! Those look incredibly delicious!!! Especially that last picture. One time I made up a strawberry Nutella tiramisu (well, minus the coffee) and I couldn’t believe it when my husband questioned if strawberries and Nutella would go together! Seriously?? Ha! He later admitted I was right. 😉 I’m pretty sure he’d be O.K. with these muffins, too. =)

    Maria, you are the strawberry QUEEN! I love the combination of nutella and berries!
