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.
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!
