Strawberry Nutella Muffins

Jump to Recipe

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!

  1. This is the first website I’ve ever commented on and these are the first cupcakes I have ever managed to get round to making and I just want to say that these are fantastic! A perfect balance of fruitiness and chocolate in a muffin. My flatmates love them, and they’re so easy to make. To anyone reading I thoroughly recommend these!

  2. Hi, I just made these. They smell great. I haven’t tried them because they are cooling. My batter was REALLY dry. Is that normal? It was hard to shape the top nicely like yours. Is there a trick? love your blog!


  3. I didn’t want to risk the Nutella explosion with the toddler so I subbed chocolate chips and they are delicious! Planning on making again soon with the Nutella for the husband and I – thank you! 🙂

  4. The canola oil in this recipe ruined it!!!!! All I can taste was the oil! When i substituted for butter oh my god were they heavenly!

  5. I made this recepie twice and somehow it does not turn out good.
    There’s a strong salty taste. Maybe I could do without the buttermilk?
    What could be causing the salty taste?

  6. I made them and let’s just say there is no where nearly enough liquid in this recipe and it’s kinda bland for the batter would recommend that this recipe be revised and duplicated for mountain range areas

  7. 5 stars
