What better way to welcome autumn than with some scrumptious Nutella pumpkin muffins! These sweet, decadent muffins are made with creamy pumpkin puree and seasoned with a hint of pumpkin pie spice, and of course flavoured with creamy, nutty Nutella.
This toddler-friendly recipe is a variation of Pumpkin Spice Muffin Bites. It’s a little more indulgent but still relatively healthy since I substituted the butter with coconut oil (read more about my obsession with coconut oil HERE). In the original recipe I substituted the eggs with ground flax seed (my son was still under a year old when I created the recipe) so there is always that option if you prefer an egg-free version. These muffins were a hit! My husband (my biggest critic) isn’t fond of pumpkin-inspired recipes but since the pumpkin puree was combined with the Nutella (a childhood fave) he couldn’t resist…and neither could my son! Someone was scouring the kitchen floor for some batter that dripped off mama’s spoon!
I know they looked delicious, but I didn’t think they would be fighting over them! My son looks very determined…my bets are on him!
