Nutella Hazelnut Muffins

Hey guys! A Nutella Hazelnut Muffin recipe for you today! A very simple muffin base loaded with all things chocolate Hazelnut! That Ozzy Nutella centre is just something else!

A quick and easy recipe you will adore!! I love a muffin recipe as it takes a few minutes to put together, throw it in the oven, leave to cool slightly and enjoy! Moist and full of flavour.

Feel free to half or double this chocolate muffin recipe depending on how many you want to make. This recipe makes 10 large muffins. If you don’t have the Tulip muffin cases you can still use any other large case. If you are using slightly smaller cases you can separate the muffin batter into 12 cases and reduce the cooking time by a few minutes.
