A soft and moist peanut butter muffin with swirls of Nutella.  Peanut Butter Nutella Muffins are what muffin heaven looks like!

A soft and moist peanut butter muffin with swirls of Nutella. Peanut Butter Nutella Muffins are what muffin heaven looks like!

Oh yeah. You know you are drooling. Peanut butter muffins with Nutella swirled throughout. It is like heaven in your mouth. Can this seriously be a breakfast? They are so incredibly good straight from the oven. Make them when you have a few people home, preferably a number divisible by 12 so there isn’t any fighting, and watch them disappear. It’s like magic.

Cooking Lesson: It can be a pain to measure sticky ingredients like peanut butter. A handy trick is to first spray the measuring cup with nonstick spray, that way your sticky ingredient is less likely so stick and will slide out much easier.

  • Nut Options:

    We know peanut allergies are common. If you are looking for a non-peanut substitute, just replace with your favorite nut or seed butter.
  • Buttermilk Substitute:

    No buttermilk? No problem! Make your own buttermilk substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. You can half or double this recipe as needed and use it in any recipe buttermilk is called for! For this recipe you’ll want to use 3/4 of a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice for your 3/4 cup of milk.
  • Can peanut butter Nutella muffins be made dairy free?

    Absolutely! You can make your own buttermilk substitute with soy or almond milk, and replace the greek yogurt with your preferred full fat plain plant based yogurt.

These were oh so yummy. Can I comment that another way to solve the problem of sticky ingredients is to specify them in weight not volume. It is more also way more accurate

Can I use light cream instead of the buttermilk? That's the only thing I'm missing and I really don't wanna go to the supermarket again just for that 🙁

Instead of buttermilk you can substitute regular milk plain, or create your own buttermilk by adding a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of milk and letting it sit for 5 minute. I would not recommend substituting light cream. It is too heavy for a muffin.

Fantastic recipe! Used wholemeal flour & soured milk (as didnt have any buttermilk) and turned out just as awesome. I need to make another batch, stat!

RUN! RUN WHILE YOU CAN! OH THE HUMANITY! I killed this recipe nearly every way possible (ie half whole wheat, using 1 c. milk + white vinegar, no yogurt, etc.) and I STILL NEARLY ATE THE WHOLE DANGED BATCH! Seriously, if I didn't ruin these, nobody can. 7 alien thumbs up…or in other words, out of this world. One tip, don't be afraid to use AT LEAST a TBS of Nutella per muffin and SWIRL it really, really good. It'll pay off. Great goodness…I don't know to thank you or…I don't know…I'll just be wallowing in my gorged state over… Read more »

I followed the recipe exact, only using "soured" milk instead of buttermilk. Baked at 350*, these muffins were done at exactly 20 minutes. Muffin perfection–the family RAVED about these. Excellent recipe!

If you like peanut butter and chocolate, these are yum. Also try putting a small reses bite in the center of each. Oh my goodness. delicious!!
