Nutella-Filled Pumpkin Spice Muffins Follow Me on Pinterest I’ve been waiting patiently for September to arrive so that I could start baking with pumpkin. So, a couple days ago I opened one of the jumbo cans of pumpkin that I’d been saving and went a little crazy. Over the next two days, I made pumpkin cookies, cake, donuts, bread, and these Nutella-Filled Pumpkin Spice Muffins.

These moist, over-sized pumpkin spice muffins are filled with a generous dollop of  Nutella. After they’re baked, they’re brushed with a little melted butter, and then they’re topped with a sugar-and-spice mixture. So, they have two of my favorite flavor combos – pumpkin and chocolate and pumpkin and spice – all in one, delicious muffin.
