Nutella-Filled Pumpkin Spice Muffins are moist buttermilk pumpkin spice muffins filled with a generous dollop of Nutella.
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 pumpkin spice muffins are filled with a generous dollop of Nutella. So, they have two of my favorite flavor combos – pumpkin and chocolate and pumpkin and spice – all in one, delicious muffin.
