Chocolate Nutella Muffins

I adapted these from a recipe on I saw this awesome recipe on the site, but I decided to make a few changes…

First, I saw I didn’t have any self-rising flour, so I made my own. Then, I decided I was going to use whole-wheat flour as well as all-purpose flour just to make it a bit healthier. Next, I had to convert the rest of the ingredients in the recipe from metric to standard measuring. Finally, I changed the original recipe’s calling for butter to vegetable oil.

The result is a yummy, moist, and flavorful chocolate muffin!



Oven Temperature: 400˚F

Baking Time: 10 minutes

Makes: 12-14 muffins



1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

a little over 1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cocoa powder

a little under 4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup light brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup milk

2 eggs

Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread for the filling)



First, preheat your oven to 400˚F.

Then, get out a medium-sized bowl. Mix both types of flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking powder, and both types of sugar in the bowl.

Now, set that aside and grab a smaller bowl. Whisk together the oil, milk, and eggs inside the smaller bowl until the liquid becomes one even tone.

Take the liquid mixture and pour it into the flour mixture. Use a spoon to combine. Don’t worry if the mixture is lumpy. All you need to do is make sure there are big pockets of flour in the batter.

Now, get out your medium-sized muffin pan and line it with paper muffin liners.

Take a spoonful of batter and scoop it into one of the liners. The liner should be about 1/3 of the way full. Then, take a heaping teaspoon of Nutella (or any other chocolate hazelnut spread) and scoop it into the middle of the batter. Now, drop half a spoon full of batter on top of the Nutella. This does not seem like enough batter, but these muffins rise a lot so it will be fine. Repeat the process with the rest of the batter and the Nutella.

When that is done, pop these muffins in the oven for 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Now your muffins are done and you can enjoy!

Happy eating. 🙂
