Moist and tender chocolate muffins with an oozing Nutella centre, and studded with chocolate chips!

I have the perfect muffin for chocolate lovers right here. Chocolate muffins with a moist crumb, are full of chocolate chips, and have a dreamy, oozing Nutella centre… Who can resist? Certainly not me!

I LOVE Nutella. It’s always on my shopping list, and I use it all the time – baking or not. I love Nutella on toast, sandwiches, in porridge, on a spoon… 😉 But most of all, I do love using spreads in my recipes. For example, these chocolate muffins with their Nutella centres.

For these muffins, I’m using my favourite muffin recipe base. It is my go-to for muffins, and bread. The 2 teaspoons of baking powder makes these rise beautifully, but not too much. The buttermilk, and oil makes the batter so silky, and the muffins super moist, and tender. These are undoubtedly my favourite chocolate muffins!
