Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins.

I may or may not be spoiling you with breakfast recipes this week.  Take a peek at my Mini (no yeast) Cake Batter Cinnamon Buns and Strawberry Frosted Donuts if you missed them. :)

When I was little, my mom (hi mom!) would buy the variety pack of Entenmann’s Donuts for my sisters and I.  The variety packs included chocolate frosted donuts, powdered donuts, and cinnamon-sugar donuts.  I went completely bonkers for the cinnamon-sugar kind.  I may or may not have hoarded them, but that’s neither here nor there…

And to be honest, the combination of cinnamon and sugar has remained a favorite of mine for years.  A sprinkle of cinnamon + sugar on my rye toast, an unbaked snickerdoodle cookie taking a generous roll into a cinnamon-sugar pool, and of course, the said Entenmann’s cinnamon-sugar donuts.  The light spice of cinnamon and the sweet dash of sugar is a simple way to bring back many fond childhood memories!

Nutella Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Today I’m bringing you a wholesome recipe featuring the ultimate cinnamon-sugar duo.  But these guys have a secret delicacy hiding inside.  The sweet, fudgy-hazelnut love of my life: Nutella!  Adore.

This simple muffin recipe  bakes up 8 whole-wheat muffins tasting just like cake donuts.  The muffins are soft and very tall, using the tricks I shared in this post.  Be sure to read that post if you loathe flat, dry muffins like I do. The batter is lightly spiced with cinnamon & nutmeg and coated with melted butter and GENEROUSLY topped with a cinnamon-sugar mixture.  They are stuffed with burst of Nutella and taste completely sinful warm out of the oven.

Reasons why I love these muffins:

(1) they taste like my beloved Entenmann’s cinnamon-sugar donuts. WIN.
(2) They are SO easy & quick to make – the batter is mixed up in only 1 bowl!
(3) The recipe only yields 8, so I’m not stuck eating leftover muffins for days on end… which actually wouldn’t be so bad, would it?!
(4) It’s fun to overlook the melted butter on top and pretend these are healthy. 😉

Paired with a warm cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk, these muffins bring back memories of my favorite cinnamon-sugar donuts from when I was a youngster.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
