Skinny Nutella and Walnut breakfast muffins

Skinny Nutella and Walnut breakfast muffins anyone? I love Nutella, however, I don’t consume it as much as I would want. Once in a while is OK though.

I have just made these skinny Nutella and Walnut breakfast muffins the other day and lasted just that day. The minute they came out of the oven I ate three myself, not good but I couldn’t resist. Granted they may not look too good because my nutella was kind of hard and it sank to the bottom in some of the muffins. Nevertheless, they were still really good. My husband actually said they were the best muffins I have made in a while so I guess he was right?

The recipe came from my cranberry breakfast muffin recipe that I made a while back. These are also very good as you can use any type of dry or fresh fruit you may like. Blueberries will work really good so maybe I will do these next.

I am not a very big breakfast muffin person, but because they are so convenient, and they work really good on the go, I tend to make them sometimes. I think I am going to make some bran breakfast muffins next. I have had these on my list for some time now so I will try to tackle them shortly. I know my husband will be thrilled, because him on the other hand, loves muffins for breakfast. Especially with his coffee, which I don’t drink.

These ones don’t have much sugar in them. Most of it comes from the bananas however you can add more Nutella if you like.

On another note. Have you checked out my new e-books I released a few weeks ago? Here is the link if you haven’t.

Make sure you swirl the nutella, I didn’t and mine sank to the bottom. They were still good but they would have looked better if I actually swirled the nutella before baking them :-)

Skinny Nutella and Walnut breakfast muffins

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 11 muffins

Total Time: 40 minutes



Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line muffin pan with muffin paper cups.

In a mixing bowl combine bananas, milk, oil, sugar and egg. Add the dry ingredients, flour, flax seed meal and baking powder and whisk until well incorporated.

Fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way. Spoon about 1 tsp of nutella over each muffin and swirl around. Place chopped walnuts evenly through the top of each muffin.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Remove muffins from the baking pan immediately after they are done. Let them cool on a wire rack and store in an air tight container for up to two days. You can also freeze these and have for future consumption.

  2. I love nutella! These muffins look delish. I love how you you made it healthy. =) Gracias!

  3. Baking powder is missing….

  4. Oops, it’s not. Sorry!

  5. Look and sound delicious. Good for an afternoon snack. I’m going to make these for my grand kids and road trip in July.

  6. These look delicious! And healthy too–woo woo!

  7. Looks so yummy.. love nutella and walnuts, never tried them together.

  8. Oooh. I love the sound of these! You can just go put Nutella in anything and I’ll be completely satisfied with whatever you give me. :)

    And I love breakfast muffins! I really should make more.

    And everyone needs to buy the e-book! Go, go, go! :D

  9. Another excellent recipe, thanks Miryam you are a star!

  10. Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and
    I am inspired! Extremely helpful information particularly the final section :) I handle such
    information a lot. I used to be seeking this particular info for a long
    time. Thanks and good luck.

  11. I think that what you published was actually very logical.

    However, what about this? what if you were to create a killer post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., however what if you added a headline to maybe get people’s attention?
    I mean Eat Good 4 Life

  12. I am truly happy to read this website posts which contains plenty of valuable information, thanks
    for providing these information.

  13. I made these muffins today, so delicious! 

    • That is awesome. I am glad you liked them :-)

    • Quick question about the nutrition information: what is the serving size: one muffin? I hope it’s two, because you can’t eat just one. And 223 calories per one muffin seems to be too much, given how healthy all ingredients are.

    • Yes it is per muffin. I guess it is the olive oil and nutella but if you don’t eat 2-3 every day you should be OK. Indulging is part of life and these muffins are pretty healthy anyways…Thanks for stopping by!
