Flourless Nutella Pumpkin Muffins

These mini flourless Nutella muffins are so delicious! They are light, airy, and very chocolatey. One bowl, no mixer, ready in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Do you need any more convincing?

The magical number today is 7. Because it took me seven trials before I got these babies to come out right. All the failed ones tasted delicious- the texture just wasn’t right. It’s actually dangerous when the failed ones taste good. (Mmm..moist chocolate cake pudding.) It makes me stubbornly push on and it also means I end up eating all the failed ones. But I’m really happy I got this recipe to work.

These are some outrageously delicious Nutella muffins. You won’t taste the pumpkin. It’s there for texture. Also I highly recommend you use mini muffin/candy cup liners. The muffins are a little delicate and hard to remove without them.

I will definitely be making these again. Especially since I have so many cans of pumpkin puree in my house right now.


Mini Flourless Nutella Pumpkin Muffins


  • 2 tbsp unsweetened dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup Nutella spread



1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line mini muffin pan with liners (I highly recommend you use liners rather than trying to bake directly in the pan. Because the muffins are very delicate, they break down easily and are hard to remove if baked directly in the pan without liners).

2. Combine all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Mix with a whisk until batter is smooth.

3. Fill mini muffin molds 3/4 full. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and top of muffins are no longer wet. Baking time will vary based on how big your mini muffin liners are and how much batter they can hold.
