Anyone else have a lot of memories eating Nutella as a child?  I do!  And I’m so excited about this “healthier” gluten free recipe for Nutella muffins. With healthier swaps, such as almond milk, coconut oil, gluten free flour, and maple syrup instead of sugar, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

I had such a great time making this recipe last weekend. My best friend and I made it up while rummaging in our cabinets to see what ingredients we had that would cure a sweet tooth.

There’s something so awesome about making up a recipe from scratch and having it turn out perfectly delicious.  These muffins are chocolatey, tender on the inside, naturally sweetened, fluffy, and totally drool-worthy.
