Strawberry Nutella Muffins

What a sunny beautiful weekend!! The sun was out both Saturday and Sunday! Managed to do my lawn and clean the yard yesterday and washed some windows today. IMG_5435_edited-1 Went for a 7km run today and yesterday, my longest run ever, did a 11km run!! I was so happy that I managed to run more than my usual 7 km!! IMG_5510_edited-1
This morning, we went for a long walk in the Botanical Garden park - many photos to come! IMG_5436_edited-1 Also this morning, I baked these cute muffins - a mix of strawberries and nutella - should be delicious! (As I didn't have one yet!) IMG_5507_edited-1 This recipe makes only 9 muffins - don't know if that's bad or good ;) IMG_5508_edited-1

Strawberry Nutella Muffins
from twopeasandtheirpod
Makes 9 muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk (used low-fat milk and lemon juice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup Nutella
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of muffins

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease well. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
3. In a small bowl, combine canola oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla together. Use a fork or whisk and mix until well combined.
5. Incorporate the wet ingredients into flour mixture. Add slowly and gently stir, you don’t want to over mix. The batter will be thick. Carefully fold in the strawberries.
6. Fill each muffin cup half way with batter. Next, add a small spoonful of Nutella to each muffin cup. Cover the Nutella filling with the remaining batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.
7. Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack

Great for you on your run WTG. By now I am wondering if you tried the muffins and I would like to know how good they are. Because they look delicous.
