It is strawberry season! And I am in love…with strawberries that is. I have been stopping by the fruit stand around the corner as often as possible to purchase strawberries in ungodly amounts. Mainly because my husband loves them but also because I love finding new things to create with them.

I recently just found myself with a huge flat over strawberries and that led me to all kinds of experimenting. It started out innocently with a healthy strawberry salad with some killer strawberry balsamic vinaigrette but my sweet tooth kicked in. My sweet tooth always kicks in. This unfortunately is not new news nor is it good news for me. BUT it is good news for you because today I am here to offer you some very yummy Strawberry Nutella Muffins. Have you tried strawberry and nutella before? It’s basically sinful.

If you have been living under a rock and don’t know what nutella is, let me enlighten you. Nutella is a creamy chocolate hazelnut spread that originated in Italy. Luckily the Italians decided to be generous and share this creamy goodness with the rest of the world and it is now widely distributed in the United States. So, all that is to say you need to get yourself a jar of this stuff asap…and you’ll need a spoon. Get a BIG spoon.

These muffins are big ol’ bakery style muffins with juicy strawberry chunks and nutella swirls running through the middle. I used cake flour in these muffins to make them extra moist and a heaping cup of greek yogurt because somewhere in my twisted mind that makes these justifiably healthy.

Ah, yes there is just one thing left. An oatmeal streusel topping. My obnoxious inner child just couldn’t resist. And thus I just had to sprinkle on a nice crumbly streusel to make this whole muffin extra indulgent.It’s the bee’s knees folks. You gotta try em’!

    I just bought a big flat of strawberries from my fruit market yesterday! They are just beautiful. Glad I have plenty so I can make these muffins. I love that you added nutella. And that oatmeal crumb topping is perfect!

    These muffins sound perfect, Mariah! I was actually going to make a similar kind of nutella muffin this weekend, but ended up going the peanut butter route instead. I love the streusel topping, too! Sounds so delicious! Pinned!

    Strawberry season doesn’t start in CT until around June, but I love being able to pick-your-own at the farm. Last year was the first time I picked my own strawberries and their flavors were amazing. At the grocery store, the strawberries have been pretty flavorful lately, so I am VERY tempted to make these muffins. If nutella and streusel doesn’t win people over…I don’t know what will.

      I always have such a hard time with the strawberries at the grocery store…they seem to mold so quickly so I stick to the farm stand ones! I have never picked my own though. That sounds so fun!
