Nutella should have its own food group. Who do I write to at the USDA to get that ball rolling? Should I start a petition? Let's just start with breakfast first, I guess. These 4-ingredient gluten-free Nutella muffins are a good way to begin the day. They contain only four simple ingredients and can easily be confused for brownies—my kind of breakfast!
These are the easiest gluten-free Nutella muffins
You honestly just mix together everything in a bowl in two minutes and it's ready to go!
Almond meal is something you should always keep on hand in your pantry. It's an easy and healthy alternative to flour if you are wanting to make more gluten-free baked goods. Also, almond flour is awesome. I just bought some in bulk at Costco for under $10.
These muffins also call for anthem gum. It helps give baked goods something to bind to when they don't have gluten (which is what traditionally binds together the compounds in your baked foods).
Can this just be Nutella week? My friend sent me a picture of a terrifyingly delicious Nutella donut milkshake, AKA diabetes in a jar. I lost my mind. The first words out of my mouth were, "I HAVE TO MAKE THIS, IMMEDIATELY!" I mean... You put the straw through the Nutella-filled donut sitting on top of a Nutella milkshake and drink your way to heaven. Literally and figuratively. I am pretty sure that thing would bring on a bonafide sugar coma, followed by a massive heart attack. Not a bad way to go, IMO. Think of the endless options for that epitaph... "She had one thing to Nutella us: It was worth it." (Puns would be included, naturally.)
Why am I talking about that milkshake still? This post is about these gluten free Nutella muffins! (Although I will be making that shake tomorrow, so expect the post to be up in a few days so you have time to make it at your own risk this weekend!)
These muffins are quick and easy to make, and perfect for an on-the-go meal or snack. You can even make a large batch and freeze them for later. Grab the recipe below and enjoy!
Gluten Free Nutella Muffins
- 2 cups Nutella
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1 teaspoon xantham gum
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Thoroughly mix the the Nutella and eggs with a whisk in a medium bowl. Add in the almond meal and xantham gum, and mix well.
- Grease a 12-count muffin tin. Fill each cup three-quarters full. Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes, or until the tops start to slightly crack. Pour yourself a big glass of milk and enjoy that chocolatey, hazelnut goodness!
