Ingredients:
Nutella Mixture:
    • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened 
    • 1/3 cup Nutella
    • 1 egg

    Muffins:

    • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 cup pumpkin puree
    • 4 oz. unsweetened applesauce
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil 
Directions:
1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat cream cheese, Nutella and egg together until smooth. Set aside.
2. Preheat the oven to 375. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking sofa, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs together, then whisk in sugar, pumpkin puree, applesauce and vegetable oil until smooth.
5. Slowly whisk the flour mixture into the wet mixture until combined and no lumps remain.
6. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin mixture into each muffin liner. Top with 1 tablespoon of the Nutella mixture and then add another tablespoon of the pumpkin mixture on top. Use a toothpick to swirl ingredients together.

The original name of this recipe is "nutella cheesecake pumpkin muffins" but I felt that was a bit misleading so I changed it. The pumpkin and nutella flavors are mild enough that you can hardly distinguish them in the muffin and there is definitely no cheesecake portion. Its just a moist tasty muffin, but definitely not what you would think of when you hear "nutella cheesecake pumpkin muffin".
