Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling

I have been trying to motivate myself to make something without chocolate! I must tell you, it’s very difficult :D. Even these Peanut butter muffins with oat streusel that I baked yesterday needed some last minute nutella filling and chocolate chips sprinkled on top!

My instagram feed is full of colorful fruity bakes for inspiration. I even bought plums and peaches to make something with them. But after few days of procrastination and not letting anyone eat them, we finally relished them the other day! I was actually relieved because now I wouldn’t have to feel guilty for not baking something with those pretty summer fruits.


Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling


I don’t mind eating these Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling even on a hot summer day!  They are incredibly soft, super easy and so delicious! They are so good that they make me forget my incapability of making something with fruits! Moreover, there is another problem of baking something sans chocolate. No one at home is going to eat it and I will have to send the entire thing across to friends and family. I don’t have a problem in sharing the desserts I bake. Infact, I love to spread  joy and love through my baked goodies. But only after Jyotika and Prateek have devoured some :D. Both my siblings are very picky eaters. They are very specific with their choice of desserts. They love anything chocolate, peanut butter, caramel and nutella. Strictly, no fruits :P. And so I usually, try incorporating one of their favorites in my baking.

These Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling were made with the same intention. The crumbly oat and chocolate chip streusel and the extra moist Peanut Butter Muffins are great on their own, but a little nutella surprise can never hurt anyone :).

These Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling are dangerously delicious, hot from the oven! The leftovers if any :D, can be refrigerated for a week. Just microwave the muffin for 20 seconds and they are as good as freshly baked. I usually bake them quickly on a sunday morning for an indulgent and comforting breakfast :).

Peanut Butter Muffins with Oat Streusel and Nutella Filling


    For the muffins
  • 1 ½ cups All purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 11/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Peanut butter
  • 2 small eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 10 teaspoons Nutella
  • For the streusel
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Oat flour
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips


  1. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Preheat oven to 200C degrees (400F).
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the streusel and set aside.
  3. Make the batter for the muffins. In a large bowl, sift the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the sugar with the eggs and the butters until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla essence and milk. Beat to a smooth consistency.  Now mix the dry ingredients in the creamed butter mixture. Don’t overmix. Just combine.
  4. Scoop some of the batter into the muffin tin. Drop a teaspoon of nutella and cover with the remaining batter until ¾ full. Sprinkle the streusel on top.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes at 200C(400F), and then reduce the temperature to 180C(350F) for 25-30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and after 5-10 minutes, transfer each muffin to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


I refrigerate the nutella jar for a few hours or overnight before making these, so that it’s easier to spoon in the nutella.

  1. I am also the fruit police around here – if I’ve got something planned for the fruit in the fridge I have to ban everyone from eating it!! I’m glad you went with this though – there can NEVER be too much chocolate or peanut butter in the world. I just LOVE Nutella too!!

    1. Haha!! I do the same with the baked goods too.. You can’t eat them until I have taken enough pictures😬! I am glad you approve of these muffins Katherine!! Thank you 😍😍! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Normally, during the summer I don’t open the oven more than few times (ice cream is the main dessert), but if I do, that will likely be a fruit/berry dessert. I don’t mind having this peanut butter muffin now, especially if you ship some:) Nutella and peanut butter sound like a great combo! Need to try this with dulce de leche instead:)

    1. Dulce-de-leche sounds like an amazing idea Ben!! I am glad you don’t mind the muffin in place of the berry desserts and ice cream😬!

  3. Haha! I also have a hard time considering something made with fruit a “dessert.” If there’s no chocolate, it seems more suitable as a breakfast food :). I say bake with all the chocolate you want! I’ll never get enough. I’m looooving these muffins, Deepika!

    1. Thank you for approving Kelsie💖💖!! Chocolate itself is another name for dessert! I am glad you like the muffins!!

  4. Deepika, if your family is not going to eat them, please please send us some over here!! We would LOVE to try them!! The pictures looks really delicious. I am back in Athens soon from holidays so maybe…? Have a great day!! 🙂 Marianthi, xo

    1. Thank you so much😍!! So happy to know, that you like these!! Have a lovely day ahead 😊🤗

  6. I hear you girl. Avoiding chocolate is the toughest thing for a chocolate lover. Absolutely loving that last minute Nutella filling — In my dictionary chocolate is a must in most of the desserts. Love the combination of oats and peanut butter, so I can tell I would love these.

    1. Totally Anu!! You have understood my chocoholic tendencies in the best manner😊! Thanks for loving these and making me feel so good about them!Much love😍😍

    1. Haha!! I agree Ashika!! We finished these muffins the same day I baked them😬😍

  7. MMM. a friend in high school used to bring peanut butter and nutella sandwiches all the time, and these muffins are bringing back those good memories (: and tbh, i’d rather eat fresh fruit than bake with it (it’s so good already!), so i feel you about not being able to bake with fruit.

    1. Thanks Heather😍 Peanut butter and nutella is my favorite combination! Love it in sandwiches, shakes and cakes!!

    1. Thank you Kim😍 I am glad I have so many chocolate lovers supporting me!! Have a great weekend lovely!

  8. I have no idea how I missed this post, but I’m so glad I found it, Deepika! It sounds incredible. I’ve never heard of peanut butter muffins, but I’m pretty sure they would be instant favorites in our house. And you are totally right…a little Nutella surprise never hurts! Haha! Glad to hear that your siblings loved these, too…I can see why! 🙂

    1. Thanks David!! I am sure, your wifey will approve of them too😬! They are so soft and fluffy! And perfect with the nutella centre😉!

  9. These sound soooo good Deepika! I’m definitely going to have to give them a go. I used to be completely addicted to the peanut butter and nutella combo but managed to put an end to that. I’m worried these could be the end of that resistance haha!

    1. Hehe!! I am wondering how you have been resisting this disastrous combo😬 They are so addictive together!! These muffins are the best way to celebrate the love for peanut butter and nutella😋! Thanks for stopping by lovely😍!!

  10. These look amazing Deepika! I’m the same way about chocolate, it better be good if it doesn’t contain any right? haha Of course I love making all the fruit pies etc but chocolate usually is my top pick when I’m eating the pie, not just baking for others. And your chocolate creations are all mouthwatering, I would happily eat them all! haha But these sounds amazing, I love peanut butter and the nutella is an awesome addition. If I make these I might not even miss the chocolate (haha) but at the same time I might be tempted to throw some chocolate chips in just because I’m wild and crazy 😀 Chocolate lovers unite!!! 😘😘

    1. Yayyyy!! I am so happy to find my chocoholic tribe😬! I love your berry pies Dana😍! They are out of the world! The lattice is so creative everytime!! I don’t miss chocolate in them, but these muffins definitely needed some extra chocolate! Thanks for stopping by lovely💗
