1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup Pumpkin

2. Add all dry ingredients to bowl and mix well.
3. Spray the muffin tin or add muffin liners and divid dough (we usually get 11 muffins).
4. Take a baby spoon and add a dollop of Nutella to the top of each muffin. Then take a toothpick and swirl the Nutella into the muffin dough.
