These Nutella Apple Cupcakes have the goodness of whole wheat flour and apples and the deliciousness of Nutella! What more can you ask for?
I am calling these nutella apple cupcakes as vanishing cupcakes. And if you are wondering why, here is the reason 🙂 Yesterday, my sister in law’s kids were at my home and predictably came and said auntie please bake something for us. I decided to bake these nutella apple cupcakes.
I made 18 of them and left them for cooling. When I came back after 30 mins and I saw only 10 of them left. I packed away one each for their snack boxes in the morning. Then again when I saw after an hour, there were only four left!!! I was pretty astonished and went ‘What? These are vanishing cupcakes :)’
These nutella apple cupcakes are low in fat and are filled with whole wheat flour which makes them healthy too.
I love baking this kind of cupcakes and muffins, which are healthy. Replacing the all purpose flour (maida) even by 50% with whole wheat flour means that you are making the food healthier. Add to that some fruits, and you can definitely make these for kids without worrying about it too much. Whether its savory muffins like the zucchini, corn and smoked cheese muffins, or sweet ones like the apple carrot and walnut ones, it is always a hit among kids. I personally believe these healthy muffins and cupcakes are just right for lunchboxes because I know they will definitely be appreciated and enjoyed. And what more does a parent want than have their kids savor the taste of the food they are eating!
So make a batch of these amazing nutella apple cupcakes and you can see them vanish away in no time, just like I did 🙂

Hi Monika, Lovely cupcakes – May be it’s my comp screen, but one suggestion I have for you is perhaps you can use a white plate or surface to take your picture – to show a little contrast ans have the cake stand out some more
– I have a couple of events running in my blog that you might want to participate in –
gosh!! they look absolutely delicious Monu!! 🙂 🙂
Funny how cupcakes disappear as soon as they are out of the oven. Temperature doesn’t seem to affect these when kids want to eat them. Nice one.
I am rolling in laughter.Some times it happens.
Lovely cake and wise idea of using nutella.
I a sure kids loved it!
yummy cup cakes…..just want to grab one of them…lovely pic…
I’m a big fan of nutella so this one is for me 🙂 Last click looks yummy with nutella topping

Thank you so much for the kind words about my blog, Monica! =) Also, I’m really impressed that kids ate up wholewheat muffins. I’ve not baked too much with wholewheat, thinking that they might be a tad dense, but this is encouraging. Also, interesting how you used apples in them – they’re super for cutting down on butter. Okay, so I just scrolled back up to double check – and NO butter? WOW! Mighty impressive.
WOW !!! Brilliantly simple yet delicious recipe…finished writing it down….to bake it by this weekend. 🙂 Awesome. 🙂
the cupcakes look yum!! the nutella glaze looks good!
