Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Posted on March 15, 2015

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the last couple of days of winter before spring officially begins in just five days! But before the week begins, I have a banana bread recipe to share with you. And it’s not just any banana bread recipe, it’s a Nutella Swirled Banana Bread recipe! Because Nutella makes everything better, including banana bread! To tell you the truth, I try not to buy Nutella too often because it inevitably ends with giant late night spoonfuls of it… but every once in a while, I give into the craving and buy a jar! I used my favorite banana bread recipe that uses Greek yogurt for this, added dollops of Nutella on top, and created the swirls using a knife. I love banana bread as it is, but adding the Nutella swirls to it just makes it that extra little bit more delicious!

*Makes 1 loaf*

YOU WILL NEED
1 recipe banana bread (this is my favorite!)
A couple of spoonfuls of Nutella

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

DIRECTIONS

1. Follow the directions for making banana bread like you normally would (this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt is my absolute favorite recipe for banana bread! It always comes out super moist and stays fresh for days! I use it for this Nutella Swirled Banana Bread too, but I omit the chocolate chips – you can definitely keep them in the recipe for additional sweetness if you like – and I add chopped walnuts).

2. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F and grease your loaf tin (or line it with parchment paper). Pour your banana bread batter into your prepared loaf tin, then add a couple of spoonfuls of Nutella on top, distributing them over the whole loaf. Take a knife and gently create swirls in the batter. (Make sure the Nutella is at room temperature and is nice and spreadable!) Bake for about 50 minutes to an hour, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the baking tin for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

    I know what you mean about Nutella – it’s a bit dangerous to have around, but so tasty! I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds!

    That looks like some serious yumminess! I bet it would last about two minutes in my house! Going to have to try it! So glad you shared it with us at #FoodieFriDIY…pinning and sharing!

      Thanks, Michelle! It doesn’t last very long at our house either 😉 I blame the Nutella! Hope you had a good first spring weekend! 🙂

  • Reply Christine March 25, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    Nutella makes everything better! Agreed! And you forgot to say it saves time and dishes because you won’t have to spread it on the bread itself! Of course not needing to and not wanting to are completely different. ;-p
