Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Moist banana bread swirled with everyone’s favorite Nutella spread. I can’t think of a better way to start the day!

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

Confession: I overbuy bananas on purpose. Ha! They’re so cheap and the options are endless with overripe bananas. We each eat 1-2 bananas a day and I probably make banana bread, banana pancakes, banana ice cream, or banana muffins a few times each week. We buy A LOT of bananas, y’all!

This loaf of love was born one morning when I had 4 overripe bananas sitting on the kitchen counter screaming to be saved. And saved they were…in the most scrumptious of ways! 😉

I decided to make our favorite Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread, but instead of swirling it with cinnamon sugar like I so often do, I swirled it with Nutella! Can I get an Amen?!

Just look at those swirls of sweet chocolate hazelnut spread throughout the moistest of banana breads. The combo is crazy delicious!

We gobbled this loaf up in a matter of days and we’ve all be anxiously waiting for 4 more bananas to go “bad” so I can bake it again. Amen!

So buy some extra bananas and beg them to go ripe real quick so you can bake this bread! Enjoy!

Moist banana bread swirled with everyone's favorite Nutella spread. I can't think of a better way to start the day!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 overripe bananas, mashed (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • half of a ripe banana, for garnishing
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, melt the butter and let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar then the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour and baking soda. Fold in the mashed bananas until just combined.
  3. Spread ¼ of the bread batter evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Dollop ¼ cup of Nutella over the batter in the pan and then make a nice thick swirl through the batter with a table knife or bottom of a wooden spoon. Place ⅓ of the remaining batter evenly over the first layer and swirl with ¼ cup of the remaining Nutella. Place ½ of the remaining batter evenly over the second layer and swirl with ¼ cup of the remaining Nutella. Spread the remaining batter evenly over the top and dollop with the remaining ¼ cup Nutella. Make large swirls throughout the entire loaf.
  4. Slice half of a banana into little chunks and place them over the swirled batter, if desired.
  5. Place loaf pan on a baking sheet and bake for 60-70 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

    This is wonderful. Thanks so much for this recipe – my boyfriend LOVES it, and now I’m popular among his co-workers :D. One question about the Nutella though – because the consistency is so dense it was really hard to swirl it nicely/evenly with the thinner batter. How would you go about making it easier to swirl about? Maybe heating it up a little bit first?

      Hi Alana! That’s so great to hear! Yes, you could definitely heat the Nutella for about 10 seconds in the microwave to thin it out a bit and make it easier to swirl. You don’t want it too melty or it will just melt throughout the batter when you try to swirl it. Also, make sure you stir the Nutella really well in the jar before using it. Hope this helps. Enjoy!
