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?!

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

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!


  • 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 11/2 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 1/4 of the bread batter evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Dollop 1/4 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 1/3 of the remaining batter evenly over the first layer and swirl with 1/4 cup of the remaining Nutella. Place 1/2 of the remaining batter evenly over the second layer and swirl with 1/4 cup of the remaining Nutella. Spread the remaining batter evenly over the top and dollop with the remaining 1/4 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.

    1. Hi Megan! I haven’t tested the recipe with any other sweeteners so I couldn’t say for sure how it would bake up. It’s certainly worth a try if you’re using a sweetener that is a 1:1 substitute for granulated sugar. Enjoy!

  1. literally the most moist, most delicious thing I’ve ever put into my mouth. I’m not a great baker, but every time I make this it’s gone nearly instantly. My entire family love it, including my banana bread hating mother!

  2. Hi!
    Thank you for this recipe, it was amazing. I’m not usually a huge fan of banana bread and for whatever reason I was craving one and your recipe was perfect! I just switched up the Nutella with another hazelnut spread with less sugar and no palm oil, otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks again and I’m happy to have discovered your website 🙂

    1. Hi Melanie! Yes, almond flour would be a great substitute for the all-purpose flour in this quick bread recipe. Enjoy!

    2. Hi Melanie
      How’d it turn out?? I have almond flour too so curious to see if the recipe needs to be adjusted. Thanks!!

  3. Was feeling naughty as I made this and swirled in some peanut butter.. fingers crossed it’ll be delicious ????????

    1. Love it, Tanja! You can never go wrong with peanut butter. I bet it turned out amazing! Thanks for sharing and enjoy!
