Nutella Swirled Banana Bread
If you like regular banana bread, you will love this Nutella swirled banana bread! This is my first time ever baking with Nutella, and I think it’s safe to say I’m hooked. 🙂 I love traditional banana bread (and I’ve got a few great recipes on the blog), but there’s something about this Nutella swirled version that really stands out. It’s so moist and tender, and the recipe is actually really easy. It’s just a standard banana bread recipe with Nutella swirled into half the batter. The flavors are so perfect together – you can’t go wrong with bananas and Nutella, right? I hope you try this one – Mike claims it’s “way better” than traditional banana bread. Enjoy!
Nutella Swirled Banana Bread
Yield: 1 loaf
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 15 min
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 large bananas)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Nutella
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch loaf pan and set aside.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the banana and, then beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Divide 1/2 of of the batter into a separate bowl and stir in the Nutella.
Alternate spoonfuls of regular batter and Nutella batter into the prepared loaf pan. Swirl batter gently with a knife. Bake 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into bread comes out with moist crumbs attached. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack. Let cool completely before slicing.

Oh megan this looks incredible. I’m such a sucker for Nutella 🙂
Nutella and bananas,man.Such a good combo!
When bananas and nutella make babies they are alwaaaays tasty!! Yum!
mmmm! this reminds me of my peanut butter banana nutella swirled bread. 🙂 I love the flavors together. Bananas and nutella are meant to be!
Banana bread is the best. Love the nutella swirled in there. I have to give this one a try!
If it has Nutella in it, chances are I am going to love it! This bread looks so perfect with the swirl in there!
I have never baked with Nutella either. I usually just eat it right out of the jar! I will try this banana bread next time I need to use up my bananas.
I always wanted to try Nutella in a banana bread but was always afraid it would sink to the bottom. Yours looks like it was a success so I’ll have to try!
Love the big swirl of nutella!
mmm, fancy banana bread is always welcome! love the nutella addition!
Great recipe – bread is in the oven as I type! The instructions left out the vanilla, but assumed it was added after the sugars and butter were creamed. I know this is going to taste wonderful! I make most breads following the recipe the first time, but then substitute applesauce for the oil/butter. It saves a lot of calories (for those of us who count them) and always tastes great! Thanks for the recipe.
I really enjoy your blog;thanks for the wonderful information
I made your recipe , loved it the kids and my hubby 2
Thanks for sharing
I swear I make banana bread like every other week but this is one recipe I haven’t tried. I will have to fix that : ) Looks amazing!
Does the bread freeze well? Love your blog!!!
Yes, it freezes wonderfully 🙂
This is soooo good! Not too sweet and everyone at the office loved the extra loaf I brought it. Do note, the vanilla extract needs to be added with the eggs…..it is not listed on the instructions. I pinned this recipe…….Thanks Megan!!!
I’m so glad you liked it! And thanks for the tip about the vanilla, I’m glad you caught that!
I love Nutella and banana bread. I have 4 bananas ready to go right now! Can I substitute applesauce for butter? If so how much?

i hope i could eat this too.. i’m getting bored in our ordinary loaf bread.
My son made this and immediately told me to get the recipe absolutely delicious!!
So glad you liked it! 🙂
I don’t know what I did wrong. When it came out of the oven it looked so perfect & as it was cooling down the middle sank in
I have to say…AMAZING RECIPE! I go to an international boarding school but even across the world, one thing doesn’t change, teenagers’ obsession with Nutella. I made this after classes and it turned out great. The recipe explained everything perfectly and everyone was waiting for me to take the loaf out of the oven. Being at a boarding school, my measurements were not perfect but it was delicious (I’m pretty sure I forgot the salt!) Thanks for the recipe!! I’ll definitely come back for more Nutella filled goodness!
I made it and it was perfect! I also added walnuts which made it perfect-er! The only issue is that I over-used the nutella so it is more of a “nutella nut bread”
Super moist and melty in the mouth! Totally recommend!
So glad you liked it! And you can never “over-use” nutella 😉

I would suggest also warming the Nutella slightly (about 30 secs in the microwave) before adding to the batter. Have mini loaves in now: starting my holiday baking! ☺
Good suggestion! Hope the bread turned out well. 🙂
They were a-ma-zing!!! This is my new go-to recipe for banana-Nutella bread! yum!!
