Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

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!

    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!

    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.

    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 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 ;)
