Nutella and Banana bread? I was a bit skeptical, but oh my goodness — this is amazing!  This simple quick recipe takes only a few minutes to whip together and makes amazing gifts for friends and family.


Nutella Banana Bread

Every year for the past six years, a group of friends of mine has gotten together for a cookie exchange in early December.  I usually bring a sweet treat. Last year I made some chocolate dipped pretzels but this year I packaged up some Slow Cooker Chex Mix for something different.

One of my friends, Kim, always brings mini-loaves of banana bread (<– that's her recipe!).   She makes the best banana bread!  This year she told she was going to bring Nutella Banana Bread.  I pretty much dismissed the idea because it just didn't sound good to me. I like Nutella and I like banana bread, but together?  No thanks!  Then Kim texted me that this was the best banana bread she'd ever made.  I still had my doubts … until I tasted the Nutella Banana Bread.

This bread is heaven.  Pure deliciousness.  You can make one large loaf or bake in to mini-loaves.    Kim baked these into small loaf pans from Michaels and then packaged them up with plastic bags and ribbon for a beautiful little gift.

Nutella Banana Bread


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • About 3/4 heaping cup Nutella


  1. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and use a whisk to thoroughly combine.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating completely.
  4. Add bananas, vanilla and milk to the mixer bowl and beat until well mixed.
  5. Add flour mixture and mix just until incorporated.
  6. Scoop out around 3/4 cup Nutella into a small pan. You don't have to be exact with the measurement. Heat over low heat on the stove. Remove to a small bowl.
  7. Add 1 cup banana bread mixture to the Nutella and stir to mix.
  8. Prepare one large loaf pan or four mini-loaf pans by greasing well.
  9. Fill loaf pans by alternating banana bread mixture with Nutella mixture.
  10. Use a knife to swirl the batters together.
  11. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes for a large loaf, less for mini-loaves.
  12. Let the loaves cool for about 15 minutes before removing from loaf pans, if you are removing them.
