We eat ridiculous amounts of Nutella in our home, and when I say “we” I mean my adorable 7 year old daughter who could sustain herself on nothing else if we let her – she’s the one on the left, she’s a very adorable Nutella addict, but an addict none the less. I don’t make loads of Nutella recipes because it’s expensive stuff and I buy enough as it is, but this Nutella Swirl Banana Bread turned my head because, duh – bananas! And I’ve seen a few versions of it, but I liked the way sweetest menu did the swirl on the top and put chocolate chips throughout. It was a total dessert bread that was here and gone in a day, everyone loved it! I’m sure you will too. -CK 2.0
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 large overripe bananas
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup Nutella
- Preheat oven to 350. Grease and line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk together to combine.
- Mash bananas with a fork or I use this Pampered Chef Mix and Masher every day and I love it. Set bananas aside. In a separate bowl, add the oil, egg, vanilla, and greek yogurt. Whisk to combine. Then, add your wet mixture, along with your mashed banana, into your dry mixture and gently fold to combine. Add chocolate chips and fold in.
- Warm the Nutella in the microwave for 10-15 seconds then add 1/4 of the Nutella into your banana mixture. Fold gently so you can keep your pretty swirls. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Add the rest of your Nutella on top and swirl it with a knife into a pretty pattern.
- Bake for 30 minutes then tent your bread with foil so it doesn’t burn on top. Bake another 10-15 minutes until a knife in the center comes out clean (minus a bit of Nutella). Remove from oven and leave to cool a solid 10 minutes before removing bread from the pan to cool on a rack completely.
