making banana nutella swirl bread

Have some over-ripe bananas and want to do some baking?

If you’re a Nutella fan, try baking some delicious homemade banana bread with a swirl of gooey chocolate Nutella! This bread is simple to compile, comes out of the oven super soft and moist, and has the winning combination of bananas and hazelnut chocolate!

Hip Recipe Tips:ย 

    • This recipe makes two loaves of bread, so if you’re wanting to just make one loaf, simply use half of the ingredients, and continue with directions.
    • One cool tip I found on Pinterest that works for getting butter to room temperature quickly is to heat a glass cup and place it over the stick of butter. It works!
    • Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread is so delicious, and I love it with this bread. If there is a nut allergy in your family, you can omit and maybe stir chocolate chips into the batter before baking. You could also melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals and swirl it in the batter as shown as another option.
    • Don’t skip the step about greasing your loaf pans. Add a little flour and tap the pan around in all directions so it distributes the flour all around the inside. This will ensure no sticking.
    • I have made this bread using all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour – and both turn out yummy! I would imagine you could also opt to use your favorite gluten-free flour.
    • No eggs? For each egg, try mixing 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 2.5 tablespoons of water, and it will form an egg-like substance for baking. For more egg substitute ideas, check out this post on our sister site, Hip2Keto.

taking banana nutella bread out of the oven

Seriously…. this is so YUM!

What an incredible treat, and a yummy way to use up bananas that are getting too brown. I love how easy the process is to make quick breads like this. I also love that this is a fun baking activity to do with the kids. Doing the swirly part is especially exciting, and the results are beautiful and oh so tasty.

There’s something super comforting about baking, and this banana bread doesn’t disappoint!

    Humm, this sounds “interesting.” I’m not a huge fan of Nutella but do love banana bread (and chocolate). Waiting on a fellow Hipster to give me their 2 cents! I’m wondering too if I can simply use the Nutella as described for prep in my own recipe as I simply like mine better (it has sour cream in it and, oh, so good and moist.).

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya Iโ€™d say go for it – just swirl it in your recipe when pouring into loaf pans. ๐Ÿ‘

      • Lisa

        Thanks, Lina. Maybe I’ll half the Nutella and that’ll help with my aversion!

        • Julie

          Would you be willing to share your recipe Lisa?

    • Erin

      To be honest, the Nutella doesn’t really come through that well in the banana bread recipes I’ve tried (and I looove Nutella). Since you have an aversion to Nutella (and it’s not really great for you anyway), why not just use some dark chocolate? Use your favorite recipe and either swirl melted chocolate into the tops of the loaves or fill your loaf pans halfway, mix the melted chocolate into the remaining batter, and divide among your loaf pans, and bake.

    Game Changer!

  3. Taryn

    Remember the baking soda!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      whoops yep added to directions part – thanks!

      • Yasuko J

        I’m baking this bread now…I didn’t see when I would use the baking soda, and I quickly added to the batter before the Nutella addition. No worries. I cannot wait to taste this, thanks a bunch, Lina – Your recipes are awesome!!!

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          with step 3 – dry ingredients – Oh hooray! I’m so glad you’re baking it – enjoy!

  4. Java

    I did not have Nutella on hand. I added raisins and some cranberries. Even better, I added a spritz of cherry brandy. Rocked my world.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow that is so creative! Thanks for sharing Java ๐Ÿ‘

    I made it this past weekend…sooo good!!! I 1/2’d the ingredients and only made one just to test. I will be making 2 from now on. LOL I did have a problem. I’m not sure if there are different sizes of loaf pans but mine are glass just like the picture. I kept an eye on it while baking and it starting going over the edges of my loaf pan. Thank goodness I saw it before it made a mess in my oven. I just put a sheet pan under it to catch the over flow.

    • J

      Made some last night and have a messy oven to clean up! But totally with you one two loafs! I did one and today I realized I have a problem as well.. way to yummy to resist !

  6. Sylvia

    I made this and the entire family liked it, didn’t have problem with overflow

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Sylvia! Yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹
