Nutella Banana Bread: super moist banana bread with thick swirls of Nutella baked in! This recipe is a keeper!

I may have mentioned this once or twice, but I love Nutella. And banana bread. And pretty much anything that goes well with a hot cup of coffee.

Baking up this bread is so easy, and I think you will LOVE that it makes two loaves. One to enjoy now. One to enjoy later (it freezes well!). Or give a loaf to friend. Or family member. Or teacher.

Speaking of teachers, I should probably send in a loaf to my 5th graders teacher ASAP. Our new house is across the way from the school, and while I sit on my back deck enjoying a cup of coffee and slice of this bread I can hear the kids at recess. Yelling, screaming, laughing. And I know my child is in the mix…yelling, screaming, laughing. Hopefully burning off some of the excess sugar from the lunch I packed.

Actually, I don’t pack my kids lunches. Cause that’s what good moms do. Or moms with time on their hands in the morning. Nope not me. I set the guidelines (main course, fruit or veggie, snack, treat, drink) and they pack their own lunches. For the most part they are pretty good at it. Occasionally I have to intervene and remove certain items.

I definitely don’t make those cute little Bento boxes you see on pinterest. The ones with all healthy foods. Cut into cute shapes. Yeah. No. My kids would need about 3 boxes a piece to fill up on, no joke…they eat a lot! Plus, seriously, do you make those the night before? Cause I have zero time in the morning to cut cucumbers into turtle shapes.

But they do get to enjoy slices of Nutella Banana Bread in their lunch. I tend to count it as the “treat” of a lunch…but my oldest daughter tends to think it’s a main course (I secretly like the way she thinks, don’t tell her though)! I guess she has watched too many Nutella commercials. And duh, bananas! Oh well. Whichever category you decide this bread falls into, enjoy eating it!

I’m sharing this recipe over at Food Fanatic today. Normally I’m the candy contributor, but they allow me make real food too sometimes. And I think Nutella Banana Bread definitely falls into the REAL FOOD category….real food you must eat now!

  1. Banana bread just got a million times better! That nutella swirl is sooo pretty and looks SO delish!

  2. Plain butter doesn’t go with coffee. This, buttered, does go with coffee. Now bring me a couple slices please!

  3. LOL! You won’t find those cute Bento boxes around here either. No way am I getting up early to do that or give up time in the afternoon or evening for it. Our kids are perfectly capable of making their own lunches. Gotta love this stage in life!!! Now Banana Bread with Nutella swirled in…that’s what I call a perfect lunch box filler! Love it!!!!

  4. I’m. In. LOVE. Nutella + banana bread is the best thing ever. I like your daughter’s thinking. Often it’s mine too!

  5. Nutella and bananas are such an awesome combo and banana bread is one of my favorite breads to make in the autumn! 😀 This looks lovely, Aimee!

  6. I can bet that my husband is going to see this in his Pinterest feed tonight(don’t tell anyone he has a Pinterest account though) and ask when I’m going to make some for him. Can’t go wrong with bananas and Nutella!

    1. I’ll trade you some bread for one of those lattes! Better yet….let’s just get together…I’ll bring the bread, you bring the pumpkin lattes!

  7. Two of my favorite things combined into one delicious quick bread. I’m dreaming about this toasted with a little more Nutella!

  8. I’m with you Amy! Anything I can have a cup of coffee with is a winner! Your a good mom. You are teaching your kids skills to take care of themselves. They just don’t know it yet. I still make the kids lunches and let me tell you that I was just thinking that my 11 year old really should be doing this on his own! And I agree, who has the time to cut all the veggies into shapes and really what kid wants to eat that at school? 🙂 But this bread looks amazing! Pinned! 🙂

    1. Just realized I spelled your name wrong too. I am sorry. I hate when people do that to me, so I apologize for doing it to you!!

  9. I just wanted to tell you I LOVE your blog so much. Do you have a section for people allergic to eggs? Or could you recommend how to change this recipe?

    1. Hi Debb, unfortunately I don’t have an allergy section. Having not used egg substitutes, I probably wouldn’t be a good resource for you. I’m sorry 🙁

    2. Hi, debb lavoie, if you’re allergic to eggs you can actually sub eggs in alot of recipes using ground flax seed. Ijave never done the recipe without eggs bu if its an allergy issue i thinkbits definitely worth a try! 🙂

  10. I second Amy’s opinion!! Haha!! Your kids are definitely lucky 🙂 And this bread looks amazing ; such a pretty nutella swirl! Pinned 🙂

  11. Nutella swirled banana bread in your kids’ lunches?? Can I be adopted? 😉 My parents always used to pack my lunch the night before, minus the apple that they sliced in the morning to keep it from browning. It was always the same: a half sandwich (either plain PB or bagel and cream cheese), fruit, treat, juice. Plus the morning snack. I miss those days — making my own lunch is too much work! 😉 Pinned!

    1. Haha, parents are weird when they decide what is and what is NOT acceptable in lunches. We get in such a rut. My kids get into a rut too, no doubt! But banana bread is a great cure for that 🙂 Thanks for pinning!

  12. Anything that you can have with your beloved coffee, right? 🙂
    I would have this with coffee. Or water. Or just by itself, because that’s how super amazing it is!
