Nutella Banana Bread
My inspiration for the recipe came from a favorite vacation snack. Our favorite vacation destination is Hawaii (more specifically, Maui) and in Maui they sell two foods at the grocery stores that we get every time we go – Maui onion kettle chips (think sour cream and onion but 100x better) and milk chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Those two foods are some of my favorite foods on the planet.
This combo of banana bread came to me as I was looking out at the bone-chilling cold weather, dreaming of the warm sunny beaches of Hawaii, standing next to a couple of leftover (over-ripe) bananas sitting on the counter. In that moment, I figured the closest I would be able to get to Hawaii was to bring the flavors of Hawaii to my house. Behold: Nutella Banana Bread.
And let me tell you, with one of bite of this Nutella banana bread, I went to heaven and Hawaii and back. It’s made like other normal banana breads with a couple of additions: A generous swirl of Nutella and chocolate chips. This banana bread is simple to make and will be a hit with whoever tries it!
Easy to share.
Perfect for on the go breakfasts.
Is your mouth totally watering yet?!? Because I can hardly control myself looking at these pictures and I only have ONE SLICE left! Must.Make.More.
Tip: My favorite way to slice banana bread is in slices (like normal) and then cut each slice into thirds… It makes perfectly portioned slices AND 3 pieces of banana bread is sooo much better than 1, right?!
Super moist banana bread swirled with Nutella and macadamia nuts. This nutella banana bread will seriously melt in your mouth!
- 1 cup (243g) ripe bananas, mashed, about 2 medium bananas
- 1/2 cup (115g) applesauce
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups (210g) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup (202g) sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup (125g) vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup (160g) milk chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup nutella, warmed in microwave
- Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Lightly spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Make the bread: In a medium bowl, mash bananas. Whisk in applesauce, egg, egg white, vanilla, oil, and white sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together until combined. Using a large spoon or rubber spatula, slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Slowly stir in oil until everything is evenly mixed together and no more flour pockets remain. Do not over-mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon half the batter into the prepared baking pan. Drizzle nutella on top. Add remaining batter.
Bake for 60-65 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Slice and serve.
