Nutella Banana Bread

I had a few bananas that were going bad, so I jumped onto pinterest to find something low fat to that looked interesting. After I saw this recipe for Nutella banana bread, I knew I had to make it.

Nutella Banana Bread

This is changed a bit to my liking, but by all means, do it however you like.

Nutella Banana Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar (I used 3/4c splenda)
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana (I used 3 medium bananas)
1/3 cup skim milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 heaping cup Nutella 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8×4-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. (I always use foil…it never sticks, and my pans aren’t soaking for days.)

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda & salt.

3. In a separate large bowl, beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, milk and vanilla. Beat until blended.

4. Add flour mixture, beat at low speed just until flour is incorporated (do not over mix).

5. Spoon Nutella into a small dish and soften in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Add 1 cup of the banana bread batter to the Nutella and stir until blended well. Spoon Nutella batter alternately with plain banana bread batter into the prepared pan. Swirl batters together with a knife.

6. Bake 50 to 60 minutes. (I baked it for 55

Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Cherry Banana Bread

I just made this modified from a recipe I found online & wanted to share (well, keep it for future reference. ;) ~Watty~

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2-3 really ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 3/4 cup almond flour, 1 cup all purpose flour) 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (I used 1/2c of dried bing cherries instead….heck, use raisins, use both! Whatever you want! I also added 1/4c wheat germ)

I also added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray a bread pan with non-stick cooking spray, and lightly dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in bananas, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt (and cinnamon). Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, mixing just until blended. Fold in walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated pan until golden and a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Turn bread out onto a wire rack and let cool. (***Let cool at least 10 minutes in pan. I took it out too soon and it broke)

The end nine oh  

I really like it. I had the kids try it, and they really like it too. Cam likes it, but said it’s a bit more moist than he likes. Hey, I’ll take it. Normally these are the picky people, and none of them commented about it tasting ‘weird’ or not sweet enough. (I halved the sugar among the other modifications)

I can’t wait to try this tomorrow!
