  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 medium over-ripe bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup Nutella


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Mix in the bananas.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined.
  • Add the Nutella to a medium bowl and microwave for 20 seconds to soften it. Stir 1 cup of the banana bread batter into the Nutella until well combined.
  • Drop large spoonfuls of the batters, alternating between each one, into the prepared pan. Use a butter knife to swirl the batters together lightly.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.



Bananas should be very ripe for the best banana bread.
You can mix in up to a cup of chopped walnuts or chocolate chips, if desired.
Store banana bread, tightly covered, on the counter for 3-4 days.
