Nutella Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I love banana bread, but the addition of Nutella swirled in - and some chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts - really takes it to the next level! I love this flavor combination, and it's a really easy and fun way to make a plain banana bread extra special and delicious.

  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chocolate hazelnut spread (warmed if needed to make spreadable)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly brush the inside of a 10 by 5 inch loaf pan with coconut oil and line with a strip of parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with the back of a fork until only a few lumps remain. Add the egg and mix until smooth. Using the fork, whisk in the coconut oil, yogurt, sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth and incorporated. Add the flour, and baking soda. Use a rubber spatula to stir until combined being careful not to over mix. Fold in the hazelnuts if using and the chocolate chips.
  3. Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Dollop half of the hazelnut spread over the top of the batter. Using the tip of a knife swirl the spread into the batter. Top with the remaining batter and repeat with the remaining chocolate hazelnut spread. Bake for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until the bread is firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with very few crumbs. Remember the chocolate spread will still be wet.  Allow to cool for 30 minutes in the pan. Turn the pan on it’s side and rest an additional 30 minutes. Loosen the edges with a knife and remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Bread will keep for 4 days at room temperature.

    It is now my families favorite banana bread! I've fixed it for them twice, and the loaf only last a few days. Also, it is so easy to make; huge plus for me. :)

    Is it supposed to get really brown and crusty on the outside and on top? I baked it in same size as recipe, metal pan for only 45 minutes and it was done. Oven temp checked as well. It didn't burn but was dark brown. Had great taste.
