  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon optional
  • 1/2 cup salted butter melted and cooled to room temp
  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt can use Greek yogurt or cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar can use brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cups chopped pecans can use walnuts
  • 2/3 cups Nutella


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.S Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, bananas, yogurt, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix. When the batter still has some dry pockets, add the walnuts and fold the batter until just combined. 
  • Transfer half of the prepared mixture to the loaf pan, follow that up with ⅓ cup of Nutella. Then add the remaining bread batter, followed by the remaining ⅓ cup of Nutella. Using a butter knife, swirl the Nutella around going almost all the way to the bottom of the pan.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with just a few crumbs. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for at least 30 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.


  1. If you have unsalted butter, you can still use it for this recipe! Just up the kosher salt by 1/4 teaspoon.
  2. If you are using sour cream, whip the cream before adding it to the bowl.
