This is the perfect afternoon snack.  You see the kids have gone back to school this week and I am always trying to have easy snacks for them to either grab on the go, take to school or have at home for them to nibble on between homework and dinner time.  Banana bread is a family favorite in our house and I wanted to add another favorite of ours, well at least of my sons and mine… Nutella.

That’s right I not only add chocolate chips to this moist banana bread but I also swirl dollops of creamy Nutella through out.  It is delish and great with a cup of coffee for the morning time… or if you’re like me to have at anytime.  Just use your favorite banana bread recipe, and add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and three heaping tablespoons of Nutella, swirl with a knife and bake.

Pretty easy right, what do you like to add to your favorite banana bread recipe?  Tell me below 🙂




Look at the chocolate chips….


Add nice heaping dollops of Nutella.  (If your are like me this is when you lick the spoon after of course. :-))
