Our favorite banana bread recipe topped with Nutella.

This post is sponsored by Nutella® but all opinions are my own.

 The smell of banana bread baking in the oven is admittedly one of my favorite smells. It brings me right back to being a kid and running in the house after school and instantly knowing that our mom had baked some homemade banana bread. That was the sign of a really good day! Our mom bakes banana bread for us when we all go home for a family visit still. Needless to say, it’s a family favorite!

Our favorite homemade banana bread recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. From our grandmother to our mom to us, now our daughters get to enjoy this delicious recipe.

Both Sara and I love making banana bread for our families, as gifts or on special occasions. And we know a way to make it extra special… add a little Nutella® hazelnut spread on the slices of banana bread!

We’re sharing our go-to banana bread recipe today that’s a lighter spin on our family recipe. It uses vanilla yogurt in place of oil and isn’t as sweet as most traditional banana bread recipes.

Nutella does not contain artificial colors or preservatives. It’s a great way to shake up your brunch menu. For example, it’s so pretty to have a brunch with freshly baked banana bread with Nutella for guests to spread on their slice of bread.

Just a little bit of Nutella goes a long way, all you need is a little bit of Nutella on your slices of banana bread.

Here’s a tip with banana bread – you can freeze extra loaves! We actually have a spot in our freezer that always has frozen extremely ripe bananas. Pull those out, let them thaw, bake your bread. Why not bake an extra loaf to put in the freezer? Then pull it out and let thaw!
