  • Makes one 9x5 inch loaf
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa nibs
  • 1/2 cup nutella
In This Recipe
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the butter and sugar to combine. Add the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla, bananas, and yogurt.
  4. Add the flour mixture and to the banana mixture and mix just until combined.
  5. Fold in the cocoa nibs. Pour ½ the batter into the prepared pan, and top with ½ of the nutella. Pour the remaining ½ of the batter on top, and finish with the last of the nutella. Use a wooden skewer, chopstick, or a knife to swirl the nutella into the batter.
  6. Bake until the loaf is golden brown and pulls slightly away from the edges of the pan, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
  7. Cool the loaf in the pan for 15 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
