Nutella Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Hazelnuts

Don’t even ask how many times I’ve made banana bread over this confinement period! I can’t say I’ve been sad about it though. I secretly enjoy and loathe seeing bananas getting too dark a shade for my eating pleasure. I like eating bananas that are perfectly yellow with a few dark marks here and there. The minute they get soft, I get grossed out. Silver lining? Banana bread!!

This banana bread is special because it contains a nutella swirl in the center and on top. Just the thought makes my mouth water. Nutella and bananas are best friends and this banana bread was absolutely delicious.

Although I prefer cakes/quick breads that are made with butter, this one, with coconut oil works well. The crumb isn’t too oily and the cake isn’t too heavy, in fact its surprisingly fluffy for an oil-cake.

Nutella Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Hazelnuts
This banana bread is special because it contains a nutella swirl in the center and on top. Just the thought makes my mouth water. Nutella and bananas are best friends and this banana bread was absolutely delicious.
Instructions
  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.
