I have a thing for the banana-Nutella combo.
Naturally, as soon as I saw this post I decided that it was absolutely necessary that I combine my love for banana bread and nutella into one delicious treat. After making a batch of dairy-free nutella I decided that instead of eating it right out of the jar with a spoon (which I have been known to do) that I would actually make something with it. I opted for a vegan nutella swirl banana bread for so that my vegan pals could enjoy it too.
2 cups flour (280 g)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar (200 g)
4 ripe bananas (worked out to ~400 g for me)*
1/4 cup vegetable oil (65 mL)
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk (125 mL)
1 tsp. vanillla
3/4 cup homemade vegan nutella (see recipe)
*Never throw out old, brown bananas. Stick them in the freezer until you have a chance to make this!
Preaheat oven to 350 F (175 C).
Mix together dry ingredients. Set aside.
Mash bananas with electric mixer.
Mix mashed bananas together with oil, coconut milk, and vanilla.
Mix wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Do not over mix.
Spoon nutella into dish and heat slightly in microwave. Approx. 20 seconds should do it (you don’t want to burn it!)
Mix 1 cup of the batter with the nutella.
Spoon the batter into a greased bread pan, alternating with spoonfuls of the nutella batter. Cut through the batter with a knife to give a marbled effect.
Bake at 350 F for 1.5 hours- this one takes a long time. And the smell that it gives off while taking forever to bake is torture.
Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.
This banana bread is very tender and moist. And did I mention delicious?
