**Nutella Party Recipe: Banana Nutella Brownies

The very first item I made for our Nutella Party was one courtesy of a co-host of World Nutella Day.  Michelle with BleedingEspresso.com had this wonderful recipe posted for World Nutella Day 2010.  You can find her full write-up and recipe, with her beautiful pictures by clicking here

A personal thank you to Michelle with BleedingEspresso.com and Sara with MsAdventuresInItaly.com for bringing us such a wonderful reason to celebrate!  Oh yeah, and the creators of this delicacy…the folks at Ferrero!

On to the Banana Nutella Brownies!  They were amazing!  Who would have thought that a Banana Brownie would be so delicious?  These were super easy to make, and I always love making items that are from scratch.  You feel like you truly accomplished something at the end.  In fact I had my first “flour-explosion” with my new mixer when I dumped in the flour for the recipe…fun stuff.  Although, I will be the first to admit…with some of the recipes you see from our party on here, you will see I did take quite a few easy short-cuts.  Wait, would we call them short-cuts?  Or, would we call them smart-cuts???  Yeah, I agree…smart-cuts…

I do recommend this recipe.  They come out more cakey than gooey, which is just fine with me.  A lot of guests loved this recipe as well.  A must try!

Don’t forget…keep following, more recipes to come this week and next!

Banana Nutella Brownies from Michelle with Bleeding Espresso

(with my comments in parenthesis)

  • 3/4 cup butter (melted)  (I used margarine.  Either would be fine.)
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (This is always my favorite part of recipes with bananas…the mashing!)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour  (I used all-purpose)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Nutella to taste (To taste, Michelle?  This was dangerous to say.  I could have used a whole jar! I had to practice restraint for sure on this part.)

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter into sugars.

2. Add vanilla, egg, and bananas.

3. Add flour and baking powder.

4. Spread mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

5. Swirl Nutella into top of mixture. I didn’t use any particular technique other than swirling it around with a knife. Martha Stewart would’ve been appalled, I’m sure.  (I used the knife technique as well.)

6. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until center springs back to the touch and edges are just turning golden.

    • Hi Bess, honestly, I drizzled to my heart’s content. It was maybe about….3/4 cup? If you like Nutella, use as much as you like…if you aren’t sure, drizzle just a bit for design purposes. Let me know what you decided was a good amount for u. Good luck! :)

  1. Guess too much nutella can’t hurt;) sounds like a great receipe. I’m making them tomorrow for an oscars party!! Thanks
