Nutella Tahini Swirl Banana Bread

Nutella Tahini Swirl Banana Bread is a delightful combination of bananas, tahini and Nutella mixed together to create a moist and delectable loaf cake.

You might think of only using tahini in savory dishes like hummus, but tahini (ground sesame butter) is delicious in sweet recipes as well!  It gives the finished product a nutty, complex flavor.

The Nutella adds a hazelnut-chocolate note to the loaf and is fantastically delish!

To make this hearty bread, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy and then add the eggs.  

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and incorporate into the butter mixture.  Add the bananas, sour cream and vanilla.

Pour half of the batter into a loaf pan.  Dot in a checkerboard fashion half of the tahini and Nutella.  With a knife, swirl the Nutella and tahini into the batter.  Repeat the process with the rest of the batter, Nutella and tahini.

Bake for about an hour and 10 minutes.  Let it cool slightly and then turn the loaf out onto a rack to cool.  Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.

Nutella Tahini Swirl Banana Bread

Makes: 8 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 1 hour & 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour & 25 minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (192 grams)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp Nutella, runny (heat the Nutella in the microwave slightly)
  • 5 tbsp tahini


Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan and line the pan with a strip of parchment paper coming up the two long sides; set aside.

In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, scraping down the bowl a few times. Add eggs and beat to incorporate.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream and vanilla; mix to combine.

Pour half of the batter intro the prepared pan. Dot the batter in a checkerboard fashion with half of the Nutella. Then dot the empty spots with the tahini. Using a knife, gently swirl the Nutella and tahini into the batter; do not mix it in…just swirl. Add the rest of the batter on top. Then dot the Nutella and tahini on the top and swirl in.

Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out on a rack to cool.
