Banana Nutella Split

Nutella has been all up in my face lately. I see it on commercials, on websites and at the grocery store… and as of last Tuesday, I’ve never had it. I know “tisk-tisk” some of you are saying, but for some reason I was terribly uninterested in trying it.

Until… I caved. Well let me just tell you, I wish I never tried the stuff… because now all I can think about is “MMM this would be good dipped in Nutella, and how about Nutella on this… and Ooooh yeah some Nutella on that” and frankly I’m getting quite annoyed. No worries, I still love it! But what is a girl to do to get Nutella off her brain??? Share it with you… my friends… yesssss. This isn’t a real “scratchy” recipe post I know, but more of a “get Nutella of my brain” and on to yours kind of post.


Here is my newest and most favorite way to use this hazel-nutty spread.

*Oh… and the favor part? If you want to head over to Babble and vote for me aka *Simply Scratch* … that would be totally awesome of you! And those who’ve already voted, I LOVE YOU and Thanks!


If you have a banana, some coconut and of course… the Nutella, then you’ve got a pretty healthy breakfast or snack.


Take the banana. It can be a green un-ripened banana or a very ripened banana like mine… doesn’t matter… one thing for sure is that we all like our bananas different.


Peel and slice it in half lengthwise.


Spread on some of that Nutella goodness.


Sprinkle with a little or…


… a lot of coconut {sweetened or unsweetened, you pick}. Try the coconut toasted too… omg.


Sandwich it with the other half of the banana… slather on some more Nutella and sprinkle with more coconut if you want.


Look it square in the eye…

Yes I’m aware… bananas don’t have eyes.


Unhinge your jaw and inhale it like no one is looking.


I promise you will agree that this makes a lovely breakfast!

But if you don’t have the coconut… just a banana and some Nutella is a match made in heaven!

Now don’t forget to head over to Babble and vote!

    I thought I was the only one left on this planet who's never had nutella before. I think it's official- we were the last two standing and I'm the sole survivor. It's time I give it a try- starting with your awesome bananas! Such a great idea!

    Voted- maybe twice too hehe.

    I read this post when I was at work today and because of it, I slathered Nutella on baguette as part of my dinner. The Booze Hound is out for the night. This is what happens 🙂

    Mmmm. I love me some Nutella! Sometimes I have a straight up spoonful if the moment calls for a rich, chocolatey treat. 🙂 I love the addition of coconut, too!

    #80 to LIKE you on Babble! Congratulations for making it onto that list! I'm one who has not jumped on board the Nutella train yet. I'm scared to. I hear that Nutella is highly contagious and once you start cooking and blogging about it you get consumed with it's delicious hazelnutty chocolatey goodness. I'm too weak minded for Nutella's powers. Someday I'll cave too.

    Mmmmm, Nutella! I only buy a jar every few years, because I just cannot stop until I've eaten the whole thing, either on toast or just a spoon. My advice is just to finish it off and try to forget about it! Heading over the Babble now.

    I remember seeing the ads all the danged time. It looked good, but I was afraid to spend the $ on it if it sucked. Then my brother served some to me with Italian Wafers for dessert.

    O.M.G!

    Oh yeah, I was totally addicted! One of my favorite ways to eat it at the time was on graham crackers with marshmallow fluff (instant s'more!).

    Later, I loved to just eat it

    Sounds AMAZING. I'm going to try this with homemade Nutella (wish me luck)! Silly question, though. WHERE did you get your beautiful plates?!
