One of my favorite go to breakfasts, lunches and/or snacks are nutella and banana sandwiches. I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand and if you combine that with how yummy they are and how quick and easy they are to make, I tend to have them fairly often. Nutella goes really well with a lot of fruits, though banana seems to be the one that I keep coming back to. I normally eat them in sandwich fashion with two slices of bread but an open faced sandwich, or toast, also works really well. I sometimes even butter them up and grill them so that they are nice and golden brown on the outside and the nutella is warm and melted on the inside. You could also easily turn it into french toast for something a bit different.
Nutella and Banana Sandwich

I have been eating Nutella since I was a little girl. Long before it became popular in the US, my family would bring it back with them from Italy. My friends were always jealous of the “chocolate” sandwiches I had. Eating it with bananas was always one of my favorites. I also love it with raspberry preserves, still one of my favorite combos.
That’s my kind of breakfast or snack. Yum!
Can’t beat that…

Nutella is soo delicious. I recently found a vegan recipe for “nutella” and I’ve been meaning to get around to trying it!
My kids eat PB and nutella all the time. They will love this.
I love making these, the flavors are incredible!
Mmm … a go-to for me as well. Though, I also happen to think that Nutella, taken on a spoon, makes a breakfast of champions. 🙂
oh kevin, that is just divine! yummy! 🙂
You should make banana bran muffins with a Nutella filling. Yum.
I do this same thing, with different variations – often, strawberries instead of bananas and sometimes a buttered, grilled pita instead of bread. Nutella is one of my favorite things EVER.
We make this all the time!
Add some Fluff and OMG!!!
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious. I love nutella.
What is it about Bananas and Nutella?!?!?!? Absolutely delicious!!!
Can you believe I never tasted Nutella, at least to my knowledge, now I think I will have to pick some up from the store, this looks too good!
Like Wow! That is my new favorite sandwich!!! 🙂
Nutella is the best, isn’t it?
Happy week end Kevin,
Nutella…my childhood comfort food! yum!
nutella ohh nutella.. been so long I don’t have it
Christina Kim says
Kevin, I appreciate your thoughtful and detailed instructions! Just kidding. Your photos are beautiful as always, and nothing beats nutella. Nothing!
MMMMMMMMMMMM…Super yummie :)!!!
This is a favourite for me too!!
great pic! i ususally put nutella on one slice and pb on the other, stuff in the banana and add it to my panini press… YUM!
Thats for sure a great idea to make a sandwich..Love to try
Happy cook says
I love to eat like this, something which my daughter and I indulge very often.
Simple and decadent!
I love Nutella. I always have it on hand.
Island pepperpot says
that sandwich sure looks good, I will love to give it a try it this week,
Oh these kinds of breakfasts are dangerous. They can get addicting!
Next time, if you use two slices of bread when you do it, cover one in nutella, the other in peanut butter, layer the bananas in between and panini press it. That, my friend, is heaven.
Mind you I also used to slather nutella on (lengthwise) banana slices. Yum.
Looks great on the grainy bread!
j & j dish it out says
YUMMY!!! I eat this all the time! You should try it in crepes….delish!
Such a simple preparation, but it just looks so incredibly enticing! Great photo, too. 🙂
You have such a knack for making simple food look absolutely mouth watering Kevin. I am glad you are around 🙂
Carolyn Jung says
I am a sucker for anything with Nutella. Heck, I even like to eat it by the spoonful straight out of the jar. Is that wrong? 😉
I don’t know… the instructions seem a little complicated… :oP
Seriously, though, YUM! Grilled nutella-banana sandwiches?! I don’t know if I should thank you or begrudge you for planting that seed in my head.
I love Nutella! I just made a Nutella dessert and since I have some on hand, I’m going to try it on bread with bananas today!
What a pefect looking sandwich. Makes me feel like I was a kid again! Great photo! Thanks for sharing!

This sounds delicious!
I can never get enough nutella!
Jenn Sutherland says
So simple, so perfectly yummy. Now clearly the next step is making your own nutella – have you ever done it?
Toast hazelnuts in oven. Rub off skins with a towel. Pulverize in food processor. Add cocoa, drizzle in hazelnut (or walnut) oil to help liquify, then add powdered sugar to sweeten, a pinch of salt. Amazing stuff.
Manger La Ville says
WHY!! WHY did you post this. I have been craving this and then seeing this picture took me over the edge. where is the closest grocery store that carries nutella? why don’t I have this now….
Kathy - Panini Happy says
Looks like you and I were on a similar wavelength this weekend! My husband was begging me to use chocolate in mine, so I’m sure he’d prefer yours!
my go to breakfast/lunch/dinner!!!
you took this waaaaaay back! i used to eat this growing up ALL.THE.TIME! classic.
This photo it’s great. I presume the recipe is as good. I like nutella since i was a girl and i like this kind of simple recipes.
Sorry about my english, sometimes i make mistakes and i don’t see them.

YUM.. this used to be one of my favourite go-to breakfasts. I am so disappointed I developed an allergy to bananas, so I have switched to Nutella with sliced strawberries. Even though they don’t have the same creamy texture, the flavour is at least a good match.
I used to love banana butties (sandwiches) before I developed an allergy to bananas. I bet they taste great with nutella spread.
Could this possibly look more delicious?
purposeful wanderer says
best “directions” ever!
Oh yum, I LOVE nutella! This combo sounds delish. Have you tried Giada’s strawberry nutella paninis – love those! 🙂
This looks so decadant! Or is it decadent? I’m in need of another weekend 🙂
Chef Fresco says
Mmm I love nutella, makes me think of Australia!
[email protected] says
You make this simple sandwich looks so pretty.
Oh My YES, is this ever calling my name.
I LOVE Nutella! 🙂 Nutella and bananas are such a classic combination!
Mrs Ergül says
I have always heard about nutella and bananas being a great combo! You’ve just proved it right!
I just bought some today!
oh, you’re speaking to my heart. i love bananas and nutella on toast. i also love banans with almond butter, peanut butter and honey. sometimes it’s the simplest things that are the best, don’t you think? love your picture, and love this post!
love it! please don’t be too grossed out but this reminds me of our family’s #1 most popular sandwich when i was growing up (in the south, and in a large family on a tight budget, sandwich meat was a rare treat). we had: banana + PB + mayonnaise sandwiches. still comfort food to me today too, isn’t that terrible?! 🙂
chocolate and bananas are good together, but i think nutella is the PERFECT mate. this looks just luscious.
So simple, but so delicious. Love this!
Mike of Mike's Table says
Why have I never had this sandwich before? lol guess what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow morning?
I make nutella sandwich for my kids all the time, but never realized it could look sooo good!
I recently grilled up a chocolate and banana sandwich in my panini press and it was out of this world. If only I had had some Nutella at home, I would have used it in place of the chocolate. I love that banana-chocolate-hazelnut combination!
Love nutella! The sandwich looks perfect!
Thanks for the great idea!
Whatever that I was out of town and totally missed you posting this amazing sammie! Love it!
Ooh, I just had a thought–I’ve got some banana bread and Nutella. Hmmmm!
It’s a good thing I don’t like bananas… otherwise there might have been an ugly scene here 😉
This would do to satisfy my chocolate sweets cravings that I’ve been having since couple days.
Candice or Keith says
I love this tasty treat, but it also reminded me of a personal favorite: Strawberry Nutella Panini. Homemade bread, a little butter and a grill pan, thinly sliced berries and a smear of nutella. Mmmmm…
you should add peanut butter to this for some extra deliciousness
I've been doing this for years. It is AMAZING. You should also try it with fresh mint.
This is such an awesome idea. Bread, nutella and bananas are my husband's favourite. Can't wait to make this for him.
I am using this picture for my blog here.
I am a total crazy for nutella banana samwich! Hope you dont mind. Do let me in case of any issues! Thanks,
This is such a incredible looking sandwich, the photograph of the Nutella and Banana Sandwich looks really professional also. I have my own recipe on the Nutella banana sandwich but comes nowhere close to looking as good as this one.
I love this sandwich, add some sliced almonds……..yummmmy!
I used to make peanut butter, banana, bacon sandwiches for my kids and sprinkled chocolate Kwik powder on top of the peanut butter layer. This was pre- Nutella or BNC (Before Nutella Century.) Try adding bacon to this recipe.
