  • Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with oil or butter. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Brown your butter. Heat butter over medium heat until it fully melts. Lower to low heat and cook until the butter turns a golden yellow color. Remove from the heat and set aside. The butter will continue to brown as it sits.
  • Add all purpose flour, baking soda, and cinnamon to a bowl. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
  • Add the brown sugar, eggs, and browned butter to a separate bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Whisk until you get a light, fluffy mixture (1-2 minutes).
  • Add the smashed bananas, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Lastly, add your dry ingredients from step 4 to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter.
  • Spoon half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Drop spoonfuls of the nutella on top of the batter. You will want to use about half the nutella. Use a knife to swirl the nutella into the batter. Repeat this process for the last half of the batter and nutella.
  • Bake for 60-65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let it rest for 15-20 minutes before cutting into it.
