This is going to be an out-of-this-world experience for your taste buds. I hope they are ready for this.

How many of you like Nutella?

If you have never heard of it…I am sorry, but you haven’t lived yet. If you don’t like it, then we just can’t be friends. But if you adore it like I do, then you better take notes and get excited for what is to come.

Nutella was part of my childhood…I would eat Nutella sandwiches, Nutella with strawberries and bananas, Nutella by the spoonful (habit I picked up from my mother), and sometimes even Nutella-Oreo-Sandwiches, where I would split open Oreos, spread peanut butter on one side, Nutella on the other side, close them up, and eat them in one bite. Crazy delicious. If I did that now, my insulin levels would spike up and skyrocket, staying there till the age of 80. So as you can see, the Nutella-Oreo-Sandwiches are not an option for me anymore.

Nutella with fruit and bread on the other hand, is a different story…a healthier story. I needed to find myself a Paleo way into it (since the Nutella you buy at the store is not a Paleo spread).

I made this soft, nutty, deliciousness of banana bread and topped it with my very own homemade Paleo Nutella.

I will warn you, this is very high caloric and high in healthy fats, so you will want to only have one slice with Paleo Nutella at a time…on those afternoons where you need and deserve a treat. Read, learn and replicate folks!

    This literally made my mouth water!!! Since my son can’t have nuts, can I substitute coconut flour in this?

      Hey Bon-Bon! Yeah! I am sure you could…you’ll have to sub the walnuts, walnut oil and almond flour. Coconut flour would be a good ingredient to substitute the almond flour with…just be sure to adjust the quantity (usually coconut flour is used in smaller amounts – maybe 3 or 4 tablespoons). For the walnuts…maybe try using an extra banana? Hope this helps a bit!

    Hey Mariel! So all of my bready paleo recipes are turning out pretty crumby. Literally. They taste delicious but the final product when I’m done cooking is a pile of crumbs. I have tried waffles, pancakes, muffins. The only substitution I do is egg whites, no yolks. Any ideas?

      Hey Lindsey! Oh no! I am sorry that is happening to you. Usually when you’re baking Paleo goodies, you want to use ingredients that compliment your Paleo “flours” (nut flours or coconut flour); examples include: eggs (including the yolk…since the added fat holds the consistency together) and things like maple syrup or honey. Try baking with these. Also, be gentle with the bread/waffle/cookies while they are still warm/hot. Place your finished product in the fridge, before cutting it or eating it, and let it sit overnight….this will make the consistency hold better as well! If these things don’t work…then please leave another comment and we’ll figure it out together! :) Thank you so much for your feedback! I appreciate it so much!

    Holy crap on a stick. Seriously. YUM! Thank you SO much for this recipe. I’ve been Paleo for three weeks now and the one thing I keep missing is my Nutella. And with fall around the corner, banana bread is on my mind. I’m trying this tomorrow. Thank you! :)

    Thanks for sharing this! I’ve been triyng bread for a while, but can never get it quite right so I give up and try a month or two later. I’ve decided part of my problem (not all of it…yesterday I forgot the salt!) is my pans so I want to find some nice bread pans. I like yours! So can I ask where you got them and how much they were? :)

    Really want to make this! Just starting on Paleo and am getting super excited at all the choices and recipes. Love your website! Wondering though, I would like to omit the walnuts, dont really like them. Any suggestions on exact measurements of what to replace it with? Maybe cashews? Also can I use Xylitol instead of raw honey? I’ve been told honey is not ok on paleo, What are your thoughts? BTW… I almost did cartwheels when I seen the nutella recipe! People definately have’nt lived until theyve had nutella! lol! Thanks!

      Hi Tara! Thanks for your comment. I hope you like my Paleo Nutella ;), let me know what you think when you try it. Yeah, you can definitely substitute cashews for walnuts, and the measurements should be the same. But you cannot substitute honey with Xylitol. Honey helps keep the baked good’s consistency together, while Xylitol doesn’t (it only sweetens it). Honey is Paleo (get RAW honey, its a lot more pure), so you’ve got nothing to worry about!
