Fluffernutter Nutella Banana Bread

There are 57 days until Christmas.54 or 55 if you want to have all your presents purchased, wrapped, and under the tree in time.

57 days. Not WEEKS. DAYS.

Let’s not even talk about how Jordan’s Halloween costume is still not complete and Halloween is in 3 days.

I am SO way behind this year. Usually? By now I have my excel spreadsheet started, updated from last year. Old gifts have been taken out , people have been updated. New sheets have been created for “shopping list” and “food to bake” and “MEL DON’T PEEK IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT MY COMPUTER.”

I have not opened my spreadsheet.

I have not thought about Santa.

I have not created a to-bake list.

I have not purchased 12 bags of red and green candy melts. (Which means, you know, that by Tuesday when I can get to Michael’s, they’ll all be gone. The craft-store going crowd is a think ahead bunch.)

So I’m not ready for Christmas. Not in the slightest.

When it comes to gift giving at Christmas, I’d say 90% of what I give is something I make. Sure, we buy gifts too, but I don’t know what to buy the neighbors’ best friends’ sister’s garbage man.

So I bake.

I love to make cookies, obviously. I mean cookies are to Christmas is as pie is to Thanksgiving.

But by the time I’m done baking cookies for Jordan’s best friend’s mom’s sister’s teacher, I get tired of making things that have be done in stages. Or rolled. Or, that take any time whatsoever. Which is why I love brownies, bars, and quick breads for giving.

And, people. I’ve just discovered a new product that is going to be your #1 go to item this Christmas.

They are these paper bakeware containers from Welcome Home Brands.

They are PERFECT for giving. You know why? Because you bake your goodies right in them. Cool, wrap, and give. Done!

You don’t even have to wash the pan. Which, in my book, is probably the most awesomest thing about them.

They’re nonstick, already greased. They just peel off! And yes, that’s marshmallow fluff you see peeking out. IT didn’t even stick. They’re oven and freezer safe, and can go right onto your oven rack, or on a cookie sheet!

These pans come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They have Christmas patters. Fun polka dot patterns. Cake pans, baking cups, loaf pans. It’s like a pan smorgasbord.

I put my rectangular loaf pans to work making this bread that you all are going to love.

Marshmallow Fluff. Nutella. Peanut Butter Banana.

Um….not a word in that sentence I don’t {heart}.

I never thought I’d love peanut butter banana bread. But Oh. My. God. It’s sooooo good. It’s, like magic.

I thought, hmmm. I wonder if I could swirl some fluff into the center? And maybe some Nutella? I asked the internets, and Karly showed me that it could be done.

So I did it. And now, you so need to do it.

Come on. We’re all doing it. You know you want too!

Seriously. One stop gift giving. Now, if only they made paper bowls and mixers and stuff. Then I’d never have to do dishes!

That would be a great Christmas gift. Just sayin’.

And obviously, I’m not the only one in love with peanut butter and banana. Ashton made Peanut Butter Cup Banana Pancakes today. Something else I’d love to get for Christmas. Go check them out!

Now…you know you love these Welcome Home Brands paper bakeware. You want some of your own. Well…come back tomorrow. I’m showing you what else you can make with them…and giving some away!

Fluffernutter Nutella Banana Bread

Fluffernutter Nutella Banana Bread

This is my moms recipe adapted and inspired from Buns in My Oven

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tired bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons sour milk (To make sour milk: adding 1 teaspoon white vinegar to the milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Nutella, warmed
  • 1/2 cup Marshmallow Fluff, warmed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray three small loaf pans (disposable are even better!) with cooking spray.
  2. Mix oil, peanut butter, and sugar in a large bowl with a stand mixer (or a hand mixer is fine too).
  3. Add the bananas, eggs, sour milk, and baking soda to the peanut butter mixture. Beat until combined.
  4. Slowly mix in flour, beating just until combined. Try not to overmix!
  5. Place about 3/4 cup of batter in the bottom of each pan and spread to fill. Place the Nutella and Fluff in separate bowls and warm for a few seconds in the microwave, until it’s spreadable. Drop spoonfuls of the Nutella and Fluff on top of the batter in each loaf. Then spread the rest of the batter evenly on top (about 1/4 cup per loaf).
  6. Place pans on a cookie sheet (in case the fluff spills over!) and bake for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out with only the slightest crumb attached. (I cooked it for about 24 minutes and the bottom was too done.)

Notes

This can be made as one loaf, but it would need to cook longer.
