Nutella Summer Truck Tour and a Breakfast Banana Split Recipe #AddaLittleJoy

You know when two things come together so perfectly, it was like it was always meant to be? That's how I feel about Nutella and banana. I love Nutella and banana on toast. I love Nutella and banana with crepes. And now I have a new combo to add to my breakfast menu that just blew me away: Nutella Breakfast Banana Split! What can I say? I go bananas over Nutella and banana. Nuts, isn't it? If I feel a little ambitious over the weekend, I may even attempt Chef Stefano Faita's current recipe - Grandma's Nutella Breakfast Apple cake. I am hoping he will have some samples available when he comes to Toronto as part of the Nutella Summer Truck Tour. More on that in a bit. Right now, let's get back to how you can add a little joy to your breakfast with a recipe that will wow your family.

Nutella Breakfast Banana Split Recipe


Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, peeled and halved lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Nutella
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) muesli cereal or granola
  • Other great topping ideas: cherries, strawberries, coconut, and chopped nuts.

Directions:

  1. Split banana down the middle to make a "boat."
  2. Add 3 dollops of yogurt down the middle of the banana and spoon 3, 1 tsp (5 ml)-sized dollops of Nutella on top of yogurt. 
  3. Sprinkle with muesli or granola and enjoy immediately with a glass of orange juice.

Isn't that amazingly simple? The kids gave me two thumbs up on this one and my daughter doesn't even like bananas! My version is a mini version since I don't have any bowls that were long enough. And, instead of Greek yogurt, I used plain vanilla yogurt since I wasn't sure the kids would like the consistency of it. Because regular yogurt is a little more runny than the Greek kind, my Nutella Breakfast Banana Split didn't look as perfect as in the photo featured on the addjoy.nutella.ca site (which is full of other delicious breakfast recipes) but that didn't stop my kids from digging right in. The granola I used had bits of coconut and chopped nuts in it and added a nice crunchy texture.

  15. I'll be honest, usually Nutella is my 'treat after DD goes to bed' when I have had a challenging day. And since I am being honest, it's usually just me and a teaspoon, but I have been known to put some on brownies and cookies before. If I were to have it in the morning, I think I would have it on waffles with some strawberries.
