Have I told you guys about my obsession with Nutella? So I tasted nutella for the first time when I was doing my MBA in Scotland. One spoon and I thought it was like the best thing I had ever tasted. So I started buying jars of nutella on each grocery trip. But I soon realized I was spending a lot of money of in. You know there’s always a financial crunch when you are a student, studying and living alone. And so I thought maybe I could replace nutella with the cheaper hazelnut spread at the grocery store. But that proved to be a disastrous decision. The local grocery store hazelnut spread taste was nowhere close to Nutella! So bad it was, that I ended by throwing the entire can and then bought a new jar of nutella! So that was the beginning of my Nutella obsession and over the years, the obsession has only increased! I swear, if not for the calories, I would eat at least 10 tablespoons everyday!

I always buy those huge jars of Nutella from Costco but they are just too big for the 2 of us to consume and hubby isn’t a big fan anyway (I know, roll eyes!!) so I end up using in a lot of my recipes like this Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Bread. Nutella + everything = awesome but Nutella + pumpkin = more awesome than you can imagine!

Have you guys tried my pumpkin bread? It’s really one of my favorite quick breads and make it every year during fall. For this recipe, I basically used my basic pumpkin bread recipe and added some nutella. Of course I cut down on some sugar since nutella is so sweet. The result was a deliciously spiced soft pumpkin bread with little touch of nutella. So perfect with a pumpkin spice latte or chai!

    1. Hi Monica! Glad you share my love for nutella 😉 Yeah can be made eggless, try one of these:

      1. For each egg, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed (measure after grinding) with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir well, and place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, the result should be a sticky egg-like substitute. A quick and easy egg replacement, featuring freshly ground flax or chia seeds.

      2. 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce or 1/2 cup yogurt for the 2 eggs!

  1. Oh, this sounds incredible, Manali! Pass me a big slice of this one, please…it’s perfect for the Fall season! (I’m always jealous when you mention studying in Scotland, by the way!)

  2. I love Nutella too, but am afraid to have it around! It would be perfect swirled into this gorgeous pumpkin bread, however, if I could only keep my spoon out of it. haha This looks delicious, Manali!
