Nutella Banana Crepes + 23 Delicious Nutella Recipes

These nutella banana crepes are the perfect indulgent breakfast or dessert. Super easy to make and so delicious!

Did you know today is World Nutella Day? That's right, friends, an entire day devoted to enjoying that delightful and delicious blend of hazelnut and chocolate! We eat an obscene amount of Nutella around here... my kids and husband love to eat it with graham crackers, slather it on toast, or even just scoop it out of the container with spoons. I love creating recipes with it, and it makes for a delicious substitute for peanut butter in lots of different recipes. These Nutella banana crepes are a new twist on my favorite crepe recipe, and they are not only super easy to make, they're also indulgent and delicious!
Nutella Banana Crepes

2 eggs
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup flour
1 1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup Nutella
3-4 bananas, sliced
additional Nutella and powdered sugar, for topping

Add the eggs, canola oil, sugar, flour, milk, and vanilla to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Heat a 10 inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Grease lightly with butter or cooking spray. Pour a small amount of crepe batter into the pan, and move the pan in a circular motion to coat the entire bottom of the pan with batter. Let cook about thirty to sixty seconds, or until the edges of the batter bubble slightly, and it's easy to slide a spatula under the edge of the crepe. Flip using a spatula and cook another fifteen to thirty seconds. Remove from pan and stack on a plate.

Spread each crepes with about a tablespoon of Nutella down the middle, then top with sliced bananas. Roll up the crepes. Drizzle with additional Nutella if desired, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Zuppa Toscana

This copycat zuppa toscana is so savory and filling - a delicious combination of flavors!

I know, I know,  I'm probably the last blogger on the face of the earth to post a version of zuppa toscana. This soup has been all over Pinterest since Pinterest began! In all fairness, though, I've tried a pretty wide variety of zuppa toscana recipes, and this was the first one that I deemed blog worthy. So you know it's good! This soup has a lot going for it - it's easy to make, it has pretty minimal ingredients, and it's super delicious. Plus it has bacon. Bacon is always a win! I know Olive Garden makes their zuppa toscana with kale, and you can definitely substitute it in this recipe for the spinach if you want it to be more authentic. However, my husband absolutely despises kale, and I actually think I prefer the spinach in this recipe. The spinach blends with the other ingredients a little better, which makes for a more harmonious soup. This soup isn't exactly the same as the Olive Garden soup, but it's definitely tasty and filling, and perfect for a cold night!
Zuppa Toscana

4 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 pound turkey italian sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups baby spinach
1 cup half and half
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large pot or dutch oven, fry the bacon until crisp. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Add the sausage, onion, and garlic to the pot. Break the sausage into smaller pieces and cook through. Add the chicken broth and potatoes to the pot and simmer 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Stir in the spinach, half and half, salt, and pepper, and allow the spinach to wilt. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve immediately.

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry pomegranate smoothie - so sweet, tangy, and flavorful!

Blueberry pomegranate smoothie - so sweet, tangy, and flavorful!

Does anyone else have a bad case of the winter blahs? I feel like this winter has been dragging on for years now, with no end in sight. I was looking at a friend's sunny vacation photos from Hawaii this week, and suddenly it hit me - I can't even remember what it's like to be warm. That's how bad this winter has been for me. I have to fight the urge every day to wrap myself in a blanket and binge watch Netflix while the snow falls outside. One thing that has been helpful to brighten up the days is making smoothies with the kiddos. We have a great time cooking together, they love slurping them down, and we all get to enjoy a little taste of summer in the middle of the winter. It's a definite win! This blueberry pomegranate smoothie is one we've been making for a while now, and it's always a favorite!

It's made with just a few simple ingredients, and blends up quickly into a tasty treat. I love adding a little flax seed to our smoothies to add some nutrition (my kids don't even notice it!). I really love the combination of blueberry and pomegranate. It's sweet and tangy and flavorful, and I love the little kick of lime from the yogurt. It's the perfect flavor combination!
