Grilled Nutella Banana Sandwich

Stack of delicious vegan Grilled Banana Nutella Sandwiches

The exact words that came to mind when I saw this gorgeous stack was “OOOOOOKKKK,” as rapper Lil Jon would say.

He might also say something like, “YEEAHHHHHH!” or “WHAT?”

Bread, banana, and homemade vegan nutella for making a delicious treat

You get the drift. This thing is amazing and worthy of all the adjectives.

This recipe is ridiculously simple and beckoning to be made.

Just 1 pan, 4 ingredients, and 10 minutes until you hold this crispy, warm, sweet sandwich in your hands.

Bonus? It’s vegan (utilizing my 4-Ingredient Vegan Nutella) and butter-free, relying on coconut oil for that crispy crust.

Come to mama.

This stack is absolutely irresistible. It’s:

Crispy on the outside
Warm and melty on the inside
& Quick

When would one eat such a sandwich? I’m glad you asked! Anytime really, but more specifically I think this would make the perfect indulgent lunch, snack or dessert. I mean, who wouldn’t be impressed if you brought this out after dinner? Can we say, instant friends?

If you try this sandwich, let us know what you think. Leave a comment, rate it, tell your mom, tell your wife, tell your kids – you get the idea. And don’t forget to tag a picture #minimalistbaker on Instagram so we can see. It’s literally the best. Cheers, friends!

  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp coconut sugar
  • Sliced strawberries
  • Salted peanut butter


  • Heat a skillet (cast iron is best) over medium heat.
  • In the meantime, spread a generous amount of coconut oil on the outer-facing sides of your bread, then spread a generous amount of Nutella on both sides of the inner-facing slices (see photo). Arrange sliced banana on one side and fold together to make a sandwich.
  • Once the skillet is hot, press the sandwich down and grill until golden brown and crispy – about 2-4 minutes. Lower heat if browning too quickly. Flip and repeat on the other side. Repeat until desired crispiness is achieved.
  • Slice in half and serve immediately! This would be amazing with some homemade almond milk. Optional additions are listed above, though this sandwich is quite delicious on its own.


*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1 sandwich using ~ 3 Tablespoons Nutella and 1 Tbsp coconut oil. Stats will vary depending on kind/thickness of bread.

    Made it last night and I would absolutely make this again. Would be a great semi healthy snack for kids and am interested to add strawberries to it too. Thank you for sharing!!

      Strawberries sound like a delicious addition, Jackie! Thanks so much for the lovely review!

  2. Ashleigh Washington says

    I tried it but instead of grilling I toasted the bread and put the sandwich together! Delightful and delicious ? Thumbs up for this recipe ?

  3. Angie says

    It’s a snowy day in NY wanted something sweet while my daughter and I are stuck indoors and this was perfect. Love the taste the coconut oil gave the bread. Yummm! Will definitely do it again.

  4. babykitted says

    Part of my loves you, and at the same time, part of me loves you for this incredibly delicious, over the top sandwich!! Literally everything I need in a sandwich – drooling! Thanks for such a great post.

  5. Jessica says

    Really loved this recipe. The coconut oil gives it such a delicious subtle smell and flavour. Very easy to make, too. I added strawberries to the inside of one of them and it was great.


  6. SingaDiva says

    Looks like we are in sync! I’ve made this forever with toasted bread! Instant gratification ;)

  7. Rhiannon says

    I just made this and it was delicious. Thanks for saving a late after work night dinner from being microwave food!

  8. Rhiannon at VegBurge says

    I *need* to eat this RIGHT NOW. I’m off to buy some bananas haha! Seriously, it looks SO good!!

  9. Christine says

    On banana bread!? Girl you speak my language. I’ve been waiting for my bananas to ripen so I can make it ;)

  10. Chardae says

    My mouth literally fell open when I saw this! When I could finally close it I asked the hubbs to run to the store for all the ingredients!

  11. Eve ~ Baking the Day says

    Dana, just stop, this recipe literally made my mouth water! Banana and nutella is amazing, but putting it into a grilled sandwich is a stroke of genius!

    • beertje says

      Yes, but leave it longer than the light indicates. Got mines out too fast. Wheren’t very crispy. :(
      Even with walnuts it more delicious!

  12. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says

    Well, hello beautiful!! I love little sandwiches like this because they are totally appropriate for every meal!!

  13. Linda | A La Place Clichy says

    Who knew something so simple could look so delicious! I mean that nutella melting out of the sandwich… kind of too much to take in right now. I will definitely remember this for my next nutella indulgence.

  14. Cristina @ I Say Nomato says

    Bananas? Nutella! I’m in! Where do I sign up? I’m going to have to make these… ummm… yesterday…

  15. Emma {Emma's Little Kitchen} says

    Wowweeee! How can you not love this?! Also, uber-impressed with your epic stacking skills.

  16. Mel @ The Refreshanista says

    Oh my gosh the Lil Jon reference seriously cracked me up!!!! And the sandwich looks heavenly :) now I gotta whip up some Nutella and try not to eat it all before making at least one sandwich!

  17. Jj Almafuego says

    I think I just found my new pre-workout bfast (on Gf bread for me) and my new hiking snack. I have no doubt it would still be delicious cold.

  18. Vera Clathorne says

    OMG! This Sounds so good and simple ! I want to make it right now! I love your recipies and can’t wait to try this one!

  19. Kaitlin says

    I think I just died and went straight to heaven! Planning this on a day where I get a lil extra movement in if ya know what I mean. Looks SO totally worth it though!!
