There is little better in life than the combination of banana and Nutella. At least as far as I'm concerned. So the natural merging of banana and Nutella baked into a canned croissant or biscuit was an experiment I was willing to endure. Good news, it's every bit as heavenly as you might imagine. This flaky banana Nutella croissant recipe is seriously going to be one of your favorites.
The banana softens up the perfect amount while cooking inside the biscuit or croissant. These are not overly sweet. If you aren't opposed to Nutella for breakfast, consider these.
If you're going to make these a dessert, you might even want to sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar on top before baking. But really, they're pretty perfect as is.

Banana Nutella Croissant Instructions:
Flatten each biscuit or croissant on a cookie sheet. Put about 2-4 Tbsp Nutella on each biscuit. Top with half a banana. Fold the biscuit around the banana and seal it closed by pressing the seams together. Bake until golden brown.
It's that easy! See the recipe card below for detailed instructions.
- 1 can croissant dough ((you can use canned biscuits as well))
- 4 bananas
- Nutella (use as much or little as you like)
- Heat oven according to your canned croissant or biscuit roll instructions.
