Banana-Nutella Egg Rolls Recipe

SERIOUSLY the best dessert I've ever eaten. Trust me on this one! Repin to save to your boards.

I’m excited to announce, publicly, that I have a new favorite dessert recipe:

Crispy, chocolaty, all-around perfect banana-Nutella egg rolls. A sweet but not-too-sweet dessert that had my family literally lined up with forks and plates, ready to dig in.

(I also feel the need to apologize to my previous favorite recipe, pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting. Sorry, but you’ve been replaced.)

Banana-Nutella egg rolls recipe. My Favorite Dessert ever - trust me on this one! Repin to save.

So just last week, I posted a recipe for banana-Nutella ice cream, as a part of the $10 Food Day series. I had extra bananas and Nutella on hand, and picked up some egg roll wrappers at the store.

What happened next is sure to become ingrained in our family lore.

I made three batches of these within about 20 hours:

  • First to see if they tasted good (they did).
  • Second, as a late-night dessert.
  • Third, the next day, to take photos of.

See what I mean?

In a nutshell, this is my all-time favorite dessert. Do yourself, your family, your friends, your neighbors a favor… Heck, do anyone a favor and make these!

The Cost

  • Egg roll wrappers (5) = $.76
  • Banana (1) = $.25
  • Nutella (5 tablespoons) = $.68

Total cost for four banana-Nutella egg rolls = $1.69
Total cost per egg roll = $.42

Banana-Nutella Egg Rolls
Yield: 4 egg rolls

Banana-Nutella Egg Rolls

You can find egg roll wrappers in the produce section of the grocery store. Look for any of the following brands: Nasoya, Frieda's or Melissa's.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes


  • 4 large egg roll wrappers
  • 1 banana
  • 4 heaping tablespoons of Nutella
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Cut banana in half the long way. Cut each half in half again, lengthwise.
  2. Lay egg roll wrapper on the counter in front of you. Spread a bit of Nutella on each wrapper and lay a banana slice on top. (See photo above.) Start rolling from the bottom, fold in the sides when you get to them, and finish rolling until you have an egg roll. Seal the edges with a bit of water.
  3. Heat a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat (use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.) You'll know when the oil is hot enough when the egg roll wrapper sizzles when you place it in the oil. Place egg roll in the pan and cook on one side until golden brown. Turn and heat the other side until golden brown. Remove egg roll from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Continue frying each egg roll.
  4. To serve, dust egg rolls with powdered sugar. Serve warm with extra Nutella for dipping, if desired.

    These look yummy! Not sure what my banana-hating husband would think of them though! This looks like a great way to use up extra egg roll wrappers. Whenever I make spring rolls I always tend to have a couple left over and never sure what to do with them.

      Admittedly, I’m not a huge banana fan. But these are the bomb. I don’t think he’ll even notice the banana with all the chocolaty-crispy goodness going on!

    I definitely am not a banana lover, in fact if I have to eat one I stuff it down. I had some of Haley’s banana-nutella egg rolls a few days ago and they were honestly some of the best things I have ever eaten. Sweet and flavorable with a crisp outer crust. YUMMY!!

    I cannot wait to try these! They should go over big with Caleb, who is a huge Nutella and banana fan!!
