I absolutely love Nutella…straight from the jar, on top of toast, really with just about anything! It has the perfect balance of sweet chocolate’y flavor combined with a hint of hazelnut to cut the sweetness. This is a very easy, simple recipe that combines several of my favorites into a not-so-healthy snack.

Not exactly "Heart Smart"...but tastes good!

Banana Nutella Biscuit Roll

2 1/2 cups Bisquick mix

2/3 cup milk


1 thin sliced banana

To make:

Heat oven to 375°F

Dough prepped...ready to spread Nutella and add banana slices

In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2/3 cup milk and 2 tablespoons sugar until dough forms. If dough is too sticky, gradually mix in enough Bisquick mix (up to 1/4 cup) to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto surface well dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 10 times.

Instead of making biscuits, roll the dough out into a rectangular shape. Spread Nutella on the dough and top with thin slices of banana. Roll the dough into a log roll form, seal edges and seam.

Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet seam side down. Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan and slice.

Dinner last night was one of those “clean out the pantry” type nights. Cooking on a budget is kind of like an adventure–open the fridge or cupboard and see what you can whip up. The main course was a choice between leftover soup or baked beans. Although they are delicious alone I needed something for dipping and scraping that last bit of goodness out of the bowl. Sliced bread sounded boring, so I looked around and realized I had no eggs or milk “Oh no!”

Quick Mayo Biscuits

Then, I luckily found a recipe for mayonnaise biscuits. The thought of it sounds odd, but if you think of what mayonnaise basically is–eggs, oil, lemon juice, salt, maybe some seasoning such as dry mustard–you have the essentials for baking. So I figured I’d give it a try…surprise, they worked!

These biscuits go great with a little dab of butter and along with anything that requires a good dipping vessel. They also went perfectly with some butter and strawberry preserves for a quick breakfast. For the best taste and texture always serve warm–either zap in the microwave for 30 seconds or re-heat in the oven on 350 until warm.

Quick Mayo Biscuits (makes about 12 biscuits)


2 1/4 cups of self rising flour (if no self rising flour see conversion here)

1 1/4 cups milk (I didn’t have milk, I used rice milk and it was fine)

4 rounded Tbsp mayonnaise (you can use the light version)**

1 Tbsp sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl thoroughly. Spoon into  a greased muffin pan (Optional: dab a little olive oil or butter on tops to give a golden top when they bake).  Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve immediately!

**Cooking note: this recipe is almost vegan–substitute the mayo for “veganaise” and you’ve got yourself a vegan biscuit!
