Nutella and Banana Swirl Bread-So.Darn.Good.
Ever get sick of looking at overripe bananas on your kitchen counter? Maybe it’s just me, but when I buy bananas I expect my kids to eat them. Lately, it seems those little buggers have been going for the tangerines, or apples, and that leaves me with bananas that turn black!
Me: “Kids, do you want a banana in your lunch pack?”
Girls: “No mom! We don’t like when they get freckles!”
…..Well then! Next week I won’t buy them, and then they will ask for bananas! I swear it is a never ending battle. For now, I will just suck it up and turn my overripe bananas into sweet treats like this delicious Nutella and Banana Swirl Bread. This bread was not only easy to make, but it was pretty darn good! It smelled my house up fantastically, and BOY was it pretty!
Would you believe today was the first day I have EVER tried Nutella? Seriously, all these 30 years and I would occasionally buy it for my kids, but not once did I sneak a lick, dip, or spoonful! This morning the thought to try it came into my head and then it inspired this bread recipe. I pretty much just took my standby banana bread recipe and swirled this deliciousness all around inside each layer like an artist.
