Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it! We love banana bread, and our double chocolate banana bread (give it a try!). Banana bread + nutella=YUM! I even modified this recipe because I ran out of white flour (I used some wheat), and it STILL turned out great! So here's the recipe with my modifications:

Ingredients:
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 3 small)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour (or you could do 1/2 wheat and 1/2 white to make it healthier)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup Nutella

Directions:
Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to banana mixture, stirring until just combined.

Spoon half of the batter into a loaf pan coated with baking spray. With a spoon, drop 1/4 cup of the Nutella in dollops on top of the batter. Swirl a bit and then top again with remaining batter. Add another 1/4 cup of Nutella in dollops on top and swirl again.

Bake at 350ยบ for 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool ten minutes in the pan on a wire rack; remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.

*Can bake mini loaves for 35 minutes or muffins for 18 minutes.

Mmm...I wish I had some of this right now! It's really great after it cools too, the nutella gets really gooey and yummy! Enjoy!
