Banana Nutella Bread

We had two bananas from before the trip still hanging around and starting to look a bit sad so Thursday I decided to make banana bread (which is the usual fate of sad bananas in our house). But just regular banana bread wouldn’t do, I needed something more. See, it’s been a pretty hectic week on all aspects, we haven’t been home much, much less in the kitchen, and I needed something chocolate. Yep, that’s right, that’s my solution for hectic weeks. So I started thinking: should I put chocolate chips in in? Or add cocoa to the dough? Or both? Should I add nuts? And then it hit me: I should just put Nutella in it!! (To clear things right away: by Nutella I mean any chocolate-hazelnut spread, not the Nutella brand necessarily, they are all good in my opinion (I mean, it is chocolate-hazelnut that you can spread and just that in itself is wonderful). It’s like the tissues that I can’t seem to call anything else than kleenex because well, that’s just the way it is.

So this is a twist on my regular banana bread recipe (which I will one day post I guess). It is pretty fabulous as you can imagine, especially if you are a Nutella fan which I am sure there are many out there (I sure know a bunch). The nutella doesn’t overpower the banana, it is pretty much banana bread but with a nuttyness and a hint of chocolate to i. It will also fill your house with a fantastic banana-chocolate-nutty smell which is exactly what I needed that night.
