Marbled Nutella Banana Bread

I just returned from meeting my two nephews for the very first time!  They are the most adorable little guys around.  I can't wait to get back down to FL to spend more time with them.

For this week's post I want to share a recipe with you that makes me feel like I'm at home, banana bread.  This is exactly what I need after being around my family for a few days and now returning to D.C.  This recipe takes banana bread to the next level by incorporating nutella in a gorgeous marbled pattern.  The bread is moist and delicious, just the way a banana bread should be.  I hope you enjoy!

Marbeled Nutella Banana Bread
adapted from Sugar Plum
(9 PointsPlus per serving)


2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Nutella 

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together the banana, butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy and well combined - about 2 minutes.  Beat in the eggs until well combined - about 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in the flour mixture until just combined.  Divide 1/2 of of the batter into a medium bowl; stir in Nutella until combined.

Alternate spoonfuls of batter into the loaf pan until all of the batter is used up.  Swirl batter gently with a knife. Bake 1 hour or until well risen, deep golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out with moist crumbs attached.  Once slightly cooled, slice into 10 pieces and enjoy!  (1 serving = 1 slice, 9 PointsPlus per serving)
