Nutella and Banana Bread

Recently I found out about a grocery service that delivers. Great, sometimes going to the store with two kids in tow is not fun (wait, did I say sometimes, I really meant every time) so having my groceries brought right to my door seems like a win-win. I can shop at my leisure, and I don’t have to deal with two preschoolers begging for treats, candies, and coins while I would like to quietly peruse isles. The service seemed to work well, the only catch was all fresh produce and meat can only be ordered by the kilogram. I wanted some bananas, but almost 2 pounds is way more than we could eat before they went bad. Oh, and not to mention, someone (who shall remain nameless) has a little problem going number two after eating bananas. Sorry, is mentioning bodily functions T.M.I. on a food blog? Well if you have kids, you know that this is a topic that is regularly discussed. Yay for poop! Anyway, I thought banana bread would be a great way to use up some of the extras, but I wanted to add a little twist. Nutella. I was very pleased with the way these came out, especially since I heavily tweaked the recipe. The banana flavor was present, but not over powering, it was slightly sweet, and the nutella added a nice flavor as well. My husband said he didn’t really care for it, but asked for a few slices in his lunch the next day to go with his coffee (faker!) The kids, on the other hand, loved it. I could barely shoot the bread before “M” was trying to eat a piece of “cake.”
