There’s been a lot of Nutella action on the site lately. Truth is, I have a massive jar in the pantry that I’m trying to use up, so I’m getting creative lately. Whenmy desire to clean out the pantry lined up with a batch of overripe bananas on the counter (because we live in Florida and bananas ripen at a rate that is 200% over normal), I adapted my Banana Bread with Streusel Topping recipe to make this one bowl Nutella Banana Bread.
Its unfortunate that it was so good, because I am positive that now I will have to buy another jar of Nutella and make it again, and I’ll be no closer to clearing out the pantry than I was before.
Short and sweet today, not much to say. Mix it up in under 10 minutes, only a bowl and a spoon to clean- its the ultimate recipe for everyone that is as tired as I am right now. Also, your house smells amazing while its baking.
Hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend!
