Banana Bread with Nutella

The other day the teenager bought some Nutella. I guess I hadn't bought it in a long time so he took matters into his own hands... :o)

I felt like making some more banana bread and baked another loaf of Holly's Banana Bread with Walnuts. Instead of using chocolate, I put a thin drizzle of Nutella in the middle of the bread. It was good, but I thought it could use a bit more Nutella, so I spread some Nutella on the individual banana bread slices and topped them with banana slices. Everyone loved it... :o)

Yes, that's right, I had to take a bite before I took a picture... :o)

Question: What was the last "treat" that you ate? Please make us drool... :o)

Be well,
Andrea

  1. Well, I sure would like to have YOUR treat:) And your pizza in your last post looks amazing! My treats are usually ice cream or frozen yogurt. I haven't had anything REALLY special lately. Oh, I take that back. When I was in Nashville a couple of weeks ago, I had a pc. of cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. It was pretty yummy!

  2. I made Peanut Butter Ginger Snaps two nights ago and ate two of them warm out of the oven. They were amazing. I was in heaven. But the best part? They were counted and tracked and totally fit in to my plan. :)

  3. Wow, that looks amazing! I totally don't blame you for taking a bite first! ;)

    The last treat I ate was a HUGE thing of frozen yogurt last night at a nashville blogger meet up. We all got the peanut butter and latte flavors and had them swirled together.

  8. That Nutella is making me drool! I've never had it, is that crazy or what?! The last treat I had....was peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream at UDF (United Dairy Farmer's). It was AMAZING, with huge chunks of peanut butter (better than mine, so sad).

    The last treat I had was the rainbow cake I showed on my blog from the Jewish holiday. We have tons left over so I may go have a piece soon. I love the gobs of chocolate on the rainbow cake.

  14. That looks incredible beyond words!!! Last treat was my chocolate bar yesterday- I saved it for ages because it was expensive ('speciality' raw/unprocessed) and didn't like it at all. My life is lacking in treats...though I am going to NY on Sunday and do believe I am due some birthday cake ;)

  17. Mmmmm...Nutella. I ate that all the time when I was abroad in Australia. I am not much of a sweets person so my last treat - animal crackers - is pretty boring!

  19. OMG, my daughter loves nutella so much - but she can eat a whole jar in a week - so I hide it for her!

    That looks delicious!

    I don't have many sweet treats, but I did have a sliver of my carrot cake I recently made for birthdays - its so good!

  22. Wow that looks good. Having a calorie deficit really works but sure makes it hard to read food blogs. I still love all of your recipes, ideas, photos, and tips. Thanks.

    The last delicious treat I ate was an amazing little bowl of Belgian chocolate ice cream- it is incredibly rich ice cream with chocolate chunks - delicious.

  24. Nutella and bananas are a match made in heaven :)

    I had this delicious homemade cream puff yesterday with a fluffy custard speckled with vanilla bean. The pastry was flaky but light and yummy as well!
