Spreadable Hazelnuts

Yesterday, I baked. I haven't baked anything since Christmas. I was going through withdrawals. Being in diet-mode all year so far, I haven't really wanted to bake up a storm of goodies I can't eat. [I still can't eat the banana bread, but Jericho can]. I was cleaning out my freezer and realized I still had some frozen bananas stashed away for eventual banana bread. I've been making the same recipe for years and decided maybe I should try something different. I found a recipe from that includes Nutella. Who doesn't love Nutella? My new favorite thing about Nutella is this new commercial with the mom creating tasty, "nutritious" breakfasts for her kids by giving them Nutella to put on their toast. They are actually hawking Nutella as a way to get your kids to eat a healthy breakfast. Seriously? It's like telling your kids to put a tomato on their double cheeseburger to get their vegetables. It amuses me every time. "Hey kids! Come eat liquid hazelnut chocolate for breakfast and you'll be so much healthier than those loser kids that eat fruit and oatmeal!" 

Behold: this is my Nutella swirled banana bread. I made two loaves. One for Jericho for his lunches and one to bring to work. I put on no pretenses that my bread is healthy. Banana- good. Hazelnuts- good. Sugar,  HFCS, butter, white flour- not good. But put it all together and it's fantastic!! 


  1. That looks absolutely YUMMY!

  2. They almost look like brownies! I bet Scott would really like those. He's also a fan of Nutella.
