Banana Nutella Bread

This is a repost - - I just read that today was National Banana Bread Day!  I wish I would have known sooner.  Here is my favorite recipe for a great twist one Banana Bread.

Its Friday!  That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post. 
  This recipe is from one of my first "What I Bookmarked This Week" posts.  I was excited when I first saw this recipe for Cherry Banana Bread with Nutella Swirls from On and Off My Plate.  But then, like a lot of my bookmarks, I forgot all about it.  Well, the other day I looked over at my bananas and they were pretty much saying "use us now or we are done!"  I planned on my making my usual Banana Bread  when I remembered this recipe.  I didn't make it exactly the same, I didn't have the cherries in the house but mine was great and I don't think I am going to be able to go back to regular banana bread ever again.  Enjoy!

What you need:
3 small ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup Nutella

What you do:
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; Add flour mixture to banana mixture, stirring just until moistened.
Spoon 1/2 batter into a loaf pan coated with baking spray. Drop in  1/4 cup Nutella in dollops. Swirl a bit then top again with remaining batter. Add the rest of the Nutella in dollops on top. Swirl again.
Bake at 350º for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
