Nutella Banana Bread

I have this crazy new chocolate obsession and it's called Nutella! I've seen all the commercials for it, but had never tried. I knew my sister liked it, but she failed to tell me how amazingly, chocolaty good it is. I am still slightly mad at her for that. I think I might forgive her if she gives me an Easter basket filled with nothing but Nutella goodness! 

After tasting it I knew I had to find something to make with it, but what? I'm not so great at making stuff on up on my own when it comes to recipes so I go on a hunt to take out of other peoples boxes and maybe alter them to my own liking. As soon as I saw the picture of this bread on The Hungry Dudes blog I knew I had found what I was going to be baking.

I did alter some things to try to make it "skinny" since I'm on that whole kick. I think I may have done alright, I don't really know! I'm still new at this whole game so if you know more than I do, feel free to leave a comment of what I could of done better or what I should have done. I would greatly appreciate it so I would know better in the future.  

I love the gooey center! Pure yumminess! 

This smelled so amazing as it was baking I couldn't wait to dive into it and now I can not stop eating it! I've already had 3 slices! It didn't come out as amazing looking as the recipe I went off of, but I don't mind one bit because the taste is WOW!
