Nutella Banana Bread (Weight Watchers)

This might be the best idea Pinterest has had in a while. Parker told me he had never tried Nutella before, which should be illegal, so I quickly bought a jar and found this recipe for his introduction to the delicious spread. I gave him a slice of this Nutella Banana Bread for dessert, and he marched right into the kitchen to get another slice. He loved it, and I really did too. It's a weight watchers recipe which can make us all feel kind of good about eating it, but somehow I don't think Jillian Michaels would be praising our will power for eating this. Nonetheless, it's delicious! Try this one!

(Each slice is 4 weight watchers points and about 138 calories...not too bad)


Ingredients:
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 T butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup Nutella- okay, I added a little more
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan. 
2. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in egg whites. Add banana, vanilla, and applesauce and mix together. Set aside.
3. In a separate medium bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt.
4.  Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir until incorporated.
5. Warm Nutella in the microwave for about 40 seconds or until it is softer and melted.
6. Pour banana bread batter into your greased loaf pan. Slowly spoon Nutella on top of the batter and swirl into the bread using a knife until all the Nutella has been worked in.
7. Bake 40-45 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool and enjoy!
