Olive Oil Banana Bread with Nutella Swirls

Before I came to the US, I had no idea what Nutella is..My sister who lives in New York always went on and on about it, and I always wondered " what it would be like "....So when I got a chance to come to US, it was one of the first things that I bought for my pantry.....And trust me, I am in love with it...Now I can go on and on about this lovely spread...It has taken over my favorite snack of bread slice and Namkeen.....It has made it's way into the sandwiched for the kiddo, morning milkshakes for Mohit and definitely my baking....I have already made a few things with Nutella, but could never take good pictures... So they are not a part of my blog still....But don't worry...I'll be posting each of them soon.....For today, I made this delicious banana and Nutella Bread....It was moist and dense.....Perfect with a glass of milk for the breakfast......And wonderful with a cup of brew in the evening.....And amazing as dessert after your meals...You can munch this bread all day long......So here is the recipe.......
