Nutella-Swirled Banana Bread

I have a Nutella lover in my house who eats it every single day and I knew this would be right up her alley. Luckily she loves banana bread too. Yeah! Winner!.....except for my swirling skills. Actually next time I am just gonna add more Nutella and then I won't even have to do the swirl :) It was so good!
2 c flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c unsalted butter at room temp
1 c sugar
2 lg eggs
2 c mashed ripe bananas
1/3 c plain low fat yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c Nutella
Preheat oven to 350º Spray 8x4" loaf pan with nonstick spray. In medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt together to blend.
In a separate bowl, beat sugar and butter on medium until well mixed. Add your eggs, one at a time - beating well after each one. Add banana, yougurt and vanilla, beat on low until mixed ( don't over beat).
Spoon Nutella into a medium bowl and microwave for about 15 secs. Add 1 c of your banana batter to your soft Nutella and stir until mixed completely. Spoon your banana batter and Nutella batter alternately into your prepared loaf pan. Using a butter knife - swirl them together.
Bake 60-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Check on bread at 45 minutes for browning on the top. If it's browning too quickly, cover lightly with foil for the rest of the baking time. Cool for at least 15 minutes in the pan, then turn out into wire rack to cool completely.

That must taste amazing... I love Nutella! It could also be a secret ingredient in chocolate hazelnut bread... Oh the possibilities! Thanks for the great idea!
