Secret Recipe Club-- Banana Nutella Swirl Bread

Woooo!! Time for another round of Secret Recipe Club! This month I had Cindy, from Everyday Insanity.

Cindy loves to bake as much as I do and I loved looking through her blog. She has lots of kids and grandkids and while I can't relate to the grandkids, I can definitely relate to the kids. She also have a huge love of Brownies!

Cindy has been blogging since 2009 and is also a member of Tuesdays with Dorie. She has a great mix of family favorites and treats and sweets and was definitely a blog I look forward going back to again and again to see what she is making!

I kept going back and forth on what I wanted to make. At first, I thought about these Nutty Granola Clusters.However, I also had some over ripe bananas that needed to be used as well so this Banana Nutella Bread won!

Be sure to check out all the other great recipes for this week's Secret Recipe Club!

Banana Nutella Swirl Bread

I am such a sucker for banana bread in any form. This sound slice-able right now. Forget dessert - this would totally hit the spot.
