Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

I can't even find the right words to describe this Nutella Swirled Banana Bread. Classic banana bread with a hint of cinnamon stirred with gooey, chocolatey Nutella is heavenly. I baked this a few weeks ago and brought it for a weekend at my parents. It was enjoyed by all and quickly disappeared. Amazingly delicious! Classic Banana Bread doesn't stand a chance in my kitchen next to Nutella Swirled Banana Bread anymore.

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread
·2¼ cup oat flour                            
·¼ cup white sugar
·¼ cup brown sugar
·1 tsp baking soda
·1 tsp salt
·1 tsp cinnamon
·¼ cup olive oil
·⅓ cup skim milk
·2 eggs
·1 tsp vanilla
·3 over-ripe bananas
·½ cup Nutella 

Preheat oven to 350˚. Combine all ingredients, except Nutella, in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Heat Nutella in a microwave safe bowl for 10-15 seconds (just until melty/softened, be careful not to microwave too long or it hardens). 
Pour 1/3 of bread mixture into a greased loaf pan, top with 1/3 of Nutella. Swirl together with a butter knife. Repeat two more times. Bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly then loosen sides of loaf and remove from pan. Cool completely before slicing.
