Once again I had some ripe banana’s sitting on my counter.. funny story, I was hosting a Christmas party and my “ripe” banana’s became topic of discussion. A few people were saying how gross the ripe banana’s looked and should of been disposed days ago, I then learned these same people like to eat their banana’s green, yuck! Green banana’s to me do not taste good and the texture is just all sorts of wrong 😉 But each to their own I guess… anyway I took my ripe banana’s and made this delicious banana nutella loaf..Probably the most decadent loaf I have made, it’s 6 smart points a slice (or 4pp) but it is so worth it! 🙂

    Can I use whipped butter instead of the margarine? I have land o lakes and it is 2sp for 1 Tbsp, the same as for light margarine. Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes on your site. I have a list of the ones that I want to try!
