Gluten Free Banana Bread With Chocolate

Going gluten free a year ago seemed daunting at first. Once I started getting into the swing of things, I realized there are so many gluten free options out there. One day after yoga I went over to visit my aunt, who is also gluten free. She had just made this recipe and offered me a slice. It was heavenly. While I’ve always been a fan of banana bread, the chocolate nutella swirl takes it to a whole other level. This banana bread is super soft, moist and is a great snack if you’re wanting something sweet.
