Banana Nutella Swirl Whoopie Pie Recipe

September 2, 2014

I love bananas, they're healthy, sweet and a good source of potassium. What I don't like is how quickly they go bad. I find myself freezing them or baking them much faster than I can eat them. You can only make so many banana nut muffins or banana protein shakes before you become completely sick of them. So I started playing around in the kitchen and I decided to mix banana and Nutella, because duhThen, I got tired of muffins and decided to try making whoopie pies, because why the hell not?!
