Hey-wasn’t there a children’s book about a mouse that ate a blueberry pie and left blueberry foot prints all over the counter 🤔? I remember having that book as a kid and craving that blueberry pie so badly. I’m hoping I can get you to crave my “Blueberry Banana Bread” just as much, if not more. I mean just look at how scrumptious this fresh blueberry bread looks, and I promise, I won’t leave foot prints on your counter.
What’s really makes this bread interesting, is that I made it by accident 😳. I was just minding my own banana business in the kitchen making my sister’s famous Banana Bread and I opened the fridge. THEN BOOM! Those gorgeous blue berries jumped out at me and with a low, sexy voice said, “Hello, Julie.”
No way could I resist their charm. I scooped them up and threw them all in. There were approximately 1 cup, but I think even more could work.
Before I go and leave the recipe, please note that this Blueberry Banana Bread recipe makes 2 loaves this size (see below). I usually give one to a neighbor.
That reminds me…here’s my neighbor’s “review” of the Banana Blueberry Bread:
Hey, y’all…if you haven’t tried Redhead’s blueberry banana bread yet you are missing some of the BEST!! I was the lucky recipient of several slices straight out of Julie’s kitchen (even sweet talked myself a second helping!😋) and it is delicious. The blueberries, while unusual, were a great sweet twist.
- (This makes 2 loaves.)
- 3-4 ripe bananas (4 bananas is best)
- 1-2 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (light)
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used canola)
- 1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
- 1 egg
- 1 cup nuts-optional (I used walnuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 loaf pans with Pam or grease them. Could use cupcake pan/papers too.
Peel 3-4 ripe bananas, and mush them up in a large bowl.
Wash blueberries, dry and set aside.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Add blueberries last and gently fold into batter.
Pour 1/2 into each loaf pan and make sure a few blueberries peek through the top.
Bake for 1 hour.
Serve with butter, or plain! Excellent warmed up in microwave.
