Blueberry Banana Bread

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.

    Yum! I made it with cut up strawberries instead of blueberries just cuz that’s what I had and wanted to use.
    I cut down a tad on both sugars and the bread came out perfect! We prefer a little less sweet.
    Thanks for this recipe that doesn’t call for a ton of fat and yet simple.
