Ladies & Gents, before we get to this beautiful, extra-delicious, SUPERB Blueberry Banana Bread, I have an announcement… PSL is back!!!

NO, not Play Station Limited, as my husband thought… I LOL’ed for a few good minutes when I saw his face – he was dead serious.

But, no. We’re talking about the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. It’s there!!

BUT! And this is just a thought, BUT I do have the recipe for it. Well, the recipe may not be completely “Starbucks-it”, however this Pumpkin Spice Latte homemade recipe is the best one yet. Scouts honor.

Okey, Dokey. Now we can talk about blueberries and bananas. And bread. Or cake. I think it’s as good as cake, and don’t know why it’s called bread, but hey, who am I to talk. I never went to culinary school nor pastry school. I just cook and bake. Aaaaand hope for good results. (My fingers are crossed the entire time that I have something in the oven… I SUCK at getting things right the first time around.)

Yet, I think this awesome banana bread was perfect on the first try.

Usually, when it comes to banana bread, I just throw things in there and pray for greatness. Like this Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Candied Bacon. I know. It sounds ridiculous, but it’s incredible! Elvis approved, eh?!

This time around I just went overboard and bought an insane amount of blueberries. I knew I could eat them all, but I had to make some of those Blueberry Sauce Crepes with Honey Whipped Creama few dozen Blueberry Lemon Muffins, and a loaf, or four, of this seriously delicious Blueberry Banana Bread. In all honesty, you guys, I couldn’t keep my hands off this bread. It’s SO GOOD!

All muffins are stuffed away in the freezer, and I have school snacks for at least a month! The banana bread kinda didn’t make it to the freezer – most of it is in mah belly! If you want to do the same, make this bread ASAP. I promise you will love it. It’s such a good snack, and it goes really well with your morning coffee or tea.

ENJOY!

    I’ve made this recipe a few times now and LOVE it! It doesn’t last even a whole day in my house. Do you know how I can tweak it though to use chocolate chips instead of blueberries? I just tried a choc chip banana bread recipe and didn’t like it. Thanks so much in advance!

      HI! I also loooove this recipe. I make it all the time with all kinds of add-ins. :) I’m thinking you don’t want to crowd the chocolate chips too much, so about 3/4-cup should be good enough. It tastes great with any other berries, too! Let me know how it goes! Thank you!!

    Hi, I was wondering whether it would be possible to sub the sugar for honey? Might make this for Mother’s Day brunch! Looks delish!:)

    • says

      HI! This would be a great Mother’s Day treat!! Adding the honey will result in more liquid, thus you’ll have to adjust the amount of dry ingredients by adding more flour. However, because I haven’t tried it, I can’t tell you exactly how much more you might need. Please let me know how it goes.
