Blueberry Banana Bread – Classic Banana Bread studded with juicy and delicious blueberries. This is the perfect breakfast snack to serve with your morning coffee or tea.
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.
BLUEBERRY BANANA BREAD
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 Cream, a 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.
