Blueberry Banana Bread

Blueberry Banana Bread

Everyday Monday is my shopping day. I haul all the kids to the grocery store and battle it out, trying to get everything on my list. And every week I get too many bananas. My kids are young and picky, as most toddlers are. They will only eat a banana when it hits a sweet spot of no spots and no green marks, which for me is like 1 day of the whole week. That being said, I had 4 or 5 bananas going “bad” for a couple of days, I ate one, my husband ate one, and I pawned some more off to our 9 month old. So yesterday, I had 2 that were inedible by my whole family, so what’s a mom to do? Make banana bread.

As I was surfing the net to find a relatively healthy recipe, I realized that blueberries would mix well with banana bread! And we have blueberries, lots and lots of them! So I found a recipe courtesy of The Recipe Critic, and made a few adjustments, and bam! I had blueberry banana bread!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Ingredients:

1/2 C butter

1 C granulated sugar

1 t Vanilla

3 ripened bananas, smashed

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 C blueberries, fresh or frozen

2 C flour

1/2 t Salt

1 t Baking Soda

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease two 9 x5 loaf pans
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla.
  3. Add beaten eggs and mashed banana and mix until combined.
  4. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt  in a separate bowl and add to wet ingredients a little at a time until combined.
  5. Fold in blueberries.
  6. Pour batter into prepared bread pans and bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350 and continue baking for 30 minutes. The edges should be slightly brown and an inserted toothpick should come out clean. Let cool completely before removing from pans.

*I used Trivia, a sugar substitute, and they came out great!

*You can also make muffins with this recipe. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners and pour batter 3/4 the way full. Bake at 350 for 17-20 minutes.
