BLUEBERRY BANANA BREAD RECIPE
To make this blueberry bread, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Then gather the ingredients you will need to make the bread.
In a large mixing bowl add the bananas, yogurt, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, and butter. Mix together with a spoon until well combined.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well together.
Before you add the blueberries to the batter, you will want to mix them in a bowl with about a tablespoon of flour. This will prevent the berries from sinking in the batter. Fold 1 ¼ Cup of blueberries into the batter and save ¼ cup of blueberries for the next step.
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour in the batter. Top with the remaining ¼ cup of blueberries.
Now it is time to bake your blueberry banana bread. Place the bread in the oven for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Isn’t this bread just gorgeous? I can assure you, it tastes even better than it looks!
Slice the bread and serve with butter or alone. Either way, you can’t lose! Now that we have made this yummy blueberry banana bread recipe, my kids say they prefer it to plain banana bread. The blueberries add a moistness and flavor to this bread that can’t be beat.
