Blueberry Banana Bread

Yum

Blueberry Banana Bread from 101 Cooking For TwoAround here Mother’s Day should be called “Blueberry Day”. This year the treat was something very special, a wonderful blueberry banana bread. A great treat for a special day or a special person. Oh So Easy.

Over the years I have always made breakfast for my wife on Mother’s Day. Some of my best recipes are the results, usually involving blueberries. To find what my wife is thinking I sometimes hit up her Pinterest page.  This time I found a blueberry banana bread recipe… looked good and nice pictures… but… not my banana bread. You see, I think my banana bread is the best banana bread ever.

So out comes the nuts, add in the blueberries, a little vanilla and you’re there.

    Thanks for another great recipe! I would never have thought to combine blueberries and bananas but just happened to have to both in the refrigerator.:) My only modifications were agave syrup for sugar and coconut oil for vegetable oil because that’s what was on hand. Love your Web site–it combines two of my favorite things: food and dogs!

    Made this last week and it was delish! Next time I think I will try a crumb topping on the loaf.

      I started to do a crumb top and decided there would be too much crown. Give it a try and let us know.
