Blueberry Banana Bread…

Blueberry banana bread is moist and loaded with delicious blueberry flavor. 

The flavor of banana in this bread is subtle, but gives the bread its fluffy and moist texture. 

A tried and true recipe, this bread recipe is adapted from our ultimate banana bread super moist

Since I had a few containers of blueberries in my fridge, I figured why not add them to the recipe! 

Blueberries are folded in the batter and on top, giving it a superior flavor and texture. 

Best of all, there’s no need to add any icing or frosting on top.

With this recipe, you will yield 2 or even 3 loaves, depending on the size of the bread pan you use.

Giving you plenty to feed a crowd and even some to freeze.   

This blueberry banana bread will compliment any breakfast buffet table. 

It’s so good, everyone might pass or even skip the eggs with toast, and rather go for the another piece.

This Blueberry Banana Bread happens to be my daughters absolute favorite in the morning, and her favorite as a late night snack!  

Fresh bananas is what makes this bread super moist. It’s divine!

Plus, when you add in some fresh blueberries inside and on top, it adds an extra decadent flavor that melts in your mouth, making this bread even addicting. 

What’s not to love!

    1. Thank you Dawn and welcome to our blog!
      It's nice to meet you! And we look forward to hearing from you again!
      Enjoy and have a great weekend!

    1. Yes so true! The sour cream also makes it very moist but I feel it's the amount of the bananas mashed that helps make this bread so moist. I have made it with less bananas and the texture was different- not as moist.

  1. I have never tried Blueberry Banana Bread. This looks lovely! And if it has been endorsed by your daughter – who likely has had more than her good share of excellent food – it must be over the top!
