Banana Blueberry Bread

Sharing is caring!

Delicious, moist banana blueberry bread chauked full of fresh summer blueberries and crunchy chopped walnuts. The simplest banana bread ever!

Banana Blueberry bread is chalked full of banana chunks and walnuts and bursting with juicy blueberries. This is the most simple and delicious bread ever and, quite possibly, my favorite banana bread recipe.

This summer seems to have flown by and fall is right around the corner. It’s time to use up summer’s bounty. What will you be doing? Canning? Freezing? Baking?

I love baking in the fall. The cooler, crisp air, fall leaves and the scent of warm spice coming from the oven, warms the soul.

I found this banana bread recipe in a cookbook called “Beyond grits and gravy”. I made a few changes to it to suit my taste and then added fresh blueberries because bananas and blueberries are “Yum” together!

  • 4 large bananas 3 mashed and 1 cut into small chunks
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix until just combined. Fold in 1 cup of blueberries and then pour into the loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes clean when inserted in the center of the bread.

Let the bread cool on a wire rack. Slice and enjoy!

Suggested toppings:

  • Peanut butter or other nut butters
  • Lemon Curd
  • Toast and top with butter and cinnamon sugar
