I don’t know why it took me so long to add blueberries to my banana bread, it’s a delicious combination I’ll be doing more often. We love banana bread in my house, Madison especially loves when I make it so she can have it for breakfast or snack in school. I have several varieties, Banana Nut Bread, Chocolate Chip Banana Petite Loaves, Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread and a Gluten Free Banana Bread.

Blueberry Banana Bread – super moist and low in fat!
