This blueberry banana combination goes so well together and makes a super moist bread. Using lots of very ripe sweet bananas allows you to cut back on the fat without sacrificing the flavor and texture.

This is perfect for breakfast or snack and can also be made as muffins if you prefer. More banana bread variations I love are Banana Cranberry Bread, Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread, and Maple Pecan Banana Muffins.

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 school snack.

    Does anyone substitute the brown sugar for a sugar free product such as sweet and low etc, and how many points would you save??

  2. I love this recipe, and so does my husband. I make it for him when I need to get out of the dog house.

    I’m challenged to divide it into individual servings due to my own lack of skill. Has anyone every tried the batter in muffin tins, or divided brownie tins?

    Yum!! I made this today as muffins that I baked for 20 minutes. My only change to the recipe was by accident. I totally forgot to add the applesauce! But, they are still delish! 

  5. Is it possible to make this banana bread WITHOUT the blueberries and if so, would I need to adjust any of the other ingredient to offset the removal of the blueberries?  I have a client who likes plain banana bread.

    I made this today!!!  So good.  Probably the best banana bread recipe I’ve made and the blueberries yummy.  I used whole wheat flour and my blueberries were frozen I just let them thaw a bit before using them.  

  7. These have become a weekly staple for me and my husband! I make in muffin tins and estimate 4pts per muffin (makes 12). I’ve made these a bunch and currently do the following modifications: add 1tsp cinnamon, decrease brown sugar to 1/3 cup, add 2 Tbs oats, and substitute Avocado oil for the butter. I never have applesauce on hand either so I’ve omitted that as well and the muffins turn out great! We keep in the freezer and pop in the microwave 30 seconds. So good!

  8. Can you use whole eggs in your bread recipes- I tend to pass over your recipes with egg whites as I don’t want to waste the yolks
