Blueberry Banana Bread
During quarantine, everyone is making bread and more specifically, I’ve been seeing a bunch of people make banana bread!
Banana bread is probably one of the best scents to be coming out of a kitchen. It’s the smell of comfort and that is what we all need right now in this questionable and uneasy time.
I think that’s also why many people are making bread. It’s therapeutic and it’s comforting because it has sweet memories associated with it. It’s also a nice distraction from the real world.
Last week, we had three really ripe bananas and some blueberries in the fridge that needed to be used so we combined them and made blueberry banana bread!
This blueberry banana bread uses the banana bread recipe I already have on the blog and although it has coconut in it, we omitted it and just substituted blueberries.
The banana bread recipe minus the coconut is a great base recipe for any banana bread that you want to make. Whether it is a blueberry banana bread or another type, it is sure to make all your banana bread dreams come true!
I feel like picking add-ins for banana bread is one of the most fun parts of making banana bread, haha…but one thing is for sure, I am NOT a nut fan in banana bread, or any baked dessert for that matter.
