Have you ever put blueberries in banana bread?

I was inspired to try it from this recipe over at Oh My Veggies.

Her recipe is vegan, and while I wasn't yet feeling that adventurous, I did think that adding blueberries was a great idea.

I know I said I was not prepared to feed my visiting family members the other weekend, but I did plan enough to at least make this bread ahead of time.

Though this would probably be a good side for any meal, it is probably best paired with brunch since it is a sweet bread.

Blueberries are in season, so I'm trying to find ways to use them in everything – smoothies, salads, and now even bread. I just can't get enough blueberries.

I LOVED the extra fruit in this bread. My recipe added 1 cup of blueberries, but there's room for you to add even more than that if you wanted extra flavor.

I also added a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, which is optional, but does give it a nice extra flavor.

Banana bread always takes longer to bake because of the texture, but it's worth the wait!

I baked at 350F for about 70 minutes.

A lot of times I see a glaze added to banana bread, but I don't think this recipe needs one. It's sweet enough to eat without glaze, because this is recipe certainly isn't plain!

Came out perfect. Not overly banana flavored. I added a sugar crumble to the top. I’ll make it again.

Great recipe! I added 1 cup of white chocolate chips & it was perfect. This bread is not overly sweet, even w/ the added chocolate. This is definitely a keeper.

Can I use bread flour

Kelly

You can substitute bread flour in a pinch, the difference is that bread flour has more gluten. But it will result in a different (chewier) texture!
