Blueberry Banana Bread
Delicious way to use an abundance of blueberries while they are still in season!
We always look forward to fresh blueberry season, and plan for lots of ways to enjoy them. But, inevitably, we seem to fall behind in our ability to consume them before they pass their prime. Salads, pies and preserves are all great ways of utilizing these superfood berries. Today, however, I also have a handful of overripe bananas looking for attention. So, Blueberry Banana Bread! The result is rich, moist, and surprisingly light.
It can be toasted for breakfast or slathered with cream cheese for an afternoon tea treat.
Note: This recipe requires no milk or additional liquid. It’s a thick batter, so but sure to check for doneness before removing from the oven.
