Banana Blueberry Bread

Banana bread is DEFINITELY a favorite around here.  Sometimes I even throw is chocolate chips.  My go to recipe isn't exactly healthy so I needed to put a little spin on it.  

Bananas are always on my grocery list, sometimes my kiddos eat one every day and sometimes they will go almost a week with out one.  Having very ripe bananas is the perfect excuse to make a yummy loaf of bread!


Ingredients:
  • 2 Ripe Bananas (about a cup mashed)
  • 3/4 Cup Blueberries
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 3 TablespoonsVegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Quick Oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.  In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.  
Take 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture and toss with the blueberries to coat them.
In separate bowl, beat the eggs.  Add in mashed banana and vegetable oil.
Pour into flour mixture and mix until well combined.
Pour half of mixture into greased loaf pan.  Layer on blueberries.  Then pour on remaining batter.
Sprinkle top with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
Bake for 50 minutes.  Serve warm or cool and store covered
