Banana bread with blueberries

Banana Bread with Blueberries

The banana/blueberry bread was very good. I, and my family, enjoy banana bread and blueberries, so I knew it would be a hit. I highly recommend this bread!
Grade: A+
I found this recipe through Pinterest when I did a search for blueberry recipes. I have a bunch of blueberries and I decided to look for ideas. The recipe and directions were taken from
Total time: 1 hour
Adapted from Simply Recipes.
  • ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  Pinch of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
1) Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2) In a large bowl, mix mashed bananas, Greek yogurt and melted butter, using wooden fork or spoon. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix just enough to blend the ingredients; do not over-mix, the lumps will work themselves out.
3) Add chopped walnuts and whole blueberries to the batter and mix them in to distribute evenly through the batter.
4) Butter a 4×8 inch loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, butter the parchment paper too. Pour the batter in the pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
Note: lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper ensures that the bottom of the bread will not get stuck.
