This recipe is from my mom's book. She’s been baking it the same way for years and she has mastered it. I remember the house smelling amazing every time. I of course have made some of my own adjustments to the bread over the years, but the original will always be my favorite.

Ingredients For Blueberry Banana Bread.
Bananas. This recipe calls for 3 over ripe bananas. I always buy extra bananas to have on hand to bake with.
Blueberries. Fresh or frozen will work great for this recipe. I typically use fresh because they add a different level of moist-ness to the bread however frozen is great!
Eggs. You will need 2 eggs, room temperature. I typically pull the eggs out and leave them on a towel for a few hours. otherwise you can gently hold the egg in your hands for a bit to take the chill out.
Granola. This is an optional mix-in! It's my favorite mix-in but this bread is so delicious without granola as well. I like to use any granola I have on hand or I just make my own with this recipe here
Coconut oil. Or butter - your choice. I try to make as many things as I can dairy free so I often use coconut oil in my baking to do so.
Flour. You can use all purpose gluten free or regular powder for this recipe! If you'd like to make your own gluten free all purpose flour, I highly recommend reading up on how to measure for substitutions.
How To Make This Blueberry Banana Bread.
Step 1. Separate dry ingredients with your wet ingredients. Make sure you mash up the banana.
Step 2. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Make sure you do not over mix! I like to use a thick spatula and run it along the bottom of the bowl and turn the ingredients together. Add into a bread loaf pan and bake on 350 for 40 - 55 minutes. Oven temps vary so check with a toothpick and keep a close eye.
