Blueberry Banana Bread is perfect to serve at a brunch or afternoon tea! July is National Blueberry Month and what better way to celebrate by making and serving this delicious bread. Personally blueberries are one of my favorites to munch on and in the past I have never thought of putting them in my banana bread recipe until now.
I had an abundance of blueberries in my fridge that I purchased at the local farmer’s market and was about to freeze them when I thought of the idea to make Blueberry Banana Bread. It turned out so yummy and I had friends asking for the recipe! Also when I made this banana bread I made it gluten free by using my gluten free flour so that I could give Melissa a couple slices to enjoy.
Did you know you can freeze bananas? That is a great tip for over ripe bananas or bananas that you find on managers special.
