cinnamon blueberry banana bread


With an extra kick of sweetness from blueberries this banana bread recipe is a delicious twist on this much-loved treat.

Cold weather makes me want to bake, which is weird because I don’t particularly love baking or eating sweets. I’m a strange chic, I know. I also can’t bring myself to waste food, which is why when I had two very depressing bananas staring at me from the kitchen I knew I had to whip up a banana bread. Enter this little ditty.

For old-timey classic recipes I always consult my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook circa ’94. I found their banana bread base recipe and added a little of my own pizzazz. Do you all have a go-to cookbook for those nostalgic recipes? Shoot them my way!

Okay girl, but how does it taste?

Uh – amazing. You all know I don’t post stinkers on here (and trust me, there are plenty behind the scenes). But I was pretty darn impressed with this banana bread. I know we all hate the word moist but I gotta say it here – not a dry crumb in site. The bread is buttery and full of flavor from the warm and cozy spices. And every time you get a bite with plump, sweet blueberries it’s perfection!

I honestly loved this loaf so much that I ended up eating nearly the whole thing myself. I was going to share some with our neighbors, but then, uh – I didn’t. LOL.

I hope you give this recipe a try for an awesome breakfast or a sweet afternoon treat!
