Banana Blueberry Bread

Made By: Ryan Noelle     March 11, 2013

     So on my counter were days old bananas.  All brown and soft, you know the kind.  What can I do with these to not waste them?  Well the usual is to make banana bread.  MMMM.  Well thats just what I  will do, make banana bread but SURPRISE, add blueberries!  Delicious!  To me the bananas that are extremely ripened are sweet enough that I did not add any extra sugar.  Of course some like their banana bread to be more cake like and by all means add some sweetness.  I would recommend applesauce, agave or coconut sugar.  But if you love to taste the bananas and blueberries in true form, no need to add extra sweetness!



    This is a bread you will feel confident giving to your family.  It is a great flourless, naturally sweetened non processed sweet bread.
