Healthy Blueberry Banana Bread recipe

Hi everyone!

I was at the store the other day and blueberries were on sale.  I love this time of year when you can get fresh, gorgeous berries at such great prices.  I bought WAY too many and got home realizing I’d need to add them to some recipes to get through them all.  I seriously have trouble containing myself around produce sales!  That same week I just so happened to have some bananas that were on their last life… so it’s probably no big surprise on what I decided to make!

Now I’m the first to admit, I’m more of a COOK than a BAKER.  I find the process of measuring flour kind of tedious and get annoyed when it gets all over my kitchen BUT sometimes the effort is totally worth it.  This is one of those times.  This banana bread recipe came out perfect the first try and is SO good.  I really think you are going to love this Healthy Blueberry Banana Bread as much as I do!

Here’s why you’ll love this Healthy Banana Bread recipe…

Banana bread is such an easy thing to make.  Even if you aren’t much of a baker, it’s a great place to start.

This Healthy Banana Bread recipe is simply perfect because it’s made with white wheat flour and honey instead of refined sugar.   It’s moist and DELICIOUS!

The swaps leave the bread a bit better for you and just sweet enough.  The honey brings a subtle sweetness that’s easy to love.

The bread is also made sweet from the bananas!  The trick is to use bananas that are SUPER ripe.  You want them spotted and even starting to turn black.

Even with the honey and bananas… this isn’t the sugary sweet bread you might pick up from your local bakery… in fact, I think it’s better.

The fresh blueberries bake and burst into morsels of nature made sweetness that combines perfectly with the honey.  This is simply irresistible and will disappear in no time flat.

I love using those fresh berries in summer but you can get a taste of the season all year long by using frozen blueberries.

    We are in the thick of blueberry season here, and this is a great way to use them up! I love all variations of banana bread, so this is definitely up my alley!

    What’s the difference between white whole wheat flour and brown whole wheat flour? And what would be the conversion if I used almond flour instead?

      You can sub them equally! I just like the texture of the white wheat flour for this but they both will work!

    I absolutely love blueberry muffins and banana bread, so this is one I’ve gotta try!

    Yum! I’d just swap regular flour out for the whole wheat stuff to finish the bag and this sounds like a winner and beyond easy recipe.

    Hey Julie, This sounds wonderful, do you think it would work with a sub of Almond Flour to make it gluten free?
