How to make blueberry banana bread.
This blueberry banana bread is perfect for a quick breakfast on-the-go, a healthy snack to throw into your lunchbox or for a midnight treat. It’s perfectly fluffy and dense, filled with the freshness of real blueberries with a subtle hint of cinnamon. You can eat it cold or warm, with a glass of almond milk or on it’s own. And don’t forget about the sweet aroma of fresh blueberries, banana and cinnamon that fills the room. This aroma can wake anyone up on a Sunday morning. So here I share with you a healthy, vegan, no artificial anything blueberry banana bread.
So here’s the story, I was on the mission to make vegan blueberry muffins. And though I did make the blueberry muffins, they weren’t very muffiny. To me, the consistency was more bread like. So I simply thought “why not make this into a blueberry loaf instead?” I mean if there is a zucchini bread out there I could surely make a blueberry bread right? And so it was born!
I whipped up the blueberry banana bread that night, and that morning I had 3 slices. (I know, total overload.) So of course I had to make sure this recipe was blog worthy so I had my mother and stepdad try it out. And let’s just say, they kept asking where the bread was. So keep reading and check out the recipe below. Make it now and thank me later.
2.5 Gluten-Free Cup of Oat Flour
Tbsp Coconut Sugar (optional)
Tbsp Baking Powder
3 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp Salt
Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil (solid)
3/4 Maple Syrup
1/4 Unsweetened Applesauce
4 Ripe Bananas
Huge Handful of Blueberries ( it depends on how blueberry-eee you want it to be)
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Blend oats into a blender to make oat flour and pour it into a bowl. Then add in the the coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda into the bowl as well. Stir all the dry ingredients together so that each ingredient is dispersed evenly.
Step 3: Take your 4 ripe bananas and blend them in a blender until there is a smooth consistency. It’s okay if it’s a little gritty. Then pour it into a separate bowl.
Step 4: In the same bowl as your banana consistency add in the applesauce, pure vanilla extract, maple syrup and coconut oil. Now stir all of the wet ingredients together so that each ingredient is dispersed evenly.
Step 5: Take the bowl of wet ingredients and stir it into to your dry ingredients until it all becomes one consistency.
Step 6: Add in your large handful of blueberries and stir it into the mixture, also dispersing the blueberries evenly.
Step 7: Finally, pour the mix into a greased bread loaf pan. Place the pan in the oven for 40 minutes and bake.
Step 8: Take in the sweet blueberry aroma coming from the oven and then take the blueberry banana loaf out.
Step 9: Let them set overnight or for 5 to 8 hours so that the bread can become denser.
Step 10: Slice and eat!
