Kick your banana bread up a notch with some sweet blueberries and a crunchy topping! This recipe for Blueberry Banana Bread is made in only one-bowl, is super simple and will transform your ordinary banana bread into something amazingly delicious!
I’ve had three over-ripe bananas on my counter for at least a week. Today was definitely the last day I could even possibly think about using them in a bread before they went completely black! I’ve made banana bread a million times before, so I wanted to do something a little different with this recipe. But… it’s Sunday afternoon (obviously it’s not Sunday still… but it was when I wrote this hah!) and I didn’t want a huge mess in my kitchen or a big baking project!
So, I found a recipe by tablespoon that looked perfect! Only one mixing bowl (okay, two bowls cause you need one to melt the butter in… but only one mixing bowl) is needed for this recipe… which I think is my favorite part about this recipe. Well, that and how delicious this bread is! The subtle hint of cinnamon paired with the bananas and the burst of flavor and juice from the blueberries… holy cow.
SO so so so good! I knew the blueberries would add a whole new level of flavor to the banana bread, but I had no idea I’d love it this much!
And don’t get me started on the topped. Okay… maybe I will brag about it for a second. This oatmeal, sugar, and flour topping adds a crunch that just puts this bread over the top delicious! I don’t know why I haven’t used something like this before on the top of a banana bread. It’s so good! I love too that because it was a thin layer of topping on top of the batter, that it doesn’t flake off when I cut the bread. Nothing I hate more than slicing into a piece of bread and all the topping falls off!
If you’re in need of a quick, easy and delicious way to use up the ripe bananas in your house… definitely give this bread a try!
