Blueberry Banana Bread

Blueberry Banana Bread is such a good, wholesome snack to fall back on, and with such honest ingredients it’s so nutritious, it’s almost a staple. Everyone finds that the last two bananas of the bunch tend to get left behind, and as each day passes they look less appealing, well this is the way to use them up and really make the most of their soft sweetness. The blueberries add a fresh juiciness to this combination, but the beauty of  banana bread is that you can mix and match with all sorts of additions such as dates, walnuts or raisins.  The basic ingredients remain the same while you can experiment with the fruity extras to make a nice change.
