How to Make Banana Blueberry Bread

  1. Mix Dry: first, combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix Wet: mash the bananas in a large bowl until there are few lumps. Then, add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix.
  3. Combine Dry & Wet: slowly add dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Finally, add coconut oil and blueberries and mix again.
  4. Bake: transfer the batter into a greased bread pan. Bake at 350ºF for 45-50 minutes or until fully cooked.
  • Use ripe bananas: the riper the bananas you use, the sweeter your banana bread will be.
  • Tent if needed: banana bread looking too brown on the sides? Simply tent it with a piece of foil for the last 15 minutes.
  • Let cool completely: always let your banana bread cool completely before slicing or it may crumble!
