Blueberry Banana Bread

A classic banana bread recipe full of juicy blueberries with minimal ingredients!

Blueberries and bananas are two fruits I have pretty much everyday in my morning yoghurt bowl. I love the creaminess of the bananas and the blueberries are perfectly sweet - so why not have them both in a delicious banana bread? Banana bread for breakfast is my grab-and-go option when I don't have much time in the mornings before work or university, and it's a real luxury when I get to enjoy a piece at home so I can toast it. A toasted slice of blueberry banana bread with almond butter is an elite combination FYI, that or some thick vegan greek-style yoghurt is also pretty special. Frozen berries also works just fine in this recipe, I sometimes find the fresh ones can be a little small and not as juicy! If you want to freeze this, I recommend slicing it first so that you don't have to defrost the whole loaf.
