One of my favorite breads to bake: Banana Blueberry Bread
Since blueberries are everywhere right now, and they’re available at a decent price… it’s a good time to cook and bake with them. They add such deliciousness to recipes, and their fresh, sweet flavor is very much welcome in the summertime. Here’s a bread you can bake this weekend. It makes for an awfully delicious nibble for a weekend morning breakfast.
I’ve also found that slices of this bread make a great school snack. I slice up the loaf, pop the slices into little zip baggies and store them in the freezer. They’re easy to snatch and stuff in your child’s backpack for snacks. And my son enjoys being able to grab a slice for after-school munching too. Enjoy!
