Blueberry Banana Bread

This low-fat banana bread isn’t lacking in flavor or moisture!  Go ahead and give it a try; you’ll see what I mean.  Don’t fear adding tasty additions such as blueberries, cranberries, chocolate chips (it’ll add some fat), peanut butter, walnuts, raisins, etc…keep in mind they’ll add more fat but we all must indulge a little.

Measure out the flour, be sure to level with a knife.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir well.  Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture little by little until well blended.

If adding blueberries, you’ll want to fold them in now.

Spray your loaf pan with cooking spray and add the batter.  Bake at 350 for about 45-50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick  inserted in center comes out clean.  Allow the pan to cool then flip over to remove the banana bread.

Enjoy warm or cold!  I love adding raisins and walnuts to mine, the crunch of the walnuts adds texture, not to mention walnuts are healthy!
