Banana Blueberry Oat Bread

We were inspired by a recipe over at Inside BruCrew Life so we decided to give it a try. Banana Blueberry Oat Bread - yum!

I love making dessert type breads because they tend to freeze really well and a slice makes an excellent addition to a school lunch.

Banana Blueberry Oat Bread


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream (I like to use greek yogurt for added protein)
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, washed and drained


Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350℉.

Step 2:
Grease loaf pan and set aside.

Step 3:
With an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar for a few minutes, until creamy.
Add honey, vanilla, yogurt and banana and cream well.

Step 4:
In a medium sized bowl, mix together dry ingredients.

Step 5:
Add the dry mixture alternately with the milk into the creamed mixture, mixing together in between. End with dry ingredients.

Step 6:
Gently mix in the blueberries.

Step 7:
Bake for approximately 1 hour, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Family Thoughts:

As per usual, muffins and breads don't last very long in this house! This bread was gone within a day. It was very moist and because of this (and perhaps a few extra blueberries), it did fall apart just a bit, but I would definitely make it again. Everyone enjoyed this delicious, healthy bread.
