Blueberries and bananas combine in these tender, golden loaves. Whether you enjoy a slice as a snack or for breakfast, this bread is so flavorful, you won't need butter. —Sandy Flick, Toledo, Ohio

"great love it kids do aswell"

MY REVIEW

"I used coconut oil instead of shortening. I also used 3 very, very ripe bananas, increased the blueberries to one and a third cup, and added about one-half cup of sweetened coconut. I used one large pan and had to cook for about 65 minutes.

This was awesome!!! Everyone loved it. Very moist and flavorful. Pecans could also be added for nut lovers, I may try that next time."

"I used a stick of butter in place of the shortening and added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I also added more blueberries for personal preference. I made one large loaf, so it took about an hour to bake. The texture was excellent and everyone in the family loved it! Next time I will plan to use 3 bananas for more banana flavor, but overall it was very good!"

"It was excellent and my family really liked. However, the time is way off. It took almost 50 minutes, not 35 like the directions say."
