Why this banana bread with blueberry recipe works?

It’s super easy to make with a bowl, wooden spoon, and a few basic baking ingredients.

The crumb on this sweet quick bread is extra tender and delicious.

The Greek yogurt lends an ever so slight tang to the flavor of this bread. The white chocolate and bananas add sweetness, the chopped pecans add crunch, and the blueberries add extra freshness, texture, and an extra boost of nutrition.

Can overripe bananas be stored in the freezer?

Yes!! I do it all the time.

Once a banana turns all spotty and brown, take it out of its peel and cut it into pieces. Store the pieces in a zip-top bag, squeeze out the air and keep them in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Additional overripe bananas may be added to the same bag as needed.

To use, take out the bananas you need for baking out of the freezer, thaw them on the counter (this will only take about 15-20 minutes), and you’re then ready to use them as needed.

Can frozen blueberries be used in this recipe?

Yes, but there are a few easy steps you’ll need to take first.

  1. Thaw them thoroughly first.
  2. Make sure they’re as dry as possible after thawing.
  3. Toss them lightly with 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour before adding them to the quick bread batter.
  4. Stir the batter ever so gently to keep the batter from turning blue/purple.

Can other nuts be used in place of the pecans?

Sure. Feel free to swap out the nuts depending on what you have on hand, or use whatever nuts are your favorites.

Or, if you’re not a fan of nuts at all, feel free to leave them out completely if you prefer. Your bread. Your call.

Can the white chocolate be left out of this quick bread recipe?

Of course.

I’m not here to tell you that you have to follow this recipe 100%.

You can make this Blueberry Banana Bread your own by tailoring the add-in ingredients to suit your tastes and preferences.

Feel free to leave out the white chocolate chips if you’d like, or maybe swap them out for semi-sweet chocolate chips, do a combination of chips, or maybe try cinnamon chips or even caramel chips if you prefer. Mmmm. *note to self* LOL

The step-by-step photo instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mash 3 overripe bananas (about 1 cup) in a large bowl.
  • Add room temperature eggs, vanilla extract, Greek yogurt, melted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar to the bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Add all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the bowl and stir well.
  • Next add the chopped pecans, white chocolate chips, and fresh blueberries to the batter.
  • Stir gently to combine the batter thoroughly.
  • Spoon the batter evenly into a standard loaf pan that has been sprayed with baking spray.
  • Bake in a preheated 375-degree (F) oven for approximately 60 minutes, or until the loaf is deeply golden brown and a pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack for 45 minutes, turn the loaf out of the pan and cool completely before slicing and serving.

Can this banana blueberry quick bread be frozen after baking?

Yep!

You can either freeze the entire loaf unsliced or slice it and freeze individual slices.

Just make sure to wrap it very well in plastic wrap and you’re good to keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
