This is an excellent recipe for banana blueberry loaf! Be sure to mash the bananas with a fork, don't puree them, this gives for a better texture to the loaf. This recipe makes two loaves, I have even made these in mini loaf pans also. These loaves freeze wonderful, and are even taste better the following day! I have used cranberries in place of the blueberries --- I have recently reduced the ingredient amounts to this recipe to yield one loaf instead of two, you may omit the cinnamon if desired.
