I'm pretty sure I got this recipe from Southern Living, most likely back in the 1980s. There are similar ones already post but I love this one the very best. The flavors of the bananas and blueberries are balanced and the bread is not icky-sweet. I've made both a loaf as well as muffins from this recipe, which doubles easily. Also freezes well...
