Summer Blueberries and Two Recipes

Summer Blueberries and Two Recipes

Each summer I usually receive blueberries from my grandparents’ blueberry bushes. This year their crop was smaller, but the ones they did harvest were huge and beautiful. I like to use blueberries in smoothies, and blueberry bread and muffins are always a delicious treat. I hope you enjoy both of the recipes listed below! The Blueberry Banana Bread is a heavier bread, while the Blueberry Bread is lighter in texture.

Blueberry Banana Bread

Ingredients:

2 eggs

½ c. unsweetened applesauce

1 tbsp. vanilla

3 ripe bananas

1 tbsp. baking powder

 ½ tsp. salt

1/3 c. stevia baking blend

2 c. unbleached all-purpose flour

2 c. blueberries

Directions:

1. Using a mixer, blend together the eggs, applesauce, vanilla, and bananas.

2. Add the baking powder, salt, and stevia baking blend. Mix briefly.

3. Stir in the flour until thoroughly blended. Add the blueberries.

4. Pour into a 9x5 bread pan, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour plus (until the center is baked). If the bread begins to brown too much on top, cover with foil to protect it from burning.

5. Allow the bread to cool. Slice and serve!
