Step 7: Bake about 60 minutes, or until done and a toothpick or cake tester inserted near center comes out clean. You’ll want to loosely cover the loaf with foil when the top is brown, after about 30 minutes.

Step 8: When done, remove pan to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes.

Recipe Notes

If using frozen blueberries, tossing to coat in a little baking mix (or flour) will help them from running and turning the entire loaf blue.

Make this breakfast loaf gluten-free by using gluten-free baking mix.

This can also be easily adapted for vegetarians (and vegans) by replacing the eggs with flax eggs. In place of one egg, use one tablespoon of ground flaxseeds (flaxseed meal) mixed with three tablespoons of water. Mix the flax meal with the water and let it sit for a few minutes to thicken, then proceed with the recipe.

Another vegetarian egg replacement you might want to try (per egg) is using ¼ cup applesauce combined with ½ teaspoon baking soda and mixed well.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy a slice of this deliciously moist banana bread at breakfast (or brunch) with a Berry Yogurt Cup, or a hard-boiled egg for a little protein boost.

Reheat a slice in the toaster oven and then spread with a little almond butter.
