  • 2 small ripe bananas or 1 large banana
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 5 tablespoons light brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 90 grams plain/all-purpose flour 3/4 cup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50 grams blueberries - fresh or frozen 1/2 cup


  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4 and either line with baking parchment or lightly grease a one pond loaf tin.
  • In a medium sized bowl mash your banana's really well.
  • Mix the oil, sugar, egg and vanilla into the mashed bananas and mix well.
  • Gently fold in the flour and baking powder to form the batter.
  • Fold the blueberries in holding a few back to scatter over the top, to give you those jammy bits.
  • Scatter the remaining blueberries over the top and place the tin in the middle of your oven.
  • Bake your banana blueberry bread for 40 minutes, even though it is a small loaf it still needs this time to bake off. Check the bread with a pick, if the pick comes out clean then your bread is baked through if not give it another 5 minutes. Cover with tin foil if your bread needs longer in the oven.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before placing on a wire rack to fully cool down.


  • This bread freezes really well, wrap in plastic wrap then tin foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
