Are you looking for a Lemon Blueberry Banana Bread recipe for spring and summer? This one is bursting with berries and made with healthy Greek yogurt.
Lemon and Blueberry is one of my favorite flavor combinations for spring and summer.
It’s just so refreshing and reminds me of breakfasts eaten on the porch in the first gleams of the sun.
My toddler just so happens to love blueberries, too. Or “buebewwies”, in her own words. She’s a pretty good talker (all day, every day ?), but some words just make her tongue stumble. ❤
This one is actually the fresh and fruity part of my How To Make Whole Wheat Banana Bread (Plus 4 Flavors) post, where you can hop if you’d like to see detailed instructions on how to make whole wheat banana bread that tastes delicious, and watch a fun instructional video!
Now baked goods with blueberries can be a bit tricky sometimes, because blueberries can be so juicy.
If you’re concerned about having dense spots around your blueberries (I’m usually not because I’m lazy like that), you can toss them in some extra flour before folding them into the batter.
If you’re as happy as I am about one less bowl to wash and one less step to take, simply make sure they’re dry when you add them, and make up for the a little less pretty interior by having your favorite lemon glaze ready 😉
If you’re wondering, our favorite lemon glaze is just a few tablespoons of icing sugar mixed with a few teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. Tastes amazing and is SO simple to put together.
