Banana Blueberry & Nut Loaf

I’m super duper excited about this recipe for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I love loaves! The smell of them cooking in the oven, how soft and doughy they are fresh out of the oven and the fact that you can start with a staple banana bread recipe (Banana bread with walnuts) and basically throw in whatever you’re feeling to give it that extra POP of flavour and colour.

Secondly, I can’t get enough of all of these ingredients. Blueberries, bananas and delicious fruits and nuts complement each other perfectly and come together to create one hell of a nourishing looking bread baby and you can now make this one yourself too. Let’s get this bun in the oven!


4 very ripe bananas

1 and 1/2 cups plain flour

1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of nutmeg

pinch of salt

1/3 cup coconut sugar, or brown sugar

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Large handful of frozen blueberries

Handful of fruit and nut trail mix or nut of choice


1 Start by preheating your oven to 180ºC, greasing your bread pan (or line with baking paper).

2 In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt and set aside.

3 In a separate bowl the bananas. Make sure not to leave any big chunks. Small chunks are fine though.

4 Add the sugar and oil to the bananas and mix until evenly combined.

5 Once the oil and sugar are incorporated, gently fold in the dry ingredients just enough for everything to come together.

6 Now, gently fold in your blueberries and other nuts.

7 Pour the batter into your prepared bread pan.

8 Bake at 180ºC for 30-40 minutes, then test the bread with a toothpick for doneness. (it should come out clean) If the bread is still too moist bake at 10 minute intervals until done.

9 Store in an air tight container to keep fresh.
