This blueberry banana nut bread is best when blueberries are in season. You may also use frozen blueberries, if fresh berries aren’t readily available.

Blueberry Banana Nut Bread

Preheat your oven to 350° F. Butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.

Mash the bananas with a fork in a large bowl. Stir in the sugar, eggs, buttermilk, salt, toasted wheat germ and oats. Let stand 5 minutes or until oats soften.

Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda in small bowl. Add to banana mixture alternately with oil, stirring just to incorporate.

Fold in blueberries and pour into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes and serve warm with butter blended with honey.
