Blueberry-Banana Bread


As promised here is the recipe for the most delicious Blueberry-Banana Bread ever. And the best part, it is low-fat. Hard to believe because this bread tastes so decadent, but it is indeed low fat. Each loaf makes 16 servings and each serving (a slice) only has 2 grams of fat and 183 calories. It is the perfect way to use up your fruit that is about to go bad. One little man in our house is a very big fan of this bread (this may be the only way I can get him to eat blueberries).

    Never baked before and since I retired I have started. Your recipe was great. In fact so great that I made a second with rasberries. The only thing I changed is only cooked for 50 minutes and cut the salt in half. Thanks for sharing.
